FORMER Ibrox man Billy Dodd’s has taken an astonishing stance on the Scott Brown incident at the weekend and insisted Brendan Rodgers was out of order for trying to ‘influence’ the disciplinary department.
Scott Brown was stamped on in a very deliberate manner by Davies, but according to Billy the player should receive no further punishment other than the automatic ban and
“Some of the stuff from Brendan Rodgers after the game was uncalled for.
“He mentioned how Jozo Simunovic got a two-game ban for his elbow in the Rangers game, and suggested Davies’ punishment should be worse.
“For me, he was trying to influence the disciplinary department with his comments, and that didn’t sit well with me.
“I think back to a horrendous challenge Brown made on Liam Boyce last season, when Rodgers came out after the game and said he didn’t see it.
“Well, I saw the scrape marks from Boycie’s knee down to his ankle in the dressing room, and it wasn’t pretty.”
The EBT recipient then goes on to tell us that it was a ‘crazy’ challenge by the Ross County captain but still seemed upset with the Celtic manager defending his player who had just been stamped on.
“It was a crazy challenge from Davies and I’m not defending it.
“I just don’t think Rodgers should have been trying to influence the punishment.”
