Celtic captain Scott Brown has signed a two-year contract extension that will see him remain at the club until at least 2020.

The 32-year-old Scottish international had less than one year remaining on his current deal, and has pledged what will likely be the remainder of his his footballing career to the club he’s served for ten years.

Brought to the Hoops in August 2007 by former manager Gordon Strachan, the former Hibernian midfielder quickly became one to watch due to his impressive technique and sharpness on the ball.

Three years later and he would assume the Celtic captaincy on a regular basis, a role given to him by then manager Tony Mowbray.

Last season Brown stepped up and showed just how good a leader he could be, as he guided the Hoops to an undefeated treble  – a first in 16 years.

His honours list since joining Scotland’s biggest club includes seven Scottish Premiership titles, three Scottish Cups and three League Cups.

Brown has been a key part of the team on the biggest stage in the Champions League, reaching the last-16 on two occasions – which is the furtherest Celtic have reached in the competition since it was rebranded in 1992.
