Rangers fans criticise the performance of Ovie Ejaria in Celtic loss

Moussa Dembele- Moussa Dembele's social media activity has attracted attention

The deadlock was finally broken just after the hour when Celtic hit on the counter-attack after Referee Willie Collum failed to penalise Tom Rogic for an alleged foul on Ryan Jack, despite fourth official John Beaton indicating a free-kick.

Within reach of fouling him and stopping the player in his tracks, Ejaria simply gave chase without effect, also failing to track the run of eventual goalscorer Olivier Ntcham. Was it is his fault?

Gerrard was apoplectic that Celtic's defining, 62nd-minute goal was allowed to stand.

He said: "I didn't see it as a foul". I said "you can now go if you can get the move"'.

You could not describe Rangers' first-half performance as being a masterclass in that department, but it was certainly an improvement considering what happened last season on this ground, where the aggregate scoreline was 9-0 to Celtic.

He had spent the first 10 seasons of his career as a professional footballer under the guidance of Gerard Houllier and Rafael Benitez, managers for whom defensive organisation came first, particularly in matches of importance.

In the second of those games, Celtic led by five goals in the 53rd minute.

The home side were now dominating possession and as the first-half wore on the pressure on the Rangers goal began to intensify - firstly in the 33rd minute a stunning 25-yard drive from James Forrest struck the top of the crossbar, then seconds later from a Ntcham corner a header from Mikael Lustig struck the same woodwork before being scrambled clear.

Rodgers was pleased with his team's latest victory over their bitter rivals but was frustrated they 'didn't score one or two more'.

The scorelines did often suggest there was a gulf between the Old Firm rivals.

Rangers defender Connor Goldson says he thought playing against Celtic would be equivalent to taking on Barcelona, having been told that there is a big gap in quality between the Glasgow sides.

The goalkeeper's kick on the Norwegian defender as the opening half was poised at the halfway mark ought to have seen him removed from the fray, something that Gerrard conceded himself in the immediate aftermath of the game. "I saw enough to think we can be a match for Celtic in the next fixture". Steven has done well getting them organised so we had to be patient.

Both clubs named as substitutes one of their two new signings made in the dying embers of the transfer window, namely Filip Benkovic for Celtic and Joe Worrall for Rangers.
