You really can’t make it up.
Livingston frontman Lyndon Dykes has accused Scott Brown of intentionally trying to hurt him during the bhoys 4-0 win at Celtic Park.
From kick-off on Saturday, Dykes was taking liberties with a few of the Celtic players – much like he did during the reverse fixture earlier this season. However, this time, Celtic weren’t rising to it, late elbows into the back and deliberate niggles to try and get a reaction early on proved to be a waste of time for the Livingston striker.
When Dykes did get his yellow card, anything he could do was nullified, he was marked out of the game and spent the second half chasing shadows.
He and Scott Brown had some battles over the piece during the game but to come out afterwards and accuse the Celtic captain of purposely trying to hurt him is deplorable.
“Most tackles were fine. The worst was Scott Brown on my ankle at the end.” He told Sunsport.
“I think he went in to do it on purpose. It’s the type of player he is and I had nothing against him.
“After the game I shook his hand. In the first half there was a 50-50 and I got him one then he got me one.
“It’s part of football. I just get on with it. But I think there were a couple of fouls on me which were given as fouls to them.”
Brown got on the scoresheet during the game and you could tell he was having a bit of back and forth with the Livi players. There was no malice in any of his challenges, and for Dykes to run to the media about it is pretty childish.
