Rangers have since handed out a lifetime ban to the 15-year-old perpetrator who has also been charged by police for the comment made to Brown as he exited Ibrox after Celtic's recent Old Firm derby victory.

Brown joined Celtic in 2007 and just a year later in 2008, he lost his younger sister, Fiona.

Ryan Kent is set for a debut on Saturday after the former loanee returned from Liverpool in a permanent £7m deal, and Gerrard says bringing him back was "a no-brainer".

"It's not just one incident, it's happened over the last 12 years of my career".

"Fans from both sides were phenomenal to be honest", said Brown while he also described an email apology from Rangers as "lovely". "It's hard but it's there, it's sad".

"Every supporter I bumped into and the players in the dressing room throughout summer kept asking me about Kent", the Rangers boss said.

"You can shout and swear at me as much as you want on the park but don't go into detail off the park like that".

"Nigeria must have started watching him since he started playing at Rangers, they must be happy with him playing in Europa League games and him playing in front of 51,000 people". It's about me focusing on football now and continuing winning games. And he feels that this recent incident is nothing new as he has been receiving similar abuse throughout his Celtic career.

"That's easy, social media", Brown replied. 'Anyone can write what they want.

"Someone sitting in the house, who has probably never played sport, thinks they will drink a bottle of vodka and then go and write something online". I made no secret of the fact I held the number 14 shirt back for a reason. You block those people out, you focus on your football and you go out there and prove everyone wrong'.
