Scott Brown taunted over sister's death following Old Firm
The Celtic captain was subjected to the taunts after his side's 2-0 victory at Ibrox.
Celtic captain Scott Brown has been taunted over his late sister's death following Sunday's Old Firm game at Ibrox.
The incident took place as Brown was leaving the stadium following his side's 2-0 victory.
The Hoops' skipper was getting on the team bus when a man standing with a waiting crowd of Rangers fans asked him "how's your sister?".
The comment was in reference to Brown's sister Fiona who was 21-years-old when she died of cancer in 2008.
The 34-year-old midfielder looked stunned as he turned to face the abusive supporter after the incident that was caught on video and posted to social-media.
After making comment the man was quickly reprimanded by police and condemned by his fellow Rangers supporters with one telling him "That is out of order".
The man, who has reportedly now been banned from Ibrox Park, was also told to "beat it" after the comment.
Just a few minutes later Brown stopped to get a picture with a young Rangers fan.
According to the young girl's father, who posted the picture on Twitter, the Celtic skipper was a "class act throughout."
He Tweeted: "The person who said it was immediately pointed out by every decent Rangers fan that was there and the police got hold of him when he tried to leave the scene.
"Here is Scott Brown one minute afterwards with my daughter and he was a class act throughout."
Celtic won the game 2-0 thanks to goals from Odsonne Edouard and Johnny Hayes.
The victory puts the Hoops three points clear at the top of the league and maintains their 100% start to the domestic season.
