After Rangers’ landmark Old Firm victory at the weekend, a major nemesis from recent years has the chance to jump ship.
Last evening, The Herald reported, that Western Melbourne have made a move for Celtic captain, Scott Brown.

The club are newcomers to the A-League and are clearly looking for an experienced head in midfield.

A lucrative three-year deal is reportedly on the table.
Additionally, two offers from the United States are there to consider.
Both Sporting Kansas City and Minnesota United are reportedly keen on the veteran’s services.

Any move for Brown would see the end of a 12 year association with Celtic.
However, after his own struggles at the weekend, any offer to jump ship may be tempting.
He was completely outplayed by the likes of Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack in midfield, drawing ridicule on social media, with accusations that his career is finished.

The icing on the cake for Rangers fans was that Jack’s winner both nutmegged and deflected off Brown.

Finally, the player who has goaded Gers players and supporters for so long, got his comeuppance.
For now, it remains to be seen whether Brown will move away or extend his stay with Celtic.

However, any move away is unlikely to take place until the summer. Therefore, he should see out the season in Glasgow.
In that case, the Gers will be hoping to inflict more defeats upon their rival, before he moves away for good.
