Celtic captain Scott Brown accepts responsibility for his red card against Barcelona in the Champions League.

Celtic captain Scott Brown has admitted that he must take responsibility for the red card he picked up against Barcelona in the Champions League last night.

Brown was shown a straight red following a kick on Brazilian Neymar, but the player has stated that he felt his dismissal was harsh.

"I realise that I made a mistake in getting sent off last night. It's something that happened in the heat of the moment but I shouldn't have acted in this way," Brown told Celtic's official club website.

"I still think it was a harsh decision. However, I recognise that I made a mistake and put myself and my teammates in a difficult position. I need to live with that and there is no-one more disappointed than me about losing the match.

"There wasn't a huge amount of contact at all, to be honest, but I have to accept responsibility for my actions - and I do."

Celtic lost 1-0 on the night thanks to a goal in the 75h minute from Cesc Fabregas.
