Celtic youngster Calvin Miller revealed his delight at helping the Under-20 side beat Rangers on Tuesday afternoon.
The 19-year-old bagged the game’s only goal as Celtic beat Rangers in the Scottish Professional Football League Development League at Murray Park.
An unmarked Miller broke free on the left-hand side to fire an unstoppable shot at goalkeeper Robby McGrorie’s near post just before half-time.
The victory saw Celtic’s U20 side move up to seventh in the league, five points clear of Rangers.
Following the game, Miller triumphantly tweeted his delight at the victory over their great rivals, adding there’s only ‘one team in Glasgow.’

Miller made his senior debut for Celtic during the 1-0 Scottish Premiership win over Partick Thistle in December, in an unfamiliar left-back role.
However, despite impressing Brendan Rodgers on his professional bow, Miller has yet to re-surface in the first-team setup.
He remains one of the club’s top young prospects, and signed a new three-year deal with the club last year.
Following the victory over Partick Thistle back in December, Rodgers hailed Miller’s talent and compared him to one of his former players, Ryan Bertrand – a player he worked with whilst at Chelsea.
He told the Daily Record: “He’s very quick and he reminds me of Ryan, who I had at Chelsea and was converted from a winger to left-back.
“I moved Scott Sinclair wide and Ryan to left-back and he went on to play for England and won the Champions League with Chelsea. I see similar traits in Calvin, he’s got some outstanding qualities.
“For 18 years of age, a young player that’s just moved position he did very well in his first game.”
