When you navigate past the murky waters of the Scottish football media who will have you believe Scott Brown was the villain of the day on Sunday, it’s refreshing to see people removed from the odious cesspit where some of our ‘award winning’ writers work to actually praise Scott Brown for his Derby display.
Sky Sports ‘Ref Watch’ analysed the big flashpoints yesterday as Celtic beat The Rangers 2-1 in front of a sold out Celtic Park.
While we hear bitching, moaning and yes, a little bit of crying over big bad Scott Brown, it was clear to Dermott Gallagher and Mario Melchiot that Brown had played a blinder and his experience and calmness not to react got under the skin of his opponents.

Morelos lashed out at Brown after the Celtic captain gave him the lightest of brushes on his heels, little did Brown know the reaction it would garner from the unhinged striker. Red card and he was off.
Kent then loses the rag with Brown on the centre circle and pushes him in the face with Brown going to ground, another flashpoint which should’ve been red for the Liverpool loan star.
Then drawing Andy Halliday in at the end of the game when the Ibrox player was enraged with the result.
It was not a good day for the Ibrox side who would have been told before the match not to let Brown wind them up.
