Scott Brown: Celebrates with Celtic coach Garry Parker

Scott Brown: Celebrates with Celtic coach Garry Parker

The Hoops went into the second-leg of their qualifying tie trailing 2-0 but Kris Commons and Georgios Samaras levelled the aggregate with goals either side of half-time before James Forrest scored the winner three minutes into stoppage time.

Karagandy spent much of the build-up to the Wednesday's clash dismissing Celtic's chances, and Brown admits their approach fired up the Scottish Champions.

Brown said: "That was sweet. They came here saying they expected to score two or three but everybody underestimated us and we showed how good a team we really are. We were angry about everything last week.

"The only shot they had on goal tonight came from a long throw-in when they hit the bar. That's all they have: long throws.

"I got booked for celebrating the way they celebrated at the end of the first game. They were in everybody's faces.

"I know we are a big club and they were delighted to beat us but you have to show a bit of respect and they got what they deserved."

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes, who was involved in both second half goals, echoes Brown's sentiments.

Stokes said: "Listen, they did their talking in the papers; we did our talking on the pitch tonight. It's as simple as that.

"We rode our luck. One came off the crossbar. But that was always going to be the case; they had a game plan and it wasn't going to change. They played long balls into the box, hoofed balls up the pitch."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
