Scott Brown wasn’t too pleased when asked for his thoughts on Rangers potentially winning their 55th league title at Celtic Park next month.
Rangers face Livingston, St Mirren and Celtic in their next three matches, needing seven points to confirm themselves as Scottish Premiership champions.
However, that is only if Celtic don’t drop points in their next two matches against Aberdeen and Dundee United – which is very possible.
After the Bhoys lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Ross County on Sunday, captain Brown was asked to share his thoughts on Rangers winning the league at Parkhead.
He was quoted by Radio Clyde as saying: “We take it one game at a time. We look forward to playing next week and have got to focus on that game and make sure we are ready.
“The gaffer has got to make sure he has got the best team out there possible and we have got to make sure we get a result and get back to winning ways as quickly as possible.
“That’s what this club is all about and this season has not been great for us to be perfectly honest and that performance probably does sum up our season. Played not too bad throughout the 90 minutes and lose 1-0.”
According to Radio Clyde, Brown “quickly ended the interview as soon as the prospect of Rangers winning the title at Celtic Park was mentioned”.
You love to see it
This is hilarious.
For all those years where Brown and Celtic were on top, winning titles without any competition and making it seem as though they were world-beaters. Now, Rangers are about to beat them to the title and they cannot stand it.
Whether Brown likes it or not. Rangers will either be champions when they visit Celtic Park next month, or they will win the title there.
It’s up to you Broonie, do you want to welcome the Gers to Parkhead with a guard of honour? Or do you want to fail to beat them on the pitch and see ’10-in-a-row’ go completely down the drain.
Celtic’s next two matches against Aberdeen and Dundee United aren’t easy so there’s every chance the Hoops will welcome Steven Gerrard’s men with a guard of honour.
But we’d love to see it happen on the pitch.
We don’t say this very often but if both Old Firm teams win their next two matches, that would be the best outcome for the Gers.
There’ll be another chance for a guard of honour.
