'They don't even hide their bias': Rangers fans react on Twitter as Brown ban overturned

By Matt Farr

Celtic captain Scott Brown will be able to feature against Rangers on Saturday after having his ban overturned – but Rangers fans on Twitter are furious.

The club announced on their official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon that the 31-year-old midfielder had been given the green light to face Rangers at Ibrox at the weekend.

The Scottish Football Association had also revealed on their official website that Brown’s red card, shown for a lunge on Liam Boyce during the 2-2 draw with Ross County on April 16, had been reduced to a caution.

Celtic had appealed the decision made by referee Don Robertson on the grounds of wrongful dismissal, and the decision was overturned following a hearing on Thursday.

However, Rangers fans were left furious at the decision to overturn Brown’s red card, insisting that the challenge was deserving of a red card.

The decision to instead hand Brown a caution for his challenge does however, mean that he will miss the upcoming games with St Johnstone and Aberdeen through suspension, having picked up the maximum number of bookings.

Rangers head into Saturday’s tie with Celtic at Ibrox looking to avenge their 2-0 defeat to their rivals in the Scottish Cup Final a week ago.
