Aberdeen have named Scott Brown as their captain for the new Premier League season. The club also named Joe Lewis as their club captain. Celtic and Scotland joined Aberdeen in a player-coach role after signing a pre-contract in may. The Celtic legend made more than 600 appearances during his time at the club. He won 10 Scottish Premiership titles during his 14 years with the Scottish giants. Brown has earned 55 caps for Scotland in his career.
“I am pleased to announce that when we welcome fans back to Pittodrie on Thursday, Scott Brown will lead the team out as team captain.” Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass said about Scott Brown. “We are all happy to have him here and are looking forward to seeing the impact that his leadership, both on and off the park will bring to Aberdeen FC. I am certain the supporters will enjoy watching him represent our great club, I know he is proud to have been given the honor of leading the team as captain. I can assure you all that the drive he has to continue his record of being a winner, now in the red of Aberdeen, will be evident immediately.”
“It is also important to acknowledge the role that Joe Lewis has played as captain and will continue to play for us as club captain,” he added. “Following conversations with him, I am pleased that he has a desire to serve as club captain. Joe continues to command great respect in the dressing room, as well as among the Aberdeen fans, and along with Scott and the rest of the squad will strive to deliver a winning team for you all to celebrate with.”
