RANGERS Managing Director Stewart Robertson has made a personal phone call to apologise to Scott Brown after the player had been subject to vile abuse at Ibrox on Sunday.
The Celtic skipper was targeted by a yob as he left the stadium following the champions’ 2-0 win over Steven Gerrard’s team.
The sickening taunt was clearly audible on a video clip as Brown made his way to the team bus. “How’s your sister?” was the disgusting diatribe.
The Hoops midfielder’s sister Fiona passed away at the age of 21 in 2008 after a battle with skin cancer.
A 15-year-old Rangers fan was later arrested and charged.
SICKENING…Scott Brown looks stunned at the vile abuse.
Gers supremo Robertson made a move to contact Brown, 34, to say say sorry for the disgusting attack and convey his disgust and regret over the shocking incident.
He made a phone call to the former Scotland international captain while also apologising in writing in an email.
Supporters of clubs all around the country rushed to condemn the unacceptable outburst.
Within hours of the clip appearing online, the Ibrox club handed out a life ban to the culprit, who can’t be named due to his age.
