Scott Brown makes Celtic apology after ‘accident’ of liking tweet criticising Neil Lennon – Daily Record
Scott Brown has taken to Twitter in an attempt to explain a like that appeared on his timeline.
The Celtic captain appeared to have liked a tweet blaming Neil Lennon for the defeat to CFR Cluj in the Champions League qualifier.
But Brown insists he never meant to do it and accidentally hit it as he looked through Twitter following the game.
The midfielder was at fault for allowing Cluj back into the game when he inexplicably handled the ball during the second half to give away a penalty.
Brown liked a twitter from Hoops fan Kelly McGeachy which said: “Lennon come on to f**k your to blame you played McGregor at LB didn’t you learn when BR played him n look you’ve made him look awful when he’s a magnificent player tell ya some of the players even @ScottBrown8 need to say to Lennon he’s to blame this time and Chris benched REALLY”.
But the veteran apologised for the incident and told supporters to aim abuse at him rather than the Celtic manager.
He said: “Was just flicking through Twitter must of touched the button by accident.. Not my style to slag anyone off on Twitter. I am fully behind the manager and all the players are as well. If anyone should be getting a slagging or abuse it’s all on me tonight as didn’t perform. Sorry.”
