CELTIC captain Scott Brown has signed a new two-year deal, the club has announced.

The Scotland international is in his 10th year as a Celtic player, and has agreed to extend his stay by a further two years after leading Brendan Rodgers’ ‘invincibles’ to a domestic treble last season.

Defender Jozo Simunovic has also signed a new contract, with his four-year deal set to keep him at the club until 2021.

Rodgers was thrilled to have secured the futures of the two.

“I am delighted for both,” he said. “Scott has been a great captain here over many years and certainly in the period I have been here, he has consistently played at a very high level.

“So I am absolutely delighted because he is a very important figure for us on and off the field and I have been delighted at his performance level and how tactically he has been playing the game.”
