It has been a long time coming but Charlie Nicholas admitted something we probably already knew but it was nice to get some verification – he is jealous of the Celtic captain.
Nicholas went on a tirade about Scott Brown’s actions during the game with absolutely no knowledge of how the player is treated on a weekly basis by his opposition and opposition fans.
Fun time Charlie slams Brown for his antics and talks about respect and why he should respect The Rangers players. Why? It’s a two-way street and Scott Brown has been subject to the vilest abuse over the years, a Gers fan entered the field two seasons ago in a bd to attack Brown; their players constantly mouth off about the Celtic captain then can’t back it up on the field. The one time they did win their players, their fans and even their social media account rubbed it in his face with the Captain taking it on the chin as Nicholas talks about.
There’s no respect towards our captain so why should he show any?
This is all highlighted now because unlike Scott, he didn’t and doesn’t react to the sort of goading that goes on during a game. Even when kicked, punched, elbowed he gets up, laughs and smiles – no classless reaction involved, and no retaliation other than winning.
Nicholas talks about a bygone era which is most certainly nothing to do with the game today.
At least he acknowledges he’s jealous of the Celtic Captain.
