Celtic: Fans were happy to see Scott Brown being booked against Rennes

Celtic will be without midfielder Scott Brown for their concluding Europa League match away to CFR Cluj in two weeks’ time.

The 34-year-old was booked in last night’s 3-1 win over Rennes at Parkhead, with his third yellow card of the competition landing him with a one-game suspension.

However, Celtic have the luxury of knowing that there is nothing at stake in the match for which Brown is suspended, with their victory over the French side ensuring that they would finish top of Group E.

The Hoops captain had been running the risk of a yellow card before he was eventually shown one on 55 minutes by referee Espen Eskas, having committed three fouls on the night.

Sky Sports reporter Ben Grounds noted how “Brown had been walking a tightrope during the first half after persistent fouling”, having escaped a booking for treading on Rennes’ Romain Del Castillo.

BBC reporter Tom English wrote that the midfielder “won’t care a jot” about being ruled out of the trip to Romania in December and these Celtic fans on Twitter also seemed quite happy for Brown to pick up the suspension-triggering yellow card last night:
