Brown demands action after horror tackle

Scott Brown has called on UEFA to charge Benfica's Augustin Binya for the challenge that forced him out of last night's Champions League game.

The Celtic midfielder limped off the park shortly after Binya was shown a straight red card for a shocking tackle with five minutes to go.

Afterwards, Brown accused his opponent of trying to break his leg and, while applauding the response of Swedish referee Martin Hansson, urged football's governing body to act as well.

Brown told Sky Sports News: 'I'm all right. It was a bad challenge but I've come through it.'

Asked for his verdict on the video replay, Brown said: '(It's) shocking. I don't think the guy should ever have done that. He obviously tried to do me as hard as possible.'

Brown was left in no doubt that Binya attempted to break the leg. He said: 'Yes I think he did, but I want to fight another day. Hopefully UEFA will deal with it properly. The referee dealt with it very well and sent him off right away.'

Aiden McGeady grabbed the only goal of the game with a superb shot on the stroke of half-time to earn a much-needed win for Celtic, who headed into the match bottom of Group D.

'It's one of the nights I'll remember for the rest of my life,' McGeady told ITV1.

'It's my first Champions League goal, and it makes it that bit sweeter that we got the victory as well. I've still got a long way to go before I become the player I think I can be and I know I can be. But every game I'm learning. It's not so much confidence - I just feel my game's moving up a level.'

McGeady's strike took a deflection off Luisao en route to goal and he smiled: 'It took about four deflections I think, but it was just one of those shots, and if you don't shoot you don't score.

'Luckily for me it took a bit of a deflection, the keeper's going the wrong way, it's fooled him a little bit and you can't get any better than that.'

Manager Gordon Strachan hailed McGeady as 'awesome' afterwards and, when asked what else he found pleasing on the night, said: 'The whole lot of them in the second half. I told them not to leave anything to chance, to go out there and win it for themselves and blow them (Benfica) away. And I think that's what we did.'

Celtic, along with Old Firm rivals Rangers, now have a free weekend before Scotland's crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against Italy on November 17.

Strachan added: 'It's nice to have a break when you have had a terrific result against Kilmarnock away from home and another terrific result tonight.

'We've had a traumatic couple of days, losing to Hearts last week, and the players have handled it brilliantly.'

Meanwhile, Benfica coach Jose Antonio Camacho insisted his own team's hopes of progressing to the knockout phase are still alive.

'If we continue to play like that we can go through,' he said. 'I thought we played well when we had the ball but we didn't score.

'Sometimes it goes in, sometimes it doesn't. In the 44th minute, the ball took a deflection, went in the net and Celtic scored. We had some clear-cut chances but didn't score.

'I was very happy with the work of the team - just not happy with the result.'
