Not for the first time midfielder Stuart Armstrong has been tipped to be a future captain of Celtic.
This time it’s coach and former player John Kennedy, who’s tipped the 25 year-old to take the armband when Broonie gives it up.
There’s no doubt Stuart has come on leaps and bounds under Brendan, probably playing the best football of his career as he showed at Hampden last week with his brilliant equaliser.
He’s also become a fixture in the side, playing in his favourite middle of the park role, a position he rarely played under Ronny, who signed him for the club, mainly due to the form of Broonie, and the then player of the year Stefan Johansen.
He also had a few niggling injuries to contend with.
Much of the talk about Armstrong future will depend on him penning a new contract with the Treble winners, although the management seem to be confident he will, fairly soon. Fingers crossed.
Vying for the captain’s armband with Stuart will be dye-in-the-wool Celt, Kieran Tierney.
Although a good five years younger, Tierney has shown great consistency and passion for the Hoops, epitomised last Saturday when he dashed from hospital to see his team mates lift the Scottish Cup.
Who can forget the sight of KT with the cup in one hand, and his other grabbing the badge showing how much it means to him to be a Celtic player?
While both players attract interest from clubs, far and near, maybe it would be a good idea to appoint one vice-captain to Scott Brown?
I don’t know if there’s the same prestige in being vice-captain of the club as there used to be, but it would be an honour just the same.
Over to you Brendan…
