Watch Scott Brown celebrate in front of angry Ranger fans after dipping his head towards Aberdeen as missiles are launched
FORMER Celtic midfielder Scott Brown celebrated his goal for Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday night by mocking Rangers fans.
The 36-year-old, who played as center-back for his new team, doubled the Dons lead after just 16 minutes with a superb diving header from a corner.
After putting the ball in the net, Brown stood up and sprinted towards the Rangers fans where he did a knee slip and looked at the crowd.
Some of the Scottish champions’ fans threw things at the former Celtic man as he upset them on the sideline, with a few supporters believing he was impersonating the celebration of Rangers star Alfredo Morelos.
The Scottish Premiership holders returned to the game just four minutes after Brown’s goal when Morelos pulled one out.
And Steven Gerrard’s men completed the comeback with nine minutes remaining when James Tavernier’s penalty earned them a point.
Speaking after the game, Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass told the club’s website: “We have been excellent throughout the squad.
“Scott [Brown] is obviously a leader, always has been, and despite playing out of position he has shown what he is capable of, he has shown why he is at the club and he has shown how great a player he is .
“Having him there also gives us the opportunity to change form because he can enter midfield and we can do that without making a replacement.”
The game was the first time the Rangers have played since the death of club legend Walter Smith.
And they were able to harness that emotion a bit to make sure they got a point in the game.

The draw also means the Rangers still have a two point lead at the top of the table.
Brown’s former side Celtic are now in second place, one point ahead of chasers Hearts and Dundee United.
Meanwhile, Aberdeen is in eighth place after winning just three of its opening 11 league games.
