Brown, who previously captained Scotland’s national team, has been a Celtic player since 2007 and appears to be keen on extending his stay, with talks over a new contract extension believed to be progressing well.

The 33-year-old’s current deal at Celtic Park runs until the summer of 2019 and the Hoops have wasted no time in working to secure his future at the club.

Brown, despite entering the twilight years of his playing career, remains an integral part of Rodgers’ plans with the Scottish champions and Celtic will hope to conclude negotiations with their captain in the imminent future.
