We should get a doctor to see him - Strachan delivers verdict on Celtic midfielder
By Abigail Withey
Scotland manager Gordon Strachan believes that nothing seems to faze Celtic captain Scott Brown.
The 32-year-old most recently featured against Rangers at Ibrox for the first Old Firm clash of the season and played brilliantly for the Hoops during their 2-0 win over their rivals.
The central midfielder not only went head-to-head with his opponents on the pitch, but also got riled up on the sidelines with Gers boss Pedro Caixinha during the showdown, but Strachan has revealed that he strangely shows little expression.
“Scott has no reaction to whatever you say to him, I remember speaking to Garry Pendry (his assistant manager at Celtic) one day and saying: ‘I think we should get a doctor to see him’,” the Scotland boss explained, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times.
“He just kept staring at me!

“Doesn’t matter if you were calling him the best player in the world or the worst player in the world his expression would stay the same.
“It’s a bit off-putting at times.”
Strachan has managed Brown on more than one occasion, as the pair worked together at both Celtic and the international side.
The current Scotland boss succeeded Martin O’Neill as the Hoops boss back in 2005 and left four years later in 2009.
The Bhoys captain was recruited under Strachan in 2007 and has since spent a decade at the club where he has made 431 appearances across all competitions, scored 37 goals and provided 56 assists throughout that time.
Brown will need to remain unfazed throughout the season in order to keep up the strong mentality to lead his side to securing another domestic treble.
