Chris Sutton wrong about this player: Three things learned about Celtic from win v Rangers
COMMENT By Danny Wright
Celtic put to bed any hopes of a Rangers revival on Saturday when they ran out 2-0 winners at Ibrox.
Second-half strikes from Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths ensured that Brendan Rodgers’ side would keep alive their unbeaten streak in domestic competition and land a major physcological blow on their bitter Glasgow rivals.
After a goalless first-half which was full of action, Rogic found the opener in the 50th minute thanks to some lapse defending from the Light Blues following Patrick Roberts’ skewed shot.
Not long after, Roberts again turned provider, but this time there was much more intent about it as he played in Griffiths to slot the ball past Wes Foderingham in the Gers goal.
The Bhoys barely moved out of first gear for most of the game even though Rangers did at times look like they had the ability to get themselves back in the game, but some solid defending ensured the job was done.
