Celtic

Brown relishing Rangers battle

28th March 2019, 18:42 by Tom Hill

Celtic captain Scott Brown says his team are still hurting from their Scottish Premiership defeat to rivals Rangers back in December.

The Hoops were beaten 1-0 at Ibrox in what was their final game before the winter break.

Many expected that defeat to open up a title battle but Celtic are now 10 points ahead of their Old Firm foes ahead of Sunday's meeting.

Celtic will play host at Celtic Park this weekend and Brown insists everyone is determined to make amends for the defeat earlier in the campaign.

He told Sky Sports: "We need to make sure we're on our game and focused.

"We had a slight slip-up against them in the last game so that's still in the back of our minds.

"We're still hurting a little bit from that but yet again we've gone on a fantastic run since coming back from Dubai and are lucky enough to be 10 points clear."
