Celtic have announced that skipper Scott Brown has signed a new four-year deal with the Scottish champions and will see the Scotland midfielder extend his stay at Celtic Park until 2018.
The 29-year-old, who signed from Hibs in 2007 for £4.5 million, has made around 300 appearances for Celtic and is seen as an integral part of the side. His new deal is a major boost for Celtic and is seen as a major endorsement of manager Ronny Deila.
Speaking to the official Celtic website, Brown said: “It’s an absolute privilege to extend my contract with Celtic, a brilliant football club and with such incredible supporters. This is a place that I call home.
“Being Celtic captain is a tremendous honour and it is a role which I cherish dearly. The team is in a great place just now and we’re all right behind the manager and the backroom team as they build for the future.
“I will do all I can with the manager and all the players at the club to deliver the success which our supporters deserve.”
A delighted Ronny Deila, added: “It’s fantastic. He’s the captain and he has a lot of knowledge and skills that we need in this team. We want to build the team around him. He is a leader and he has the values we want on the pitch.
