Scott Brown could be the first of many casualties at Celtic this summer.
That is according to former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of the 35-year-old moving to Aberdeen.
Stephen Glass was appointed Derek McInnes’ successor at Pittodrie yesterday, with the 44-year-old returning to the club he began his playing career with.

According to the Glasgow Times, he has approached Hoops captain Scott Brown to see if he would consider taking a player/assistant manager role at Aberdeen.
The centre-midfielder, who is out of contract at Parkhead this summer, is the favourite to become Glass’ assistant.
When asked by Football Insider if it would be a big blow to the Bhoys if Brown left, Campbell said:
“Scott Brown has been a great servant to that club but I am not sure if it would be a blow to lose him because there it going to be an overhaul come the summer anyway.
“Whoever comes in as their new manager is going to want to bring his own guys in.
“It is the changing face of Celtic right now. There is going to be a revamp from top to bottom.”
As quoted by the Scottish Sun, Glass hinted at a move for Brown when speaking shortly after his appointment at Aberdeen.
He said: “On the pitch if you’ve got a real leader in among the younger ones and maybe even the older ones who’ve maybe not felt that success or not had that belief you can notch things up a little more than what you’ve got.”
