Celtic legend Scott Brown linked to Championship vacancy

Celtic legend Scott Brown is the latest name to be linked with the Inverness Caledonian Thistle vacancy. Broony was sacked by English League One side Fleetwood Town earlier this season and, according to BBC’s Iain Auld, could be set for a return to management with the Highlanders.

Speaking to BBC Sportsound yesterday, Auld, updated fans to say that the Scottish Championship side were looking to make a quick appointment.

“You mention about names, I’ve head a few in the build up to this one.

“I’m led to believe there was a board meeting which took place before kick off and the board of directors are keen to make a quick appointment.

“Darren O’Dea is still the one that I think is top of the list here at Caley Thistle but interestingly Scott Brown has been in Inverness this week.

“I don’t know if he has been up visiting or if he has been in contention.”

ICT were beaten 1-0 by Dundee United with a 90th minute winner giving Jim Goodwin’s side maximum points.

Celtic coach Darren O’Dea and ex-Hibs Assistant Jamie McAllister are the favourites for the gig but Brown could very well be the outstanding candidate. Although, you would be surprised if Brown made the quickfire return to management at this stage.

Brown won a colossal 22 trophies during his fourteen-year stint at Celtic before moving at the end of the 2020/21 season up to Aberdeen. This was a move that would allow him to work as a coach with Stephen Glass but he then departed with Goodwin arriving. Despite offers to continue playing, Broony retired that summer and moved swiftly into management, enjoying relative success in his debut season.
