Celtic have announced that Scott Brown and Jozo Simunovic have signed new contracts with the club.

Club captain Scott Brown has agreed a new deal that will take him through until 2019.

The 32-year old joined Celtic in 2007 and has won 13 major honours with the club. Brown has picked up seven League winner's medals, three Scottish Cups and three League Cups in his time in Glasgow.

Simunovic signed for Celtic from Dinamo Zagreb in 2015 but the centre-back saw his first season disrupted by injury.

The Bosnian looked to have been on his way out of the club when he travelled to Turin to finalise a move to Torino in the summer only to see the deal collapse at the last minute.

He subsequently forced his way in to Brendan Rodgers' first team and went on to become a key player as the team went through an entire domestic season without defeat.

Rodgers said he was delighted to be tying down two more key players on extended deals.

"I am delighted for both," he said. "Scott has been a great captain here over many years and certainly in the period I have been here, he has consistently played at a very high level. 

"We were talking towards the end of last season and it was a case of just getting the Champions League qualification out of the way and hoping to get something agreed. 

"So I am absolutely delighted because he is a very important figure for us on and off the field and I have been delighted at his performance level and how tactically he has been playing the game. 

"Jozo is a young player that, obviously there was a focus on his injury past, but this is a great arena for him to play and he is in an environment where he needs that development and once he is fit and trains and plays consistently he is an outstanding talent. 

"So it is great news for our squad because we are trying to build and create something here. 

"A lot of our players now are tying into longer deals, which is great. 

 "It is a really exciting period and we have one or two others that we will look at to try to ensure the squad remains as stable as possible whilst looking to progress at the same time."
