Scott Brown has said that he is delighted to have signed a new deal to keep him at Celtic until 2021.
The 33-year-old has been linked with a move to Australian side Western Melbourne, but he has decided to extend his 14-year association with the reigning Scottish Premiership Champions by signing a new two-and-a-half-year deal.
Brown admitted that he loves the club after he extended his stay at Celtic Park.
“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed this new contract extension. Celtic has been such an important part of my life for a long time now, since I joined the club back in 2007, and this really is home for me,” he told the official Celtic website.
“My focus, as always, will be on doing everything I can to deliver more success to this club in the months and year ahead, and in particular for our wonderful fans, who have given me amazing support from the moment I first pulled on the Hoops.”
During his time at Celtic, Brown has won eight Scottish Premiership titles, four Scottish Cups, and five Scottish League Cups, but speaking to Celtic TV, the Hoops’ captain said that he is aiming to win many more trophies with the Glasgow club.
“I love the club, I love playing in front of 60,000 fans, I love winning games and winning trophies.
“That’s why I came here – it’s so long ago now – and I enjoy every single moment of it, from training every day at Lennoxtown to playing in front of our fans. The main thing is for me to stay and try to win as many more leagues and cups as I possibly can.
