Lennon watched from the sidelines as Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest scored either side of half-time to ensure a 2-1 victory for the Hoops – and a 13-point lead at the top of the Premiership.
But that doesn’t even begin to tell the entire story of an ill-tempered affair, with Alfredo Morelos and Andy Halliday both receiving red cards after clashing with Brown.
After the dust had settled, Lennon met with the assembled media to give his thoughts on the skirmishes, and he said via the Daily Record: “I’m not happy with the treatment of Scott Brown today.
“He has been elbowed and then punched in the face by another player and Rangers should have been down to nine men.
“Ryan Kent, after he scored the second goal has either slapped him in the face or punched him in the face and it’s just unacceptable.
“We should be talking about a great game of football where two teams went hard at it.
“I’m sure it will all come out in the wash and I’m sorry I can’t comment on it as I was straight up the tunnel for a breather.
“I’ll digest that over the next couple of days and maybe have something for you Tuesday or Wednesday.”
What do you make of Lennon’s comments, and is he correct to stick up for his captain?
And was Brown lucky to escape any serious punishment during today’s fiery contest?
