“We need to man up about it. Football is a contact sport and you have to deal with some tackles. I am not saying mine was great or a bad one. I am not really sure. Some people have said it was a bad one, but I haven’t had time to look at it.
“I don’t go into hurt anyone.”
Brown, though, is prepared for another midfield skirmish in the crucial meeting with Paul Hartley’s Dundee at Dens Park tonight.
“We always knew there was top quality players in that dressing room and we now have to kick on.
“We need to go up to Dundee and get three points. It’s a hard place and they played really well in the goalless draw at Celtic Park. They definitely did their homework, that’s for sure.
“Every game is huge for us, but these three games could kick the season right on. Three points at Dundee will be huge for us because we could go seven points clear. We have an early kick off on Saturday and by the end of that we could be 10 points clear.
“That can play on peoples’ minds and, hopefully, we can make it all about us.”
