Ex-Rangers man teases Scott Brown on Twitter

Celtic FC

Vladimir Weiss stuck the boot into Celtic's Scott Brown for his role in Rangers' opener during the Scottish Cup semi-final.

Rangers moved into the Scottish Cup final this afternoon after beating local neighbours Celtic on penalties in an epic Old Firm derby at Hampden Park this afternoon.

Kenny Miller fired the Gers and pre-match underdogs into a half-time lead by netting on 16 minutes, after Scott Brown struggled to clear a James Tavernier cross.

But first-half sub Erik Sviatchenko, who replaced Dedryck Boyata, grabbed an equaliser early in the second half but extra time was needed to separate both Glasgow giants.

There, Tom Rogic cancelled out Barrie McKay's 96th-minute wonder strike as the Hoops fought back once again to earn penalties, where their Australian midfielder went from hero to villain by missing the decisive spot-kick in sudden death.

Vladimir Weiss, who spent a year at Ibrox during a loan spell for the 2010-11 season, was active on Twitter throughout and took particular pleasure from the role Brown played in Miller's opener.

Losing was a body blow for Celtic, whose hopes of a double were scrapped and Ronny Deila's side must now focus on winning the Scottish Premiership title.
