Loads of Celtic fans have been reacting to a truly bizarre rant on the state of Scottish football, as Adrian Durham called on Scott Brown to grow up and become a role model.
The Old Firm always chucks out loads of talking points, but the debate surrounding Brown’s post-match celebrations seems like it will rage on forever.
The Bhoys won 2-1 on Sunday courtesy of goals from Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest either side of a Ryan Kent strike, and two Gers were sent off for incidents involving Brown, while a third is set to face retrospective action.
The controversial Bhoys skipper is absolutely always at the centre of the conversation, and he didn’t exactly help matters by celebrating in front of the Rangers fans and sharing fishing emojis on Instagram – to indicate that he had baited the Gers faithful successfully.
And Durham, who himself makes a living out of making controversial statements for TalkSPORT, has called on the Hoops ace to clean up his act and lead the quest for change in Scottish football.
Son Heung-min to Arsenal? Surely not! Bhav explains why the Spurs man should make the unthinkable switch in the video above…
“In fact, this is my personal plea to Scott Brown,” he told TalkSPORT.
“You’re arguably the most influential footballer in Scotland right now Scott. Why not use your position to impact the game positively? Time to put the clown costume away for good.
“Time to grow up, time for you Scott Brown to be a real man and send out messages to fans promoting peace, rejecting sectarianism, rejecting violence and hate.
“Don’t just pay lip service to it and read out statements prepared by the Celtic press officer or wear a t-shirt in the warm-up. Use your position as a force of good and let that be your legacy to the game.
“Scott Brown, you’re 33 years old and you’re known as an antagonist. Time to set the right example, be a true role model.
“You’ve the chance now to go down in history Scott Brown as the man who forced Scottish football to change and change for the better.
“It’s up to him. It’s up to you Scott Brown.”
Apart from setting the world record for saying “Scott Brown” as many times as possible in a short space of time, Durham does raise some valid points.
However, to suggest that Brown can fix all these issues like some kind of superhero is slightly bizarre, and loads of Celtic fans have been slamming the pundit for his verdict.
Have a look at the Twitter reactions down below, look away now Adrian…
I agree, why not get Brown to negotiate a new Brexit deal too. While he’s at it maybe get north and South Korea talking. On the way home swing past Palestine..
