The Scottish FA have let down Celtic skipper Scott Brown with their shocking decision to hand Ross County’s Andrew Davies just a two match ban for his awful challenge on the Hoops skipper.

Brown has been a mainstay of Scottish football for years – making 46 appearances already this season – and was until very recently the captain of Scotland, and he has been let down by the SFA who have not given Davies a far harsher punishment for his stamp on the 32-year-old.

Brown has been a marked man this season, as he has already been the victim of a dreadful challenge by Aberdeen’s Sam Cosgrove, which really should have lead to a lengthy ban for the Dons man.

Brown might not be liked much amongst opposition fans for his style of play, and the attitude he can display on the pitch at times, but that doesn’t give opposition players the right to get stuck into him.

A severe ban on Davies would have served as a deterrent, and would have ensured that pre-meditated challenges like the stamp on the Hoops skipper are cut out of the game.

But by only handing Davies a two-match ban, the SFA are running the risk of allowing Brown to once again be the victim of yet another poor challenge.
