Brown initially pushed Kipre before the Frenchman lashed out in retaliation. There appeared to be minimal contact but it didn’t stop referee Craig Thomson from reducing the hosts to ten men.

Walker, who was previously called a “poor man’s Gary Neville” by the former Scotland skipper, condemned Brown for his “play acting” during the Sky Sports broadcast.

The co-commentator said shortly into the second half: “Scott Brown’s reaction was pathetic. And it’s something he’s accused other players of doing in the past.”

Though Celtic were unable to breakdown a resolute opponent in the second half, the point still moves them ten points clear at the top of the table.
