The Chilly Jockos seem to have an obsession in linking Scott Brown with a move to St James' Park.
Yes (as reported) Newcastle United had representatives at Celtic Park to take in the club’s defeat to Atletico Madrid, but it was NOT to look at Scott Brown.
The Daily Record continue with the tired old headlines "Brown is in their sights", but the link with the player was over a year ago when Chris Hughton was the Newcastle manager.
The Celtic midfielder made a return from injury in the Europa League match, playing the last 15 minutes as a substitute for Anthony Stokes.
The Daily Record: "Brown is free to talk to other clubs over a possible Bosman move and has previously attracted interest from the English Premier League side."
Newcastle’s reserve coach Willie Donachie took in the game, but it was look at the progress of on-loan goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
