In today’s early kickoff in the Scottish Premiership, Rangers welcomed Celtic to Ibrox and the only focus for manager Steven Gerrard and the lads was in righting our more recent record against the side.
An almost perfect performance from us got the richest of returns as midfielder Ryan Jack broke the deadlock in the 30th minute of the game, and in keeping the clean sheet, we took all three points and the victory – keeping the battle at the top of the table more than alive as we now look to the second half of the 2018/19 campaign.

Although Brendan Rodgers’ side have a game in hand and a better goal difference, we are now tied at the top once more, and the result was nothing less than we deserved – there will be some quibbles about their disallowed goal but when the pundits agree Celtic were second best, fans aren’t looking at the performance through Rangers tinted goggles.
Channel that desire and effort in every game and our slip-ups and draws will turn into wins.
Speaking to the BBC following the fulltime whistle, a thrilled Gerrard explained.
“This moment is all about the supporters, they’ve been through a lot and they’ve been punished in these fixtures. The players were outstanding. I asked them to win more one v ones and we were better to a man, we were the better team, we could have won it more comfortably. We played with courage, we played with belief, we were brave, competed all over the pitch, I asked them to bring their A-game and they did – that’s what I want to see on a regular basis.”
