Ex-Rangers star lands cheeky dig on Celtic captain Scott Brown

Ex-Rangers star Neil McCann landed a cheeky dig on Celtic captain Scott Brown in a debate over the league title on BBC Sportsound [26/04/20].

The Celtic skipper challenged McCann to “take that Rangers strip off” and admit Celtic can’t be caught in first place and deserve the title.

But McCann quickly bit back at the outspoken 34-year-old, asking him if that is just like “the one that you used to wear”.

Brown has famously been derided throughout his career amid rumours he was a childhood Rangers fan before going on to captain and lead Celtic for the better part of a decade.

It’s something which is regularly used to goad the Celtic support and you can bet that McCann caught more than a few of them with his comments on the BBC Radio Scotland show.

They were made all the sweeter given that the tricky winger landed the dig whilst the Celtic captain was being so smug.

The debate rages on over the Scottish Premiership season with Brown trying to play up the idea that Celtic deserve the title if it is cancelled.

He even went so far as to suggest that the desperate grab for their ninth title in a row is the same achievement as their own team from the 60s or the Rangers side of the 90s.

McCann did eventually concede that it’s hard to argue against the suggestion that “Celtic were well on track to win the title”.

Neil McCann was praised by the Rangers support earlier this month as the winger’s heroics in the Scottish Cup Final of 2002 were screened by BBC Scotland.
