Brown ‘lacks respect’
Celtic captain Scott Brown ‘lacks respect’ according to talkSPORT presenter Jim White.
Brown was the centre of attention during Saturday’s Old Firm Derby, tangling with both Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.
White said, as quoted by The Daily Record: “He was celebrating very, very close to the small number of Rangers supporters who were allowed in.
“And that’s what led to Gerrard to say, ‘a lack of respect’. This is what he lacks, he lacks respect and you expect more from a Celtic captain.
“I think of Celtic captains in the past, my God, I think of Roy Aitken, of Billy McNeill, the best one ever. Brown doesn’t have it for me in terms of respect.
With Celtic now 13 points clear at the top, Brown is unlikely to care too much about what people made of his actions.
Milan eye Castagne
Calciomercato report that Timothy Castagne is a transfer target for AC Milan.
The Belgian was on Celtic’s radar in January. No move materialised but the player did leave the door open for a potential Bhoys swoop this summer (The Scottish Sun).
But they could now face competition from the Rossoneri, with sporting director Leonardo supposedly a keen admirer.
Celtic’s Mikael Lustig and Christian Gamboa are both out of contract at the end of the season.
Sutton urges Kent chase
Chris Sutton thinks Celtic should attempt to sign Ryan Kent after his Rangers loan spell concludes.
The club’s former striker wrote in his Daily Record column that the winger would improve the Bhoys’ left flank, with Scott Sinclair’s recent performances having gone ‘flat’.
Sutton was impressed with the way Kent grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck.
“He delivered some great balls into the box and breezed past Dedryck Boyata to take his equaliser very well,” he said. “Celtic should test Liverpool’s resolve with a bid.”
Liverpool recently reportedly placed a £12 million valuation on the youngster (The Liverpool Echo).
