Many Scottish football fans will have wanted Rangers and Celtic to face each other in the third round of the Scottish League Cup.
Rangers legend Brown, though, is happy that the two biggest clubs of Scotland are not facing other in the Scottish League Cup so early in the competition.
“I was glad they didn’t draw Celtic because it’s allowing the players to get to know each other,” Brown told The Scottish Sun.
“If Rangers can get through against St Johnstone then whether it was a semi-final or a final, they’d have another 10-12 games under their belt. By then they would be better for that challenge because Celtic are the benchmark.”
Celtic are second in the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 13 points from five matches, just two points behind leaders Hearts.
Meanwhile, Rangers currently find themselves at the top of the Scottish Championship standings with nine points from three games.
