Following the famous ‘Old Firm’ derby against Rangers, Celtic FC captain Scott Brown was repulsively abused by an opposition fan, using the player’s late sister who was a cancer victim at the age of only 21.
The Celts won the match at Ibrox Stadium 2-0 on Sunday with goals from Odsonne Édouard and Jonny Hayes. Soon after the victorious game, as the away players were heading towards the team bus, one Rangers fan shouted at Brown: ‘How’s your sister?’
The foul jab attempted by the Gers fan was referring to the 34 year old Midfielder’s late sister Fiona, who was a victim of skin cancer and passed away in 2008.
A Celtic fan named Kelly McGeachy posted a video on Twitter, calling the act ‘disgusting’. Watch the clip below-

The question came in form of disrespect towards Brown, as he stopped with a look of disapproval on his face before getting on the bus, as security officials were seen trying to escort the fan out of the area.
However, as soon as the clip went viral over social media, fans from the rival clubs came together to demean the vile act, and even found out the perpretator as a young man named ‘Sam Bain’. One fan confirmed that he has been given a life long ban.
Celtic and Rangers are currently 1st and 2nd in the Scottish Premiership table, along with 12 and 9 points to their names, respectively.
