Former Celtic stars left amused by Scott Brown's hilarious antics

Oh, Scott Brown; even after leaving Celtic last summer, you still never fail to deliver.

Former Hoops stars were left in stitches last night as Broony, now at Aberdeen, wound up Rangers and took a point off Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side. Neil Lennon, live on Sky Sports News, had to put on his most diplomatic voice after Brown waved Ryan Kent off the pitch.

Meanwhile, John Hartson and Ramon Vega took to Twitter to express their fondness for the Celtic icon. Brown was pivotal as Aberdeen drew with Rangers last night, reducing the gap at the top to 4 points. In typical Broony fashion, he’s left Rangers supporters absolutely raging.

Lennon was first to react, saying on Sky Sports News: “He’ll be enjoying this and smelling a bit of blood.

“You can see why the Celtic fans love him. Obviously a bit of history there, not just with Ryan Kent, but with a lot of players. Scotty’s very good at the noise-up.

“He’ll be loving it, revelling in it. He has done for the last 10-15 years.”

John Hartson, Lennon’s former team-mate, went for a more direct approach, tweeting:

Meanwhile Ramon Vega, who spent a short spell with Celtic, continues to tweet about the club and Scottish football in general.

The former Switzerland man is clearly a big fan of Broony’s, who by his presence alone, seems to unsettle Rangers. Vega was, much like Hartson, straight to the point in his assessment of Brown’s display.

He said:

Clearly, Scott Brown is still more than adept at getting under the skin of the opposition, especially when it’s Rangers. Brown scored an excellent goal at Ibrox in the last encounter, even mocking Alfredo Morelos’ goal celebration in the process.

The ex-Celtic skipper has endured an up-and-down season with Aberdeen, as a key part of Stephen Glass’ coaching team and squad.

This, undoubtedly, was one of the more enjoyable games he’s had since joining the Dons.

Former stars, Hoops supporters; everyone of a Celtic persuasion was enjoying the antics of Scott Brown last night

The best part about all this is that it’s not as if Broony was even doing all that much. It takes so little for him to wind Rangers players up.

Perhaps because he reminds them of the dominance Celtic had under his captaincy for so long.

With little gestures, he essentially writes the headlines for tomorrow. The phrase “rent free” is used a lot, perhaps too often, but Broony really does live rent free in the minds of Rangers players and supporters. It’s very strange but we’re not complaining.

For his side, it’s an important point. Glass’ Aberdeen have been impressive in their outings against Rangers, and have put up a decent battle for Ange Postecoglou and Celtic. Beating teams around them in the table, though, has been more of an issue this season.

However the league campaign turns out, though, Scott Brown has already given Aberdeen supporters a plethora of moments to enjoy since becoming a Dons player.

And suffice it to say, he’s still giving us laughs even after departing Celtic.

Good job, Broony.
