Scott Brown Laughs At Ryan Kent After Being Sent Off, Then Waves Him Off Pitch

Aberdeen captain and ultimate wind-up merchant Scott Brown laughed in the face of Rangers winger Ryan Kent during Tuesday night's Scottish Premiership clash at Pittodrie.

The 36-year-old midfielder, who spent 14 trophy-laden years at Celtic before joining Aberdeen in the summer, was never far from the headlines when an Old Firm derby rolled around.

And one of his most infamous moments came in 2019, when Ryan Kent was handed a two-match ban for throwing a 'punch' at Brown during a typically feisty clash between Rangers and Celtic.

Two years later and Aberdeen captain Brown decided to wind up Liverpool academy graduate Kent by waving him off the pitch after he picked up a controversial second yellow.

There wasn't much contact from Kent but referee Kevin Clancy thought it justified an early bath.

As you can see from the footage below, Brown proceeds to laugh in his opponent's face before waving him off as the Pittodrie crowd cheered every second. He's never going to change, is he?

When asked if he was surprised by Brown's antics on Tuesday night, former Celtic boss Neil Lennon said: "Not really. He'll be enjoying this, smelling a bit of blood. 

"There's obviously a bit of history there. Not just with Ryan Kent, but with a lot of players. He's good at the noise up. 

"He'll be loving it, revelling in it. He has done for the last 10-15 years. 

"He's been a really good influence there (Aberdeen) on the younger players."

Aberdeen managed to pick up a point against reigning champions Rangers after a 73rd minute penalty from Lewis Ferguson cancelled out Ianis Hagi's first-half opener.

Former Rangers man Ally McCoist was far from satisfied with the outcome. "I was so disappointed in both my teams last night, they were rotten, they were rotten man, Chelsea, and Rangers were worse," he told talkSPORT.

"I don't want to talk about either of them, move on, I've annoyed myself."
