Dominant Celtic strike on the counter against Rangers

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers suffered their first loss together at the hands of city rivals Celtic in his first dugout duel with Brendan Rodgers. A stubborn defensive display in the first half was followed by an altogether more expansive game in the second, though ultimately Celtic’s relentless pressure saw them record yet another victory against the Ibrox side. 

Comfortable European victory in Gerrard’s Rangers debut

Steven Gerrard made his managerial debut as his Rangers side took on FK Shkupi in their first Europa League qualifier.

Kilmarnock inflicted Celtic’s second defeat in as many months at Rugby Park on Saturday.

Just as significant is the manner in which his team have achieved such success, showing a level of organisation rarely seen in Scotland.
