Celtic midfielder Scott Brown could face Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side in next month’s Old Firm derby at Ibrox, after his disciplinary hearing was moved forward at the Parkhead club’s request, as reported by The Daily Record.
The paper say that Brown’s case will now be heard on April 26th, having originally been penned in for May 2nd.
The former Scotland international has been cited for “failing to act in the best interests of Scottish football” after celebrating in front of and gesturing towards the travelling Rangers support during a recent match at Celtic Park.
The move means he Hoops captain will now have to be given a hefty three match ban if he is to miss the match at Ibrox, rather than two had the original date been kept.
It’s just the latest decision from the Scottish FA that has gone against us this season, with fans growing increasingly tired of the apparently random decision making at Hampden.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the player receives no action against him at all!
