CQN asked our readers to vote on the Great Scott Brown Debate before this afternoon’s Scottish Cup Final against Hearts.

We asked for YOUR verdict on the question of whether the Celtic skipper should – or should not – start at Hampden.

Exactly 580 of you cast your vote and, overwhelmingly, CQN readers say the 35-year-old midfielder should NOT lead the team out on this occasion where the Hoops are a mere 90 minutes away from a glorious quadruple treble.

The voting showed that 425 of you (73%) reckon Neil Lennon should leave out the player, who has won 21 honours since his £4.4million arrival from Hibs in the summer of 2007.

However, 155 (27%) insist the veteran should get the nod to be in at the kick-off, ahead of Ivorian Ismaila Soro, who made his first-team debut 10 days ago in the 3-2 win over Lille and made enough of an impression to keep his place in the team’s engine room for last weekend’s 2-0 Premiership victory over Kilmarnock.

The thinking of CQN readers was fairly clear cut. They want Brown overlooked on this occasion.

Thank you to all who participated in the poll and we can all now wait and learn how the manager has been thinking as he assembles his starting formation.
