'I felt something sharp coming towards my head' - Scott Brown reveals details of Celtic bust-up v St Johnstone
By John Reid
Celtic captain Scott Brown has revealed details of his weekend bust-up with St Johnstone’s Paul Paton.
Brown and Paton seemed to have a running feud during the game, which culminated in an elbow being thrown by Paton towards Brown.
The St Johnstone man was given a yellow card by referee Bobby Madden, who many felt should have sent the player off.
Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Brown admitted that the incident hadn’t taken the gloss off of Celtic’s 4-0 win.
He said “I didn’t know what happened – I felt something sharp coming towards my head.

“It was fine. It is part of football – he wants to bully me, I want to bully him and you just want to get on top and play football. But I think as a team we showed our quality over the piece and for that is always what is going to be the most important thing.”
Celtic set a new unbeaten British record of 63 games without defeat in the victory over St Johnstone, and will be looking to extend the record after the international break in the game against Ross County.
Brown will next be in action for Scotland in this week’s friendly match against the Netherlands at Pittodrie, he is expected to captain the side in interim manager Malky Mackay’s first game in charge of the national team.
