Watch: Scott Brown shows his support to Glen Kamara before Old Firm derby
The build-up to the game was dominated by allegations that Kamara was subject to racist abuse during Rangers’ Europa League defeat to Slavia Prague on Thursday.
During the warm-up at Parkhead, Brown walked into the Rangers half and personally sought out Kamara before hugging him in a touching moment.
Rangers and Celtic players then stood instead of taking the knee prior to kick-off to show their opposition to racism.
Mohamed Elyounoussi gave Celtic the lead before Alfredo Morelos equalised and neither side could find a winner.
“It is disgusting what has happened, it does not matter if it is a Rangers player or Celtic player it should never be part of the game and it just shows we stand with them,” Brown said after the game.
