Celtic captain Scott Brown has confirmed he expects to sign a new deal with the club over the next “couple of weeks”.

The former Scotland international is the longest-serving player at Parkhead, having originally joined the club from Hibernian in 2007, and he has won 16 major honours during his time with the Glasgow giants, including eight Scottish Premiership titles and four Scottish Cups.

The 33-year-old’s current deal with Brendan Rodgers’ side is due to expire this summer, but he has confirmed it is only a matter of time before he puts pen to paper on a contract extension.

Brown said to STV: “Me and the club we are speaking. There is no problem between myself and the club.

They know I’m going to sign. There (are) no issues whatsoever. It’s just a matter of time for us to get it done.”

The midfielder went on to confirm that he is still not sure exactly how long his new deal will be, but he is convinced he still has a lot to offer at he highest level.

“We first started talking just before international break,” he added.

“It will be done in next couple of weeks hopefully. I still feel I’ve got a good few years left in me. That will be part of the discussion. I think two or three years easily. I feel fit and I feel good.”

Celtic and Brown will return to domestic action on Friday when they travel to The Simple Digital Arena to take on St Mirren and they are priced at 1.20 to win that match, while the Buddies are available at 13.00 and the draw is on offer at 7.00.
