Goals from substitute Lassad Nouioui and former Dons player Charlie Mulgrew secured the points for Neil Lennon's side but Brown felt his charges were a little unlucky.

"I don't think we did enough to win the game, but maybe to draw," he said.

"Other than the two goals, I don't think Jamie Langfield had a lot to do in terms of making saves or cutting out crosses. I may be a bit optimistic, but it looked like it would finish 0-0.

"It's a measure of champions that they win when they need to, but Celtic have lost to other teams in the SPL and I had hoped that there might be a chance for us to win."

Brown praised the fortitude of 18-year-old winger Ryan Fraser, who was substituted after 64 minutes having taken a few heavy knocks.

"He was winded. He was knocked about a bit," added Brown.

"I spoke to him when he came off and he was feeling a bit of pain, but he's a brave wee guy so hopefully he'll be back for next week.

"We had to replace Gavin Rae, who is very influential for us, at half-time with a hamstring, and we had started without Ryan Jack, Gary Naysmith and Rob Milsom.

"To lose another one at half-time didn't help us. It's not an excuse because we didn't do enough and didn't keep the ball the way we have been doing."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
