Loic Damour spits his dummy out with Scott Brown comments
Hearts midfielder Loic Damour has launched a blistering attack on Scott Brown, saying that our captain can do whatever he wants on the pitch while the referee does nothing.
The Frenchman released the bizarre outburst after his side had been soundly beaten by Brown’s side at Tynecastle. The Celtic skipper was once again on top form as he dominated the midfield. However, Damour reckons referee Bobby Madden had a bit to do with that.
“I was very happy to get the 90 minutes against Celtic because that was my first 90 minutes since January,” he told the Edinburgh Evening News.
“I enjoyed the battle, especially with Brown, I think his name is. Apparently he is like the king of the league because he can do whatever he wants on the pitch and the referee never says anything.
“He is the referee on the pitch and that is seemingly normal here. I was very frustrated about that so I wanted to let him know we have a referee on the pitch and he is not the referee.
“He plays his game but he also plays like the referee so it is like we have no referee on the pitch. I’m starting to know this league now and I can see that when we play Celtic, ok, Brown is the referee.”
Damour has shown a lack of class with Brown comments
Damour’s comments certainly lack a fair deal of class. Make no mistake about it, he’s well aware of who Scott Brown is and will have studied him prior to the game. For the former Cardiff City man then to claim he doesn’t even know Brown’s name is a little bit of a low blow.
It’s unlikely to bother the skipper too much though. Brown has dealt with pretenders his full career. Many so called ‘midfield hardmen’ have tried to force themselves on him and few have succeeded with putting him off his game.
One thing he is correct about is that Scott Brown is the “king of the league”. That much was evident at Tynecastle last night and will continue to be the case until he hangs up his boots.
But Damour hasn’t helped himself for his next meeting with the Celtic skipper. Believe me, those comments won’t be forgotten.
