Scott Brown is hoping that his experience of winning silverware at Celtic can help his new team Aberdeen win some too. Brown was named as the Aberdeen captain after spending 14 years a Celtic. He will work under a familiar figure Stephen glass. He revealed that the tough battles against Aberdeen in the past were a major factor behind him making the move.
“They pushed us all the way, they gave us [Celtic] a great challenge,” Aberdeen captain Scott Brown said. “That was what pushed me towards Aberdeen and knowing Stephen (Glass) as well, that helped. They have had ambition, they have been to semi-finals and finals in the past and I want to try and help them, hopefully, push them over, and hopefully we can get some medals to this club.”
Brown insisted that a change in the club will not change his combative style of play. He revealed that he would like to win the game and that’s all that matters irrespective of the opposition.
“I might not be everybody’s cup of tea, I gather that,” he added. “I wasn’t everybody’s cup of tea at Celtic or Hibs either and I have not really changed as a player over the last 14 years. I have always got that drive, I like to do the ugly part of the game as well, I like to stick my foot in, I like to wind opponents up. It’s part and parcel of who I have been over the last 20 years of my career.”
