Celtic manager and Rangers manager

Alan Hutton says that Celtic captain Scott Brown was let down by his teammates in the club’s 2-1 defeat to Rangers on Sunday.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Gers defender says that the Hoops mainstay looked to be the only one of Neil Lennon’s players up for the fight at Parkhead.

Odsonne Edouard’s deflected goal was not enough to prevent defeat for the Bhoys, Ryan Kent and Nikola Katic scoring to secure victory for the Light Blues at the home of their fiercest rivals.

Hutton says that he was not impressed with what he saw from the majority of the home side on Sunday, naming Brown as the only Celtic player who can hold his head up high.

Hutton told Football Insider: “I think it was a very subdued performance from the whole team, if I’m honest.

“The one who looked the most up for it for me was Scott Brown, he was trying to rally the troops if you like and wasn’t really getting anything back.

“Scott Brown tried to give his all but apart from that I thought it was a poor Celtic performance.”

Brown played the full 90 minutes against Steven Gerrard’s men, picking up a booking in the 38th minute.

He has already featured 36 times across all competitions for the Hoops this season, missing out against CFR Cluj through suspension and sitting out the Scottish League Cup win over Dunfermline.
