Scott Brown Clears Up Liking Tweet Criticising Neil Lennon.. Says He Should Be Blamed For Cluj Defeat

Scott Brown has cleared up liking a tweet criticising Neil Lennon in the aftermath of Celtic‘s shock Champions League exit at the hands of CFR Cluj.

The Hoops captain played a part in his side losing 4-3 to the Romanians last night, giving away a penalty at 2-1 which the visitors scored.

It was a very disappointing night for Celtic and means they’ll most likely have to settle for Europa League football this season – although they still have to navigate their way past a tricky opponent in either AIK or Sherrif Tiraspol in the final qualifier before the group stages of that competition.

There was a strong reaction from many Celtic fans on social media following the result.

And some noticed captain Brown liking a tweet from a fan who was very critical of Lennon:

It was noticed last night that Brown had liked that tweet – and screengrabs of it began to circulate social media:

Brown was quick to clarify why he’d liked the tweet – and explained it simply as a mistake.

He took to Twitter to write:

Brown has suffered disappointing defeats before in his Celtic career and has never been one to publicly criticise the team or manager so it’s understandable that it’s simply a mistake.
