Celtic captain Scott Brown has taken a dig at Hearts on social media after the Hoops won 3-1 at Tynecastle on Sunday afternoon.

Brown, speaking on his personal Instagram account, took aim at the Tynecastle pitch, describing it as the “longest grassed and a driest pitch” he has ever played on, but that wasn’t enough to stop the Hoops getting revenge for their 4-0 loss at Tynecastle earlier in the season.

“What a great performance on the longest grassed and a driest pitch I have ever played on. But tops off a great week and we keep on goin'” the Hoops captain opined, in his usual witty style.

Brown had an interesting day at Tynecastle, as he was the victim of a dreadful challenge by Steven Naismith, which the referee missed, but which incensed Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers.

Football Insider verdict

There is never a dull moment when ‘Broony’ is around, and that was the case at Tynecastle, as the Hoops won after a bruising encounter against Hearts. The Hoops captain might have been involved in a running battle with Naismith, but that didn’t prevent the Hoops from winning in style. More interesting was Brown’s comments on the pitch, which forced the Hoops to change their style of play, and concentrate more on the long ball, which ended up suiting the Hoops on the day, as Tom Rogic’s sublime pass set up Moussa Dembele for the Hoops’ second goal. Brown lead by example as usual, and the Hoops can now look forward to the Scottish Cup Final on the back of a good win against Hearts, and Brown will no doubt be one of the most important players at Hampden Park for the Bhoys, as they look to win what would be a historic second consecutive treble.
