Rangers fans react on Twitter as Celtic star is named in Scotland squad
By Will Butcher
Rangers fans are not happy on Twitter after Celtic captain Scott Brown was recalled to the Scotland side to face England.
Brown, 31, is set to return to international duty less than 3 months after stating that he would retire to ease the pressures on his body as he enters his thirties.
However, the Scottish Football Association revealed on their official Twitter account that Brown has been selected by Scotland boss Gordon Strachan to face England on November 2011 in Group F of the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Brown has been selected alongside three other Celtic stars, while Strachan has picked just one Rangers star in captain Lee Wallace.
Rangers fans have reacted with disgust on Twitter, as they believe Brown is picking and choosing the games he wants to represent Scotland in.

The former Hibernian star is expected to feature in his recognised midfield role, after missing games against Malta, Lithuania and Slovakia.
Brown has 50 Scotland caps to his name, as well as finding the net in a dark blue shirt four times.
