Celtic defeated Rangers on Sunday but goalkeeper Allan McGregor tried his hardest to not let that happen.

The two-spell Ibrox shot-stopper made a number of crucial saves across the 90 minutes to deny the Hoops piling on the misery, saving the club from another derby humiliation.

Ultimately only the three points matter, but another heavy defeat could have been a critical blow in the early stages of Steven Gerrard’s career at Rangers.

One of the first bits of business this summer was bringing the goalkeeper back to Glasgow and so far it looks like it may have been the most crucial transfer of the entire window.

His saves not only guided us towards the group stages of the UEFA Europa League but have now again been on the big stage.

These fans took to Twitter to pay tribute to his performance…

How vital is Allan McGregor going to be this season? Share your thoughts in the comments below…

  • I would give pass marks to a few today, but there is no doubt that Allan McGregor saved us from a real hiding. Celtic could easily have scored 4 or 5 today, so thanks, Allan. Notable failures were Morelos, Tavernier, Ejaria, and the unfortunate Ryan Jack who was wrongly given the job of keeping tabs on Tierney. He is good going forward but not so good at backtracking all game. Gerrard should have left out Morelos and brought in an additional midfielder, like McRory or Halliday, who played a blinder two years ago against Scott Brown, lest anyone forgets. MorelaS DID NOTHING ALL DAY, AND eJARIA NEXT TO NOTHING. tAVERNIER IS not suited to this sort of game as he always gets found out against good, fast, wingers or full backs–and he had Tierney and McGregor today. Hate to critizise Gerrard, but he was far too slow to change both personnel and tactics when it was clear that Celtic were so much on top. He has been good today, but I am sorry, he made too many tactical errors today. I hope that he has learnt from his mistakes, and does NOT KEEP BLAMING IT ON THE REFEREE.
