Sun 21 March 2021 | 16:44

Celtic captain Scott Brown embraced the Gers midfielder Glen Kamara, who was recently subjected to racist insults, before the game against Rangers at Celtic Park.

"

I think it’s disgusting what happened, to be perfectly honest,

" the Hoops captain said.

"It doesn’t matter whether it’s a Rangers player or Celtic player, whoever it is. It should never be part of the game.

"It just shows that we’re with him, we stand with him on racism. It’s just that little bit of respect as well, knowing it’s a fellow professional.”

The hosts first took the lead in the 23rd minute with a goal from Mohamed Elyounoussi, but before half-time, Alfredo Morelos equalized for the Rangers. Brown received a yellow card in the 55th minute for blocking a counterattack, the Celtic skipper went on to say that receiving a yellow card was disappointing for him.

"

I think, for us, the first half, we were exceptional. We could have had three or four,

" he added. "

We had a penalty denied as well, it's a stonewall. There's no need for Odsonne to go down; there's contact, we saw at half-time. It's one of those, you go in 2-0 up and it changes the whole game
