BROONY’S reaction the challenge my Sam Cosgrove has taken some heat off the challenge itself and the intention of the challenge.
It was a tackle built out of frustration – Cosgrove desperate to make his mark on the game chose Scott Brown as his target. Had the reckless lunge landed properly, it could have seriously injured Scott Brown.
An unlikely source took to social media explaining that Sam Cosgrove should receive further punishment and branded the tackle ‘an act of thuggery.
Former professional footballer Ned Zelic who had spells at Dortmund and 1860 München during his career was watching the game and couldn’t believe the challenge.
What a disgusting challenge from Aberdeen player Cosgrove on Scott Brown. Deserves a 10-match ban for that act of thuggery

Again, it’s easy to overlook the incident because Celtic won the game and Brown swaggered away from the challenge but Sam Cosgrove should maybe take a long look at himself and ask ‘What was I thinking’ – as debuts go, it was a shocker.
