NEIL LENNON has come out swinging when it comes to his Celtic captain and being asked about how Scott Brown will handle himself in the cauldron at Ibrox on Sunday.
Asked if he would be having words with Brown about how to conduct himself on the day, the Celtic manager was clear he didn’t even need to mention it to Scott. For the interim boss, Brown has never been the issue in these games and made mention of the fact Scott Brown seems to be obsessively targeted in these fixtures.
“It’s not my problem that they have a huge disciplinary problem and if it manifests itself again on Sunday then we will try to take advantage.” Lennon told the IrishPost.
“They did (target Scott Brown) and they did after the game as well.”
Neil Lennon’s biggest dig came when he declared he didn’t have to tell Scott Brown how to ‘manage himself’.
“Scott Brown’s a veteran of these games, he has been here 12 years he has played over 500 games. I don’t need to tell Scott Brown how to manage himself through a game of football, he does it very well and the bigger the game the more he enjoys it.
“Scott Brown is always important. It is a big game and he is a big game player. It is very easy to say Scott Brown will be playing on Sunday.”
Celtic will go to Ibrox as champions and will look for all three points after losing there under Brendan Rodgers in December.
Celtic have been flat lately and they will really need to up their game and intensity to make sure of the three points.
Weah is now out of the team for Sunday with Neil Lennon sending the American packing on Friday at Lennoxtown. More news on that matter will surely come to light sooner rather than later.
