Brown content with current Celtic squad

Celtic captain Scott Brown believes the current title-winning squad is good enough to continue moving the club forward.

The Hoops secured the 2011/12 Premiership when they beat Kilmarnock 6-0 at Rugby Park on Saturday with manager Neil Lennon immediately looking to making some alterations to his playing group prior to Champions League qualification in late July.

But skipper Brown, with the exception of maybe two players, suggests that this current Celtic squad is the one that can go on and gain a spot in Europe's premier club competition before going on to achieve more success domestically.

"It would be great to have Maradona and Pele make a comeback," he said jokingly.

"Seriously, the team is pretty much perfect as it is and we proved it by winning the league by 18 points.

"That shows we don't need older, experienced pros. The lads are mature enough to understand this is a big club and although there is a lot of pressure on us to win every week, they want to be here and enjoy that. They want to win trophies.

"We didn't start the season as well as we might, have but as it progressed we became stronger and stronger.

"We understand each other's game and the gaffer has had a settled team."
