Watch: Scott Brown shows his support to Glen Kamara before Old Firm derby

Videos

Celtic captain Scott Brown put rivalries to one side and showed his solidarity with Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara before the 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.
