Scott Brown has spoken to the Daily Record about his future, saying that he wishes to continue his playing career at Celtic Park for years to come.

Now at 32, he has said that he is encouraged to keep on playing by stories such as Kevin Thomson and John Kennedy.

Thomson, a former Rangers and Hibernian star is 33 now and had to retire due to injury, while Kennedy, Brown’s friend from his time at Celtic, had to retire from football at 26 after an ankle and knee injury.

Speaking to the media, Brown said:

I just try to keep going. I know I’m getting older and one of these days I’m going to slowly fall down. But as long as my legs can take it I’ll keep battering them.

Brown has been ever-present for Celtic since joining from Hibernian in 2007 and was given the armband in 2010. He doesn’t look ready to pack it in yet either, that and his 14 domestic honours while in the East of Glasgow.

The Celtic captain is currently taking his coaching badges, with one eye on his career after football and he is getting plenty of advice from former managers such as Gordon Strachan and Neil Lennon, and current Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers.
