James Forrest has paid tribute to Scott Brown for his influence on and off the park following Celtic’s win over Rangers.
The Hoops went 13 points clear at the top of the Premiership with a 2-1 win at Celtic Park yesterday, and their captain was involved in three major incidents.
First he was elbowed by Alfredo Morelos, for which the Colombian received a red card, and he was later struck in the face by Ryan Kent.
After the final whistle, Brown’s enthusiastic celebrations provoked a furious reaction from Rangers left-back Andy Halliday.
“He’s unbelievable for the squad on and off the park,” Forrest said.
“I’ve never played with anyone who has got so much about him. You see him on the park, he just gets everyone working.
“I don’t know what happened with the red card but he is always keeping going, he is always fighting and you see him at the end, he is a real plus to have in the team.
“It’s an Old Firm game and everyone wants to win, their players are the same.
“With the shift Broony puts in and what he’s done for the team, he is obviously buzzing and it’s a big result.”
