Celtic captain Scott Brown came to Ibrox for one last dance but there was murder on the dancefloor as Rangers put an almighty dampener on his Parkhead career with a 4-1 victory in Glasgow.

The Celtic skipper has lorded over all and sundry at Ibrox in a career defined by tinpot moments against tinpot players and trophy after trophy with effectively no competition.

As soon as Rangers turned up the heat the bottom fell out of the Celtic captain and he’s been thoroughly found out this season.

Brown might be 35 now, but as the game passed him by it’s easy to contrast his bumbling, lost performance with that of counterpart midfielder Steven Davis, who is 36.

The Northern Irish captain is the same age and – in an argument which is undebatable – is lightyears ahead of the ex-Scotland skipper in both ability and class.

Brown’s made a career over lording it over sub-par Rangers sides but it’s the Gers who had the last laugh at his last dance as the midfielder toiled and the Ibrox side ran rampant.

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos – a victim of Brown’s brinkmanship in the past – nutmegged the Celtic captain before lashing it high above Scott Bain to make it 2-1. He looked terrified.

Hooked just by the hour, Brown was also goaded as he left the pitch by the Colombian who simulated tears coming down his face as Brown trudged off the pitch.

It was a most ungracious and fitting end to Brown’s Old Firm career and Rangers fans too couldn’t resist goading the Celtic captain as he tripped mid-tango in Govan:


Rangers trounced Old Firm rivals Celtic 4-1 courtesy of a Kemar Roofe double, a powerful Alfredo Morelos effort and a late goal by Jermain Defoe.

The result also came as one under-fire Rangers star managed to keep the shackles on a reported £30m Celtic man with a stellar performance in the clash.
