Celtic captain Scott Brown delivered a sneering assessment of Rangers’ contribution to the League Cup semi-final at Hampden, claiming the Scottish champions’ goalkeeper, Craig Gordon, only touched the ball to spare himself from boredom.
Rangers did not manage a single effort on target during the match and Brown was jubilant at the manner of his team’s 2-0 victory – with Brown’s performance especially outstanding.
I felt we were in control of the game from start to finish. Rangers didn’t bother Craigy at all.
He came out and caught a few crosses just because he was getting bored, to be perfectly honest.
Brown was also critical of the Hampden surface and believes this was more suited to Rangers style of play as opposed to Celtic’s.
He’s gone through 90 minutes and not made a serious save. That tells you how much we dominated it, especially on that pitch which couldn’t have worked out more for Rangers than it did for us.
