Video: Brendan Rodgers Questions Why Harry Cochrane Was Even Playing Against Celtic

Following Craig Levein’s thinly-veiled dig at Celtic skipper Scott Brown, Brendan Rodgers has questioned Levein’s decision to play Harry Cochrane against the “best team in Scotland”.

Brown and Cochrane were involved in a collision that left the Jambos youngster in a heap, before being substituted in the 3-1 defeat at Celtic Park.

Levein reacted to the altercation by claiming Scottish football officials should look to give more players protection against Brown.

Not that Rodgers is entertaining the former Scotland boss’ comments, instead, Rodgers questioned why a player as young and inexperienced as Cochrane was even on the pitch against such a strong Celtic side:

 

 

Levein had implied that Brown went out with the intention of hurting Cochrane, especially after the 16-year-old enjoyed a dominant performance when Hearts broke Celtic’s unbeaten record back in December.

Meanwhile, Cochrane had to be sent to hospital to be evaluated on a suspected neck injury.

We doubt this will be the last you hear about Cochrane vs Brown!
