The Celtic skipper sbo168 fired up the Ibrox side as he prepared for Sunday’s Old Firm showdown at Parkhead where the champions can seal their seventh successive Premiership title.
Graeme Murty’s team currently sit second in the league, but Brown insisted Neil Lennon’s Easter Road outfit deserve to be rated the best of the rest.
When asked if Rangers were the second strongest team in the country, the midfielder replied: “No. Hibs are.
“They came up from the Championship and have shown everyone how good they can be.
“They have a top-quality manager, a good young team. If they can keep that together, sbo168 who knows what they can do?
“They definitely have given us our toughest games this season. They play good football but are up for the battle.
“The two strikers are playing really well together, they understand how each other play.”
The Edinburgh men took seven points off Brendan Rodgers’ side in this campaign with two 2-2 stalemates and last week’s 2-1 success in the capital that stalled the Hoops’ title celebrations.
Celtic beat the 4-2 in the League Cup semi-final with the help of doubles from Mikael Lustig and Moussa Demble while a goal from Leigh Griffiths was enough for a 1-0 victory in Glasgow in January.
Brown relished the Scottish Cup semi-final four-goal demolition of Rangers at Hampden and is now determined to stage a rerun at the weekend.
He added: “It’s always all about Celtic. If we turn up, we play, we reach our best, we beat Rangers – no problem.
”Rangers will have a point to prove, especially with the semi-final result and everything that has been happening since.
“They will want to come after us and try to put us under pressure.
“But we have top-quality players who can cope and play through it.” sbo168
