CELTIC captain Scott Brown believes there is still plenty of football to be played before he embarks on a coaching and management career.
The 35-year-old midfielder is coming to terms with the departure of Neil Lennon who resigned on Wednesday with assistant John Kennedy stepping up as interim boss.
Ex-Hoops captain Stephen McManus has been promoted from reserve team coach to the first team coaching staff but Brown insists any role like that is for the future.
Ahead of the visit of Aberdeen on Saturday, he said: “I am still too young for that.
“I am doing my coaching badges and I am learning quite a lot from John and the manager [Lennon] and other managers too.
“Now is not the right time for me to be jumping into becoming a player/coach or a coach or anything like that.
“I think I’ve still got a lot to offer on the field or with the lads on the training ground.”
It came as a surprise to Brown that former Celtic skipper Lennon resigned from his second spell as boss. The Hoops are 18 points adrift of Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership and the quest for a 10th successive title is in bits.
Brown said: “The manager is a legend of the club as a player and as a manager.
“He wants the best for this football club no matter what happens, whether he’s here or not.”
