Scott Brown says Kamara gesture was ‘human decency’ as he tips Danes for award

Scott Brown was yesterday nominated for the FIFA Fair Play Award after his gesture to Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara back in March.The then Celtic captain showed his class during the warm up ahead of the Glasgow Derby kick-off against Rangers by crossing into the Rangers half and showing solidarity with Glen Kamara.

The 25-year-old midfielder was distraught during the week following an incident against Slavia Prague in the Europa League. Brown shook Kamara’s hand and embraced him, resulting in a brilliant picture of solidarity against racism, bigotry and sectarianism.

However, Broony has told the Daily Record that he was only showing ‘human decency’ after the gesture and that he believed that the Danish players and medical staff should receive the reward for their efforts to save Christian Eriksen’s life.

“I’m obviously very humbled to be nominated for such an award but, if truth be told, I’m also a little bit embarrassed to be mentioned in the same breath as the guys from Denmark.

“Let’s get it right, all I did was show my respect and support to an opponent who had been disgracefully abused just a few days earlier. I was sickened by the incident so shaking his hand was the least I could do.

“It was nothing more than a bit of human decency for someone who deserved to know we were all on his side.

“But the Danish lads were staring catastrophe in the face on that day in Copenhagen. What they did went way above an act of decency, it was truly heroic. Let’s just say, if I had a vote, I’d be giving it to all of them.

“And, as for Glen, I just hope he is never subjected to anything like that ever again.”
