Scott Brown Appears to Deny Story He Would Retire if Gordon Strachan Left Scotland Job

Scott Brown has distanced himself from reports he would retire from international football if Gordon Strachan left his position as Scotland manager.

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:


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?
