Scott Brown has today committed his long term future to Celtic, stating on the3 Clubs official website that he is happy with life at Celtic. Brown had been linked with a 9M move to the English Premiership but has decided that his future lies at Celtic Park.

"It's fine if no-one is sold because I'm happy here," said the 23-year-old.

"I'm a Celtic player and I'm enjoying it just now. I want to keep that going. I'm enjoying winning games and looking forward to the future.

"The thing is everyone wants Champions League and Uefa Cup football. We are disappointed that we didn't get further but there's always next year."

Brown also commented on the weekend's game that saw Celtic drop two points at home to Craig Levein's in-form Dundee United.

"We still have a lot of games to go in the season and we'll have to prove ourselves over those,"

"I didn't think it was over at 2-0 against United. The game's never won at that point. United came out well second half and dominated the game. We didn't really get into the fighting spirit.

"The disappointing thing was the second-half performance. We'll have to play better than we did then and keep the ball better.

"Everyone's frustrated and nobody enjoys drawing a game, especially when we were two goals up and playing so well.

"Every team that comes to Celtic Park and Ibrox wants to fight and play as well as they can because Celtic and Rangers are the two main teams in the league. Other teams want to prove they are just as good as us.

"Against United it just didn't come off for us. We created a few chances and had one cleared off the line, but fair play to them, they played very well on the day.

"I think Craig Levein's done very well for Dundee United. They have drawn their last four games against Celtic and Rangers and that shows you how good they are."

The news that this player is happy with his lot at Celtic is indeed welcome as he has really stepped up to the plate this season and shown that he is more than capable of bossing midfields without falling foul of the refs notebook. Keep up the good work.

Yours in Celtic
