RODGERS: BROWN SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SENT OFF

Brendan Rodgers has been speaking to the media ahead of Sunday's semi-final, and unsurprisingly the topic of Scott Brown's red card against Ross County was on the agenda.

Rodgers' stated that Brown's tackle was a yellow card offence at most, and that a lack of consistency was shown by referee Don Robertson, who only booked Motherwell's Ryan Bowman for a dreadful tackle on Kieran Tierney. Rodgers also revealed that he's had a call from the referee's delegate but not heard from Robertson yet, who he feels should apologise to Erik Sviatchenko for awarding that penalty decision last week.

Onto Sunday's game, Rodgers is delighted to have Brown back in the team as he is a 'catalyst' for the team and a 'top class player'. He also promised that the team will 'fight for our lives' on Sunday. Fighting words from the manager, which the fans will back I'm sure.
