Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has said captain Scott Brown deserves time to consider his future at the club.
The midfielder is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move away from the Scottish champions.
Speaking on Brown’s future, Rodgers said: “If anyone has deserved time to make a decision, it’s Scott,
“He loves it here and there will be an agreement between him and the club in relation to that.
“But he has absolutely every right, if he has options in this last period of his career, then he probably needs time to look at that.
“But that shouldn’t be taken by any Celtic supporters that he doesn’t want to be here, because he loves it here. He’s been absolutely top class for me for two-and-a-half seasons and we want him to stay of course.”
Brown has been with Celtic since signing from Hibernian in 2007 and has won eight league titles during his time at the club.
The 33-year-old, named the 2017/18 PFA Scotland Players’ Player of the Year and SFWA Footballer of the Year, has been linked with a move to Australia.
