Celtic defender tips Scott Brown to become club manager one day

SCOTT BROWN was the man that brought the Scottish Premiership title out to the centre circle on Sunday, his tenth during his time at the club and his ninth in a row. However, at age 35 many are wondering how long he has left at the top of the game. One man that knows that Brown will have no trouble finding work when he finally decides to hang up his boots is his teammate Christopher Jullien. The Frenchman told BBC Sport that he has “never had a captain like this” before.

“He is just a spirit, everything. He will definitely be in my memory for a long time. I think he can be everything at this club.

“He gives his power and his mentality to all the players. I can just imagine doing it if he wants to. I think he has all the qualities. He has the mentality and he is really smart.”

Jullien is in his second season with the Scottish Champions and whilst he has only recently played with Brown for a short time, he can see the midfielder stepping into the dugout when he decides to retire.

Brown worked with the Celtic U20s in the 2015-16 season but decided to step back from coaching in order to focus on playing. Since that time, Celtic have won 11 trophies in a row vindicating his decision to step back.
