Celtic Issue Strong Response to SFA Charging Scott Brown For Gesturing to Rangers Fans

Celtic have issued a strong response to the SFA charging Scott Brown for his gesture towards Rangers fans at the end of Sunday’s game.

The Hoops captain was at the centre of almost all the controversy from the match at Celtic Park.

He was elbowed by Alfredo Morelos, pushed by Ryan Kent and then started a scuffle between both sets of players after doing ‘The Broony’ in front of the visiting supporters at full-time.

The SFA issued Kent with a Notice of Complaint yesterday as his incident didn’t lead to any punishment at the time.

And today Brown and Steven Gerrard have followed – with the Rangers manager being cited for something he said to referee Bobby Madden.

The Celtic skipper allegedly breached disciplinary rule 77, which states that a player must ‘act in the best interests of Association Football’.

Celtic have since responded and confirmed they’ll fight it:

Brown would be facing a one-game suspension from the incident and would have missed out against Livingston on Saturday.

But Celtic fighting the citation means it will now go to a hearing and it’s not been confirmed when that will take place.

For Celtic’s sake, they’ll want it sorted out before the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen a week on Sunday.
