Rangers star takes dig at Celtic senior player after loss against Zenit

Former Rangers star defender Michael Ball has aimed a dig a Celtic captain Scott Brown after the Scottish was spotted walking around St. Petersburg in short sleeves despite it being -11°C.

Ball poked fun at the Celtic senior player after his side were knocked out of the Europa League on a 3-1 aggregate by Zenit St. Petersburg in the round of 32.

The Russian side won 3-0 on the night after goals from Branislav Ivanovic, Daler Kuzyaev and Aleksandr Kokorin saw Brendan Rodgers’ side 1-0 first leg triumph at the Parkhead last Thursday meaningless.

Quoting a tweet from BBC’s Match of the Day showing Brown in freezing Russia in just a t-shirt ball said on his own personal Twitter account:

“well that worked”

Despite the freezing temperatures outside, the match was played in a balmy 20°C inside Zenit’s $1billion Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg.

The Rangers former defender spent four years at Ibrox after a £6.5million move from Everton in 2001 and registered 77 appearances for the Gers after he suffered a serious knee injury which kept him out of action for 18 months.

Ball then move to PSV in 2005 for a reported £500,000 fee and spent two years in the Netherlands before a two-year stint back in England with Manchester City.

During Ball’s time at Ibrox, he won a Scottish title and the Scottish League Cup with the Gers under Alex McLeish back in the 2004/15 season. Ball also won one England appearance when he played against Spain in a friendly in 2001.
