Paul Robinson has tipped Scott Brown to return to Celtic as manager in the future.
The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, described the events that have unfolded behind the scenes at Parkhead in this calendar year as “bizarre”.
Brown, 35, announced last week that he would be leaving Celtic at the end of the season to take up a player/coach role at Aberdeen.
📝 Our history-making captain, Scott Brown will leave Paradise at the end of the season.
Thanks for the unprecedented success @ScottBrown8 🍀🏆
🟢⚪️ Captain. Leader. Legend. 🟢⚪️#ThankYouBroony 💚o/🤍

The club captain has agreed a two-year deal at Pittodrie after his pal Stephen Glass was appointed Derek McInnes’ successor.
Brown has made 36 appearances in all competitions this term, including starts in eight of the last nine Scottish Premiership games.
Robinson is convinced the centre-midfielder is destined to return to Parkhead as manager one day.
“Nobody knows that club better than Scott Brown,” he told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs. “He lives and breathes Celtic.
“Nobody knows what it is all about more than him and I do not doubt for one minute that he will come back and manage Celtic one day.
“I really do find it bizarre that they have not appointed a new manager yet, they have a young interim manager John Kennedy in charge and Scott Brown is now leaving.
“Whoever the new manager is, I am sure he would have have wanted Scott Brown to be there. Whether it would have been as a player or as part of the coaching team.”
