The 23-year-old midfielder credits his old boss as the man who pulled him back from the brink. He believes that he wouldn't have earned a �4.5million move to Glasgow from Easter Road had Mowbray not exorcised the demons that raged inside his head.

And now he has tipped the Englishman to ride to Celtic's rescue and achieve instant hero status by winning the SPL crown back from Rangers at the first attempt.

He said: “I'm always confident and I'm sure that under Tony we can win the title back next season. Yes, it will be hard because Rangers will fight all the way.

“But I'm really excited about the future for us now that Tony has the job. He will bring his own players in and he'll know what's needed to improve us as a team. He'll also handle the pressure that is involved in being an Old Firm manager because he knows what this club is all about.

“Let's not forget, it was Tony who started the huddle so he's already made his mark on the club and he knows what it means to wear the shirt and everything that goes with it. He's the man for the job all right and I can't wait for it all to get started.”

Brown insists, despite growing interest in him among a clutch of the English Premier League's top clubs and the decision of Gordon Strachan to stand down, he always fully intended to return to Celtic in time for the next campaign.

He said: “It wasn't a case of me thinking about leaving - I was always going to come back and be fully focused on getting the championship back.

“But to find out that Tony is going to be the manager? That's just the best news I could have hoped for. We have got ourselves a top, top manager and the rest of the boys can take it from me, they are going to love working with him too.”
