Scott Brown named new Fleetwood Town manager as Celtic great takes next step

By Robbie Copeland

Legendary Celtic captain Scott Brown has been named the new manager of Fleetwood Town.

Brown retired from playing after bringing his short-lived spell at Aberdeen to an end earlier this season.

In a Record Sport exclusive he revealed he wanted to move into management having had his coaching responsibilities stripped back by Jim Goodwin.

He had been linked with a number of vacant jobs in Scotland including a return to former club Hibs and also Raith Rovers.

But he has now been named the new head coach of League One side Fleetwood.

The former Celtic star told the club website: “I’m delighted to have been named head coach at Fleetwood Town, it’s a great opportunity at a really exciting club.

“I’ve always had a real desire to move into management and can’t wait to meet the players and staff and get started. The hard work starts now - I’m now looking forward to getting onto the grass."

Chairman Andy Pilley added: “I’m absolutely delighted to name Scott Brown as the club’s new first-team Head Coach. It was important as a club we took our time with this appointment and was delighted by the high calibre of candidates who applied.

“After a thorough interview process it was clear Scott was the outstanding candidate and someone who’s a born leader, a serial winner, and incredibly serious about becoming a successful manager.

"We feel we are the perfect club for Scott to start his managerial career and he’s the perfect person to lead us to a new era at Highbury Stadium - it’s a hugely exciting appointment for Fleetwood Town."
