Some of our rival supporters were left absolutely fizzing after Celtic captain Scott Brown reportedly wasn’t charged by the SFA for a flashpoint against Aberdeen.

The Daily Record reported last night that Brown could’ve been charged by the SFA Compliance Officer for an apparent elbow on Dons attacker Scott Wright.

However, the Scottish Sun has today stated that there was nothing on the footage that concerned the SFA chiefs, which means Brown will be able to face Aberdeen in this weekend’s Scottish Cup semi-final.

And it’s fair to say that this reported verdict has left supporters of our rival clubs in a bit of a rage. Here’s a look at some of the laughable reaction:


A nothing incident and the correct decision

The SFA, should this be the decision they’ve made, will have come to the correct conclusion on this one. The fact you would do well to even remember the incident shows how innocuous it was.

As for some of this reaction, isn’t it funny the differing standards? When Alfredo Morelos gets away with slapping Brown on the head he’s labeled as a hero by our rivals. Yet Brown barely touches Wright and they all have the pitchforks out demanding retrospective action.

The truth is, had Brown been banned then you could’ve expected a fiery response to the matter today from Neil Lennon. Not because his player is being banned, but because of the ridiculousness of the decision.

It always seems to be the way with our captain though. There’s quite obviously a rather distasteful and you could probably even say a disturbing obsession with hating him from our rivals. Perhaps that’s just what domination does for you.

Regardless of what you think of our captain, there is always immense pressure from rival fans to pull him up for absolutely anything. The reaction to this reported decision shows just that.

Some are trying to console themselves by saying that Brown playing is some sort of boost for Aberdeen too. Let’s see if that truly is the case come kick-off.

In other news, Neil Lennon was absolutely furious today as he launched a staunch defence of his players.
