Hearts captain Christophe Berra has insisted that Celtic captain Scott Brown lacks a bit of class after goading Jambos players following his side’s Scottish Cup win.

Brown taunted several Hearts players at the full-time whistle and Berra admits that Brown should have shown a “bit of respect.”

Berra thinks that Brown is “getting a bad name” and pointed to Premier League giants Manchester City and Liverpool for tips on how to act.

“He is getting a bad name for himself at some points. Celtic have earned it but sometimes you should just show a bit of respect and get on with it,” Berra said, as quoted by Football Scotland.

“It is not classy and you don’t see that happening at the top level at clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool who dominate down there. They have a bit of class about them.”

Brown acting with a lack of class isn’t something new but it’s refreshing to see him called out on it.

After making history by lifting a treble treble, Brown focusing on goading Hearts players is pretty petty.

After being cited by the Scottish FA earlier in the season for doing similar towards Rangers fans, there should be some sort of action taken against the Celtic captain.
