Peter Lovenkrands delivers Twitter verdict on Rangers draw v Celtic
By Danny Wright
Peter Lovenkrands has applauded Rangers’ performance against Celtic on Sunday.
Clint Hill tapped in a late equaliser for the Light Blues, who had been behind for most of the game after Stuart Armstrong scored a great goal in the first half.
Despite Celtic’s dominance in the Scottish Premiership this season, Gers were more than a match for their great Old Firm rivals and put in a very impressive performance that more than justified what they earned.
Lovenkrands, who spent six years as a Gers player, believes that his former side were completely deserving of their point.
“Great preformance Rangers, deserved the draw,” he said on his personal Twitter account.

The 37-year-old won all there was to win in Scotland and lifted two league titles, a Scottish Cup and three League Cups in his time at Ibrox.
He went on to play for German club Schalke before returning the the UK to play for Newcastle and Birmingham after leaving the blue half of Glasgow in 2006 when his contract with the club expired.
Rangers will now be looking forward to life under new manager Pedro Caixinha, who will take charge of his first game against struggling Hamilton next week.
Graeme Murty managed his final game in caretaker charge of the club as the incoming Portuguese boss looked on from the stands at Celtic Park.
In the six games Murty took charge of, Gers won just one league match and have seen themselves lose ground on second-placed Aberdeen in the league standings.
However there will still be chance for Caixinha to earn silverware in his first season at Ibrox as Murty managed to secure the club’s place in the Scottish Cup semi-final, where they will meet Celtic again.
