Rangers hero Ally McCoist was left stunned after being "set up" by Scott Brown and Jim White in an on-air callback to his furious exchange with Neil Lennon in 2011.

The Ibrox assistant McCoist clashed with Lennon at full-time at Parkhead after a fierce derby between Celtic and Rangers.

The match finished 1-0 to Celtic with two Rangers players sent off and a third red card produced after the final whistle.

But it was McCoist and Lennon's touchline spat that was the headline news from the encounter - and it's something both men are quizzed on.

However, McCoist didn't expect to have the flashpoint raised on-air as he was joined by Ayr United boss Scott Brown on talkSPORT.

The Ibrox legend was stunned as a pre-recorded message from Jim White was broadcast referencing the incident - sending McCoist into a fit of laughter.

White asked Brown: "You played in many Old Firm games. What were some of the craziest moments and what was your take on the famous McCoist Lennon touchline tiff?"

McCoist then added:ย "Hahaha! I didn't know I was getting set up Broony! I didn't know I was getting set up!"

Wading into the incident, Brown replied: "To be fair I quite enjoyed it - you took the pressure off me for once! I can't believe the two of you didn't get a red card for that. But you kissed and made up?"

McCoist responded:ย "Oh aye. We had a bottle of beer right after it."

Brown concluded:ย "That's a good thing. That's what it's all about. You play for 90 minutes and you try and win. As a manager is the exact same. You give a little bit, you take a little bit and after it you should be going away and having beers and that.

"People never really understood it. Whitts (Steven Whittaker) and Thommo (Kevin Thommo) were my best mates and there was one of these times we went away with Scotland straight after the Old Firm game. We all jumped in the same car. I've got a Celtic trackie on and they've got Rangers stuff on.

"And there's people going: 'Broony, whit are you daein' wae them?!' And I was thiking : 'Aye, you;re spot on actually!' But we'd been mates since we were 11, 12-years old all the way through."
