  • Brown: Bhoys came to Ibrox determined to show their quality

    Brown: Bhoys came to Ibrox determined to show their quality

  • SCOTT Brown said Celtic’s Glasgow derby win was a great performance and revealed he and his team-mates arrived at Ibrox not only determined to win, but to show their quality. Neil Lennon’s team recorded a memorable victory against Rangers in a thrilling 2-0 win which extends their 100% winning start to the new Premiership campaign.

    Scott Brown was instrumental in Celtic’s display but the Hoops captain only had praise for how his team-mates' contribution throughout the 90 minutes.

    “It was a great performance from the lads,” said Brown. “We defended really well, we came here, knew our jobs, knew what we had to do and we delivered on the park.

    “The motivation for us week-in-week-out is our fans wanting us to win whether we’re at home or away. There’s a lot of pressure on us all the time and, for us, this is another game and we need to make sure we win it.

    “I enjoy playing football, I play with a smile on my face and whether I’m on the pitch or the bench, as long as this team wins, that’s the main thing. It’s not about me individually. It’s about this team collectively.

    “It’s hard to come here and play and press in the way we do. The new boys are all playing catch-up with that and now they're starting to understand how we play, how we dictate the game and press high up the park. Now they’ve got that. I think we defended really well and for us to come here and keep a clean sheet is great.”

    Celtic’s playing style saw the champion’s dominate their opponents throughout the game and Brown revealed that was down to Neil Lennon’s tactical approach to the fixture.

    “The manager wanted us to play a bit higher up the park and not take the chances at the back," he said. "We let an early goal in last time so we learned from our lessons. It’s about coming here and showing you’ve got the quality. It’s always hard going away from home, we need to defend and catch teams on the counter-attack. We have pace everywhere, Jonny comes on and Mikey goes off and we have pace there. James has pace on the right as well.

    “For the young ones to come through and win away from home is what this club is about. It’s about bringing the young ones through and showing their talent in the big games. We need to recover, make sure everyone is okay and go again. We have a huge season of 60-odd games and it’s about winning as many of them as we can.”
