Celtic midfielder Scott Brown is named as the captain of the Scottish national team by manager Gordon Strachan.

Gordon Strachan has confirmed that Scott Brown will captain the Scottish national team against Estonia tomorrow evening.

A number of players had been linked with the responsibility, including Gary Caldwell and Kenny Miller.

However, Strachan has revealed that a number of factors have resulted in him handing the role to Celtic midfielder Brown.

"He knows what it is like to be a captain and a captain with pressure," Strachan told reporters. "That made him a favourite. He is in fine form as well. If you put that together, that has made him the captain for tomorrow."

The match will be Strachan's first in charge of his country.
