'You're right' – Rangers fans respond to John Hartson tweet about Scott Brown
Scott Brown proved his mettle when he took two tough challenges from Aberdeen players on Sunday before standing up and roaring his defiance to the Celtic fans.
A video of the incident went viral and was picked up by Celtic legend John Hartson.

Hartson said he loved it and that “Broony” is a tough bas****.
Celtic went on to win the game 2-0, restoring their nine point lead at the top of the table from Rangers.
Rangers had temporarily reduced the gap to six points on Saturday with a 2-0 win of their own.
There’s no love lost between the two bitter rivals but some Rangers fans couldn’t help but admire the actions of Brown and responded to Hartson’s tweet.
Others weren’t so complimentary though, with one saying that Brown is a bully who only picks on the smallest player on the pitch.
Here are the best reactions from Rangers fans who were forced to give praise to one of Celtic’s biggest performers.
I’m a rangers fan and I hate brown obviously, but must say this is quality! Wish all players had this attitude! Could anyone imagine Nani after this tackle? ????

Oh, he is very tough.
He reminds me of you John, you kick little guys in the face when they are on the ground. Brown generally looks for the smallest guy on the pitch and then tries to do him.

Very much doubt he could take one of you're kicks to the face when he's on the ground big bad John.
