Scott Brown backed for sensational Celtic return after confirmed news - pundit

Scott Brown is ready to handle the manager’s job at Celtic.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, former Rangers defender Alan Hutton said that although it is a “massive” job, Brown will feel he is up to the task.

The former Hoops captain has been tipped as one of the names to replace Ange Postecoglou as he departs for Tottenham.

The 37-year-old is currently in charge of League One side Fleetwood Town and helped them to a 13th place finish this season and guided them to the fifth round of the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history.

Brown won 22 trophies with the Celts that included captaining the side to a quadruple treble during his tenure at the club.

When asked if Brown could return to Parkhead in an assistant’s capacity, Hutton told Football Insider:I can’t see it.

Obviously the club will mean a lot to him, he has been an incredible servant to them, he was the leader for them for so many years but he has stepped out on his own now.

For him to take that step back and be a number two, I think right now he is going down the right path. He is doing a good job at Fleetwood so he will want to build on that year on year.

He is probably happy down there, a little bit away from the limelight where he can concentrate solely on what he has to do to become the best manager possible. I do not see him taking that step back to being a number two.

If they were to offer him the managerial job, it would be a massive one to take so early on but I know him quite well and it would be something that probably would not phase him.
