Rangers hero Foderingham says Celtic skipper Scott Brown's penalty was predictable

Rangers hero Wes Foderingham says he knew how to save Celtic midfielder Scott Brown's penalty.

Celtic skipper Scott Brown may have to go back to the drawing board for his penalty shoot out routine if Wes Foderingham's comments are anything to go by.

The Rangers goalkeeper hinted that Brown had been found out, telling Rangers TV after the game that he knew which way he would put his penalty.

He said that he and Rangers goalkeeping coach Jim Stewart had studied Brown, and were prepared for the spot kick.

Foderingham said: "We knew he was going to go that way, and it was just a case of me choosing to go that way. Thankfully, it worked out like that."

He added that had Brown's penalty been perfectly executed then he would not have stood a chance in any case, but on this occasion he was given a chance to save it.

He said: "A good penalty is one that goes right in the corner – if it goes there you’re not going to save it and they’re going to score."

Foderingham's comments should worry Brown and give him food for thought on his penalty technique, and ask himself just why Rangers were able to suss him out.

Unpredictability is the way to be successful from the spot, and the 30-year-old will have to work on a way to be less easy to read when next called upon in a big moment.
