With a strange and uncomfortable weekend for football fans across the United Kingdom with the game we love temporarily postponed owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, Celtic skipper and legend Scott Brown has been speaking about his future in the game given his advancing years in our midfield.
With nine Scottish Premiership titles to his belt and five Scottish Cups since making the switch from Hibernian back in 2007, there’s every expectation that he’ll make that ten titles this year, such is our advantage in the league table.
With the suspension, players are having to be sensible during the limbo when it comes to their own fitness levels at this point in time, and with plenty of talk about the 34-year-old’s future, he told Sky Sports this weekend that he would simply play on until his ‘legs fall off’ and he was pretty confident he would know when his body had decided enough was enough.
“Everyone keeps mentioning I’m getting older and older, but I’m enjoying the challenge. I still manage to keep up with the rest of them, so I think for me it’s about trying to keep my fitness levels as high as I possibly can and just trying to keep ticking out the games as long as I can too. One day I think my legs will fall off. I think that’ll be the end of me. I’ll be chasing somebody down the line and I’ll just be realising that this is time to call it a day. But for now, I think I’m probably as fit as I have been. I’ve managed to keep the fitness levels for the last three or four years at that maximum level, and as long as I can keep turning out results and we keep winning games I’m available for selection.”
