Strachan, who parted company with the SFA today, was of course a major influence in Brown’s decision to perform a dramatic U-turn and come out of his self-imposed Scotland retirement in 2016.
Brown’s return to the squad meant he was able to play a role in resurrecting Scotland’s World Cup qualifying campaign – even if they fell short at the final hurdle against Slovenia.
With Strachan’s leadership understood to be a major draw for Brown, there was immediately speculation that if the ex-Celtic manager left the Scotland set-up, Brown would soon follow.
However, the 32-year-old appears to have denied these reports.
After Tam McManus questioned the Daily Record’s article on Brown’s future, the Celtic skipper hit the re-Tweet button:
@ScottBrown8 seems to agree with me. Or maybe he's put his toys back in the pram ?

Is this Brown’s way of confirming he will continue to play for the national team?
Or will that depend on who the SFA bring in to replace Strachan?
