Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has pledged his future to the Scottish champions amid reports of interest from Portsmouth. The Scotland international has been linked with an £8million move to Fratton Park, with the south coast club keen to fill the void created by Lassana Diarra's departure to Real Madrid. But the 23-year-old midfielder claims he is happy at Celtic and not looking to leave Parkhead just 18 months after arriving from Hibernian. "I'm a Celtic player and I'm enjoying it just now," he told the Daily Record. "I want to keep that going. I'm enjoying winning games and looking forward to the future." Brown joined Celtic in May 2007 in a £4.4million deal and the former Scotland Under-21 international has already made over 75 first-team appearances in his short spell with the Hoops.
