Danny Mills has said that a 1-0 win for Celtic would have been a “fair result” in Sunday’s Old Firm clash with Rangers at Ibrox.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England international says that the Hoops showed themselves to have a bit more quality than their Glasgow rivals and that victory was well deserved.
Neil Lennon’s men had taken the lead through striker Odsonne Edouard, while Jonny Hayes put the icing on the cake with a second goal in injury-time.
Mills says that while victory was well warranted for the Bhoys, the second goal might have flattered them a little bit after performing only slightly better than Steven Gerrard’s side.
Mills told Football Insider: “Celtic, you have to say, were probably just that little bit better than Rangers. 1-0 was probably a fair result on the day, it ended up 2-0.
“Celtic had more quality, as simple as that. Not by a lot, but if you looked at it on paper and went 1-0, I’m pretty sure the bookies would have got that right.”
Celtic’s victory means that they head into the international break top of the Scottish Premiership table, having extended their perfect run to the season.
Rangers sit in second having also won their first three games of the campaign, one point and one place ahead of an unbeaten Livingston side.
The next derby day comes at the end of December at Parkhead, in what will be the final game of 2019 for both sides.
In other Celtic and Rangers news, Mills has been left fuming to Football Insider about one “ridiculous” Ibrox ace after Sunday’s showdown.
