'Well overrated', 'Nobody cares' - Rangers fans react to Celtic ace announcement
Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has announced the end of his international career on Monday and Rangers fans are delighted to hear the news.
The 32-year-old made 55 appearances for his country and scored four goals for the national side and his decision to end his Scotland career follows Alex McLeish’s appointment to the managerial hot-seat.
Brown has been integral to the Hoops successes on the field since arriving at Celtic Park, during a time where the Gers have been in the footballing wilderness.
As it stands, nine points separates the two Glaswegian giants, and there is a growing feeling that the Gers are ready to compete with Brendan Rodgers’s side once more.
And after hearing Brown’s announcement, fans of the Light Blues took to social media in their throngs to give their opinion on his retirement.
One fan said the midfielder’s decision was down to the fact that he wouldn’t get picked under McLeish – a former Rangers boss, while another said a simple, ‘Again,’ referring to the fact that this is the second occasion that the player has severed ties with the national set-up.
Here is what the Rangers faithful had to say about the Celtic player calling time on his Scotland career:

Is that because McLeish won't let him pick n choose the games he wants ta play in?
