Divisive? The Scott Brown Debate

For Celtic fans, Scott Brown gets their wholehearted backing. But Rangers' players certainly don't warm to him.

That was on full display in the weekend's Old Firm derby. Red card magnet Alfredo Morelos got himself sent off (again) and Ryan Kent struck Brown with a southpaw which went initially unpunished.

The Celtic skipper clearly saw the funny side during after the match after expertly trolling his Rangers counterparts.


However, Brown's role has divided opinions among some observers. Some feel Brown provoked those situations, while others point out that provocation need not automatically lead to the type of retaliation Rangers' players indulged in.

That debate was carried over into this week's Team 33. Enda Coll and Jonathan Higgins have differing views on Brown's behaviour. And they were also divided on the subject of whether the Celtic captain is an average footballer or not.

You can listen to the full debate right below, hereor on iTunes.
