Scott Brown’s recent social activity is asking for trouble, even if the Celtic skipper made an honest mistake.

Hoops fans were left fuming as their side bowed out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening, following a shock 4-3 defeat at home to CFR Cluj.

It meant Celtic lost the tie 5-4 on aggregate over the two legs, dumping them into a Europa League play-off.

After the game, Brown ‘liked’ a Twitter post criticising Neil Lennon, as reported by the Daily Record, but swiftly defended himself soon after, claiming it was a genuine accident:

Needless to say, some Celtic fans weren’t impressed with both his behaviour and his performance, but others stuck up for him.

Whether or not Brown liking the Tweet was a genuine error, going on social media after such a damaging defeat is always going to be risky.

The most pressing matter regarding the midfielder was his performance, however, with a needless handball gifting Cluj a penalty and his all-round display lacking influence.

One thing that can never be denied is Brown’s level of fight, though, and he gave his all as always in a losing cause.

But at 34, he is past his best, with Tuesday’s loss highlighting his increasing number of shortcomings.

Is Brown still good enough to start for Celtic?

Yes

No
