Rangers need a Scott Brown-type figure in their team

Rangers fans won’t like to hear it, but their team needs a Scott Brown-type figure if they are to mount a serious bid for the Premiership title.

The Celtic captain was at the heart of the controversy during Saturday’s fiesty Old Firm Derby, which Celtic won 2-1 at Parkhead (BBC Sport).

Odsonne Edouard opened the scoring with a fine solo effort, with James Forrest striking the winner late in the second half following Ryan Kent’s equaliser.

The result puts Celtic 13 points clear at the top, which will surely see them seal an eighth straight title.

Rangers have fallen way short in their pursuit of Celtic and silverware in general in Steven Gerrard’s first season in charge, and perhaps their lack of a genuine leader has cost them dear.


TBR’s view

Brown is by no means Celtic’s best player, but his influence won them the game on Saturday.

His antics in the Morelos incident have divided opinion but arguably he just put himself in a situation and allowed the Colombian to do the rest.

He managed to get his team an advantage and ultimately they got three points.

Brown’s style is not the most popular among rival fans, but he is adored by the Celtic faithful for his commitment to the cause. He undeniably has a win-at-all-costs mentality.

His leadership and mastery of footballing dark arts go a long way for that team and it has done for years.

At the moment Rangers, captained by James Tavernier, are lacking a player of that ilk. They need a Brown-esque figure; somebody who can provide bite and bark orders throughout the team.

Rangers need someone whose stature and presence alone will help them manage in-game situations.
