Another Heated Old Firm Derby as Celtic Beats Rangers

Steven Gerrard says he preferred playing Manchester United at Old Trafford rather than Anfield during his playing career

"I've gone above and beyond, I've backed Alfredo more than enough and I can't defend him anymore, is the reality".

The win extends Celtic's lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 13 points over their Glasgow rivals.

Celtic interim boss Neil Lennon came to the defence of Brown - who was seen laughing on the sidelines when Morelos made his way to the dressing room - and felt Rangers were lucky to finish the match with 10 men. He clashed with Ryan Kent after the winger put his side back on level terms.

However, Gerrard had sympathy for Halliday, who remonstrated with Brown after the Celtic midfielder celebrated in front of the 800 Rangers fans at the final whistle.

"You're playing against a player that loves to antagonise", said Gerrard.

Kent somehow escaped punishment for aiming a punch at Brown as Celtic celebrated their victor, which has put the title race firmly in their hands, and there were further scuffles after the final whistle, sparked by Brown, Bain and Andy Halliday.

Toni Kroos , Luka Modric and Varane also missed out on Madrid's squad , rested after training without issues on Saturday morning. Chelsea now sit in sixth in the Premier League , three points outside the Champions League places with eight games remaining.

Having paid a large fee for the player last season, there's a lot of pressure on the Frenchman's shoulders at Celtic but his 19 goal return is so far delighting supporters.

Alfredo Morelos picked up the red card right after the half-hour mark which meant the Gers had to play most of the game with 10-men.

The Celtic manager's invincible hardman Scott Brown conducted himself with all the class of a pub glassing today, and yet here he is bigging him up.

"Maybe (Halliday's red card) is deserved, but only if the guy who antagonised it from the beginning is punished as well".

When asked about the Kent incident, Brown said: "I can't even remember that".

Brown had clipped the heels of Morelos in the 31st minute and got the response he no doubt hoped for. "He's been elbowed in the face [by Morelos] and he's been punched or pushed in the face by Ryan Kent".
