Skipper mustn't change

Manager Neil Lennon says Celtic skipper Scott Brown must never lose his competitive nature despite another incident whilst playing for Scotland.

"I don't want to lose that side of him, as long as he does it within the rules of the game" - Neil Lennon
Brown is currently serving a three-game Champions League ban following his recent sending-off for kicking out at Barcelona's Brazilian playmaker Neymar. That has in turn ruled him out of next week's vital group clash with AC Milan at Celtic Park.

The 28-year-old also repeated the act during Scotland's latest 1-0 win over Norway - this time against Vegard Forre. However, Brown escaped punishment and went on to score the winning goal.

"I am not taking the devil out of him," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "I don't want to lose that side of him, as long as he does it within the rules of the game.

"I didn't see the game and I haven't seen it since then, so it is difficult for me to comment on it," he added. "I don't need to speak to him about it. I have already spoken to him about the Barcelona incident and I made my feelings pretty clear on that privately. It is part of his make-up. That's what makes him such a good player."
