Sacked Premiership manager to replace Scott Brown at Fleetwood

Celtic legend Scott Brown was sacked by Fleetwood Town at the weekend following a defeat. The former Celtic and Scotland midfielder was unable to address The Cod Army’s alarming form which sparked managerial change at the club.

Now, Team Talk are reporting that Broony is to be replaced by Lee Johnson, who was sacked by Hibernian last month. The Englishman has managed a number of English teams and is viewed by the Fleetwood support as a coup.

Johnson has managed Sunderland, Barnsley and Oldham but it is believed that he impressed at interview with Fleetwood. The North Western club have just one point from their opening six games, resulting in Brown leaving the role.

Johnson’s tenure at Easter Road was marred by bizarre quotes and even stranger signings; however, it is fair that the latter isn’t solely his fault.

You wouldn’t be surprised to see Scott Brown come into Celtic in some role as he plots his return to the dugout at some stage. The player turned manager will likely want to spend a bit of time with his family, who remained in Edinburgh whilst he was down in England.

  1. Here in this little backwater of Scotland, Chris will get stuck because of his truthfulness!! Sevco pundets can say what they want, but do not dare to talk down the ibrokes middens, by telling the truth These ibrokes ” perpell” think they can get away with anything. I for one, have not seen a pen stroke against the thugs fighting Inthe stands, or the idiots who tried too climb into the directors box. It was slightly reported on social media, but has been ” buried” in the wake of the Scotland game!! But rest assured, had that been Celtic supporters it would have been headline in the “daily ranger”. What a great thing it is to be the best team in Scotland,!!! Hail Hail
