SCOTT BROWN has broken his silence on that horrible day at Ibrox at the end of last year when a patched up Celtic side limped into the game and really didn’t get going in a match they’ve dominated in recent history.
Celtic had no recognised striker, three of their midfielders out and Callum McGregor being played as a left back. Along with that two defenders limped off during the first half of the game leaving the managers with very few options to change the game later on. It was the perfect storm and The Rangers won the game.
Speaking about that day, Scott Brown was asked by CelticTV how the bhoys are feeling about Sunday and how the last game affected them.
“It will always hurt.
“I think we went on a record-breaking run against them as well, 12 games undefeated against them.
“It was great for us to go on that run but it was always going to end eventually and just the way it ended we didn’t play that well at Ibrox and we know that ourselves.
“But we bounced back, we came back from Dubai and had a good wee mini pre-season under Brendan and the lads and it spurred us on for the last half of the season.”
Celtic have not lost a domestic game since Ibrox, which is a huge achievement given the injuries and managerial upheaval in recent months.
It’s up to the bhoys to get their own back come Sunday.
