Celtic skipper Scott Brown has revealed that Ross County’s Andrew Davies has not apologised to him following his horror stamp on the Hoops captain.
Davies was deservedly shown a red card for the dreadful challenge, which Brown was fortunate to avoid serious injury in.
There has been plenty of media outcry about the challenge, and Brown has added to this with his revelation that Davies hasn’t said anything to him following the flashpoint incident.
“You can see on his face, he’s just walked off. Being a captain of a team in a relegation battle, who has players looking up to him, to do that is not what Ross County need,” Brown said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“Did he apologise? No. Nothing. That would be the manly thing to do.”
Brown, who has been a mainstay of the Hoops team this season with 48 appearances, is set to return to action for the Hoops on Sunday when they take on Hamilton aiming for three points which will take them one step closer to a seventh consecutive league title.
Football Insider verdict
It is unlike Brown to be so angry off the park, he is usually a jovial presence, but you can tell that the incident has really annoyed him, and no wonder, it really was a dreadful challenge by Davies, and the lack of an apology will be seen by the Hoops skipper as an insult. Brown has had a very eventful season, even by his standards, and it will be interesting to see how the incident affects his form for the rest of the season. He was quite subdued in the midweek draw against Dundee, fans will be hoping that performance isn’t a sign of things to come in the weeks ahead as the Hoops aim to clinch a second successive domestic treble.
