Video: Scott Brown Gives Steve Clarke Glowing Reference as Scotland Boss

Scott Brown has given Steve Clarke a glowing reference after taking over the Scotland manager’s role.

Clarke left Kilmarnock on Monday to become the Tartan Army manager on a contract until the end of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The appointment has been met with huge excitement among the Scottish faithful – Brown included.

The Celtic captain spoke to the media this morning ahead of his side’s Scottish Cup Final clash with Hearts on Saturday.

Brown spoke about a number of things, including the challenge of the Jambos, the young generation breaking through at Celtic Park and the current speculation over the manager.

And he also reserved some special praise for Clarke, who he believes is the perfect candidate for the job.

Brown said (skip to 8:43):

Unfortunately Clarke won’t be able to play Brown as he has been retired since February last year.

The Scotland manager will take charge of his first game against Cyprus at Hampden on June 8th and will name his squad for that next week.
