Image for Celtic: Fans fume at Scott Brown

Many Celtic fans have been fuming at the performance of Scott Brown following the club’s 3-2 win over Livingston on Saturday.

The Hoops managed to beat Livingston by a 3-2 scoreline on Saturday. They had gone behind in the 16th minute of the game, but goals from Callum McGregor, Ryan Christie and Albian Ajeti gave them a 3-1 lead. Julien Serrano’s strike proved to be a consolation, as Neil Lennon’s men went to the top of the table on a temporary basis, with Rangers’ 2-2 draw at Hibernian on Sunday seeing them climb back to the summit of the Premiership.

Which player played the highest number of minutes in all competitions for Celtic in the 2019/20 season?

Despite the win, some Celtic fans weren’t impressed with the performance of Brown, who had started in the midfield of the club’s 3-5-2 shape. Fans took to Twitter and slammed Brown for his performance.

Should Neil Lennon drop Scott Brown?





Brown has been a regular for the Bhoys this season and has made nine appearances in all competitions. In the Premiership, he has played seven times for the Bhoys. Brown has played the second-highest number of minutes in all competitions for the Hoops in the current campaign.

Some other Celtic fans also had criticism for Brown and his performance at Parkhead on Saturday.

Some of these Celtic fans believe that Brown should not be playing as much as he is and he didn’t have a good game on Saturday.

Brown picked up a rating of 6.46 in the game and seven players picked up worse ratings than him on the day. Brown won the joint second-highest number of tackles in the game (one) but didn’t make a single interception for the Bhoys. He took a single shot on goal and completed a single dribble as well (as per WhoScored).

So it wasn’t quite an impressive performance from Brown. Considering that he has played the second-highest number of minutes in all competitions this season, perhaps he needs a bit of rest and that might help him get back to his best.
