Scott Brown puts his critics in their place as he has been slated over the past few months and being told he is past it, me personally i am thrilled he signed a new deal as he is a fantastic player and has a wealth of experience on and off the park.
Over the past 12 years Scott Brown has only moved higher and higher in rank and has helped Celtic break numerous records and still on track to break more as we are going for a Triple Treble and eight leagues in a row, Rangers need a reminder they played a very depleted Celtic in the last new firm and have only buried their chances of any silverware this season as Celtic have come back even stronger.
It puts a smile on my face when I’m written off. It just makes me go out and work harder to prove to everybody I can still do it. People walking in the streets told me they’d read in the paper that my legs had fallen off after the Rangers defeat.
I was like, ‘What – the second time?’ The semi-final defeat was three years ago and people were saying my legs had gone. I’m happy to take the blame for the last Rangers game. If they want to hit me with that I’m big enough and ugly enough to deal with it.
If it eases the pressure for the other lads, I’m willing to take it. I’m 33 now and if someone is going to write to me on Twitter saying I’m finished I’m really going to cry myself to sleep at night…
I don’t think I have to prove a point to anybody. For me, I’ve done well over my 12 years so far.
Having just signed a new two-year deal at the Hoops, Brown will have plenty of opportunities to right the wrongs from that day at Ibrox. There are no excuses to be made in that regard, everyone had a horror show at Ibrox.
