We’ll be Firm for Gers

Midweek Sport - - SPORTS -

SCOTT BROWN ad­mits Celtic have to put their cup final de­feat and tragic post-match events be­hind them be­fore the Old Firm derby on Sun­day.

Kil­marnock beat Celtic 1-0 in the Scot­tish Com­mu­ni­ties League Cup final, but news of mid­fielder Liam Kelly’s fa­ther col­laps­ing and dy­ing to­tally over­shad­owed their triumph. Brown said: “All the lads were gut­ted, es­pe­cially when we heard the news about the kid’s dad as well. It’s such a shame.”

He added: “It’s a bad time now but when Sun­day comes it’s got to be out of our heads.

“We have a big game at Ibrox and it could pos­si­bly be the league win­ner.”
