Youngster proving old boss wrong: Three things learned from Rangers loss v Celtic
COMMENT By James Black
Rangers lost Saturday’s Old Firm clash with Celtic 2-0 as the Hoops extended their unbeaten domestic run to a staggering 57 games at Ibrox.
Second-half goals from Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths were enough for Brendan Rodgers’ side as they won their third consecutive Old Firm since Pedro Caixinha took charge at Ibrox in March,
The sides were evenly matched in the first-half as Rangers tried to close the gap on their rivals to two points but poor defending handed Celtic both goals.
Caixinha’s side struggled in the second period as Celtic stepped up a gear and controlled the game ahead of the midweek trip to Belgium to face Anderlecht in the Champions League.
19-year-old defender Ross McCrorie made his full debut in an injury-hit Rangers starting XI, impressing fans and pundits alike, which takes us into the first of three things we learned from this afternoon’s Old Firm.
