scott out to silence the ibrox boasts.

Byline: MICHAEL GANNON

SCOTT BROWN has laughed off the big noises coming out of Rangers and he insists he's out to silence Ibrox again.

The Celtic skipper heard the Light Blues were cheering after the Scottish Cup draw put the big two on a collision course next month and they have talked up their chances of ending a run of eight Old Firm games without a win.

But he insisted the Hoops will be the ones roaring all the way to four wins in a row at the home of their great rivals in Sunday's Premiership high noon showdown.

Brown said: "Yeah, they've managed to talk quite a lot this week.

"We'll just do our usual job and turn up. In the last three games, we have been excellent at Ibrox.

"The pressure is all on them."

Brown is an Old Firm veteran and the 33-year-old insisted he's learned to keep the head in the heat of the battle.

He said: "I've been there before and got caught up in the occasion and got sent off.

"You learn from your mistakes and you make sure you push on.

"As captain, you need to be reliable and be there to do whatever the manager needs.

"On the pitch, everyone is a leader. I do the team-talk and then it's every man for himself."
