Scottish sports journalist Graham Spiers has been speaking in the aftermath of Rangers’ defeat to Celtic at Parkhead. And for once, Gers fans will probably agree with him.
Spiers took to Twitter to condemn the behaviour of Celtic captain Scott Brown. Brown behaved with little class and he’s quite rightly being condemned for it.
Graham Spiers agrees, describing the Celtic captain as behaving like “an all-round tit”.
Have to say I wasn’t in the slightest bit impressed with Scott Brown’s antics today. Provoking, goading, laughing at defeated players, acting like the all-round tit. There was nothing classy about it at all. pic.twitter.com/84GFzoulXG

Scott Brown was at the centre of the match with Rangers and not for the right reasons. Celtic used to be able to roll us over on the park, now they can’t they resort to pretty underhand tactics to win the match.
Spiers is right – Brown was classless. If a Rangers player had behaved that way they’d be strung up. And probably berated by our own supporters.
Brown spent the entire match riling up the Rangers players and diving around the pitch. His behaviour led to Alfredo Morelos being sent off, and he was sent tumbling by a right hook by Ryan Kent.
And on second watching some might say Alfredo Morelos was even hard done by for his clash with the Celtic captain.
