'That's how you react' - Chelsea coach delivers verdict on Celtic skipper Scott Brown
Celtic took maximum points at Aberdeen on Sunday in the Scottish Premier League with a 2-0 win against Aberdeen.
It was a hard-fought display from Brendan Rodgers’ side in a match which saw a return to goalscoring form from Moussa Dembele while Kieran Tierney also registered.
Scott Brown was central to the victory and was also at the heart of an incident involving the Dons debutant Sam Cosgrove who flew in at the Hoops captain late in the second half and was given his marching orders as a result.
However, unperturbed by the tackle, the midfielder got up, shrugged off the attempt and laughed.
It was a reaction that saw social media go into meltdown and Chelsea coach Jody Morris tweeted his response to the challenge.
That’s how you react to a scandalous challenge…????????????Scott Brown

Brendan Rodgers though was not happy with the Aberdeen players involved in the incident and after the match he his opinion on the challenge.
As quoted in the Scottish Sun, Rodgers said: “It’s not a great challenge from the boy who got sent off. It was naughty.
“Logan didn’t set the best example for young players when he twice tried to smash the ball at the player on the floor. Fortunately for Scott, he didn’t hurt him.
The win also reinstated their advantage over Rangers in the race for the SPL title to nine points, after their rivals had cut it to six 24 hours earlier.
