Scott Brown wasn’t in the mood to play along with Motherwell’s sob stories as he previewed tomorrow’s third clash with the Fir Park side in a week.
Tears have been mixed with anger from the Lanarkshire side ranging from the wife of their assistant manager through to new communications supremo Grant Russell.
Not a word has been said from the club about Cedric Kipre’s brutal attack on Moussa Dembele.
With the frenzy of rage in full flow about Celtic getting penalties in successive matches Brown applied some cold logic with some uncomfortable facts about recent matches.

“They managed to get a free kick, from Louis Moult that they scored from and it definitely wasn’t a free kick,” Brown explained. “Nobody says anything about that.
“They should have had a straight red in the cup final as well, that sort of got passed over for the penalty decisions. What goes around comes around to be perfectly honest.”
Brown was also critical of Motherwell fans that threw coins and packets of sweets at himself and his Celtic team-mates.
It seems that Motherwell have a discipline problem and are easily led by public opinion, opinion that won’t be the slightest bit interested in the club once their matches with Celtic are completed.
Kevin Clancy will be in charge of tomorrow’s match which gives Celtic the chance to go seven points clear of Aberdeen.
