Celtic legend Scott Brown leads Fleetwood to FA Cup Fifth Round

Celtic legend Scott Brown has masterminded yet another big win for Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup as they beat Sheffield Wednesday in the Fourth Round. The result means that Broony will take his team to face Championship leaders Burnley, who are managed by Vincent Kompany, in the Fifth Round.

The game at Turf Moor will take place on the 1st March at 7:30pm.

Brown rejected the chance to remain at Celtic in order to take up a player-coach role under his pal, Stephen Glass. However, following the sacking of Glass and subsequent replacement Jim Goodwin informing Brown that his coaching opportunities would be limited, he made the decision to walk away from the North East. You would imagine that he is seeking to put his coaching badges to good use and build up experience with a long-term view to seal the Celtic job one day.

The midfielder bowed out at Celtic after 620 appearances, 46 goals and 22 trophies in the Green and White. The opportunity to make it as a coach will motivate Brown, a serial winner, to continue the impressive run he has made with the Cod Army in the FA Cup.
