Latest Shocking Scott Brown Twist Rocks Celtic Park – Exclusive By Keith Jackass
Celtic fans are reeling today after the latest twist in the Scott Brown contract saga.
As this paper was able to exclusively reveal yesterday, talks have been ongoing but there is still no agreement, with the club desperate to secure their 33 year old non international captain on a new deal.
Brown’s lack of loyalty has been a source of discussion for years, since he left Hibs a decade ago to sign for the Parkhead club, leaving behind his team-mates and forcing Kevin Thomson to play football alone at Ibrox.
Brown had made verbal promises that the two would sign for the same club; cold hard cash was dangled in front of him by the unscrupulous leaders at Parkhead and in an instant Brown betrayed friends and fans both to join Celtic.
Now the shoe is on the other foot, as Lawwell and his people face losing Brown for free, with Australia a possible destination. It is not believed to be a problem that the club linked with him has yet to acquire a license to play football.
Lee Wallace spoke to this paper and confirmed that signing on with a club that lacks requisite licenses usually works out okay.
Brown is believed to be desperately unhappy at Celtic Park, as the pressure of trying to cope with a rampant team under Steven Gerrard begins to tell on everyone at the club. Sources who spoke to this writer were trying to put a brave face on it last night, but it’s obvious from the way they laugh before they hang up the phone that fear stalks the halls of Parkhead.
But it is the latest revelation that will truly shock Celtic fans to the core; this writer can exclusively reveal that Celtic Park insiders accept that one day Scott Brown will be too old to play professional football.
This news has yet to be given to Celtic supporters; the board is clearly fearful of a backlash especially in light of recent stories linking Rodgers to numerous clubs.
“This is just ridiculous,” one high profile supporter told this writer. “Our club never gives us the full picture, does it? I blame Peter Lawwell.”
