Defender blow could be massive: Three things learned about Rangers in defeat v Celtic

Rangers struggle to break packed defences down

When the game was open and both sides were trying to get forward, the Gers found the space to get in behind the Celtic defence and create chances but when they parked the bus after Simunovic’s red card the Light Blues couldn’t break them down.

The Ibrox side lost their composure when Celtic put everyone behind the ball and struggled to make their numerical advantage count and secure their first league win against their bitter rivals in six years.

The only gilt-edged chance the Light Blues did create after the red-card was squandered when Alfredo Morelos somehow fired against the post from point blank range before the ball fell nicely for Celtic keeper Scott Bain.
