Many Celtic fans have been discussing the latest views about an incident from their recent win over Kilmarnock in the Premiership.
In Celtic’s recent 4-0 win over Kilmarnock, Brown was involved in a flashpoint when he caught Aaron Tshibola with an elbow. He ended up staying on the pitch despite his actions.
The Daily Record recently discussed this incident, saying that it wasn’t a red card largely because Brown was looking elsewhere and that he also offered an apology.
Did Scott Brown deserve a red card against Kilmarnock?
A tweet about this call was relayed on Twitter, as many Hoops supporters made their views clear about the incident.
What did Celtic fans make of this tweet about the Brown incident?
“What’s the issue here. Replays showed there was nothing wrong with this.“
“If Sevco want to talk ‘consistency’ then ask why Scott Brown gets sent off for a blatant elbow, but Morelos was allowed to stay on the park after a blatant forearm smash against Utd. Where is the consistency there.“
“So the ref called everything right apart from 3rd goal, hardly need to discuss consistency.”
This comes after Rangers boss Steven Gerrard had called for consistency in the decision-making process in the Premiership after Alfredo Morelos was banned for three games after his stamp on Hibernian player Ryan Porteous (as per BBC Sport).
Brown scored a goal for the Bhoys against Kilmarnock on Tuesday evening and it was his first goal of the current campaign. Some other Celtic fans also made their views clear about the Daily Record’s view on Brown’s elbow.
“There’s nuffin in that.”
“The daily ranger trying to influence refs who are already in their pockets and when fans are allowed back in their stands.”
So the decision to keep him on the pitch arguably had an impact on the result as Celtic ran away with the points.
