RANGERS say the person responsible for taunting Celtic captain Scott Brown about his sister's death will be banned for life from Ibrox.

The abuse had been directed towards Mr Brown after the Old Firm derby on Sunday which Celtic won 2-0.

It came as a number of supporters gathered at the main door of Ibrox waiting for the players to appear.

As Mr Brown made his way to Celtic’s team bus after the game, a supporter shouted: "How’s your sister?".

The jibe was a reference to Mr Brown’s younger sister Fiona who passed away at the age of 21 from skin cancer in 2008.
