Rangers boss Steven Gerrard

Ultimately the old guard prevailed thanks to a Olivier Ntcham goal midway through the second half and Gerrard suffered the first defeat of his new career.

Celtic have struggled so far this season by their usual standards but looked back to their best at Parkhead this afternoon.

"We were the very dominant team for start to finish", he told reporters.

"Defensively, we were strong, we pressed the game well and had the courage and quality to play".

"The scoreline doesn't really reflect our dominance".

"It's an important three points for us".

Nothing can prepare you to the Midnight Yell at @TAMU I've been there tonight before their first game this season. Williams became the first true freshman in program history to surpass 1,000 rushing yards in 2016.

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has signed a new contract with the club on the eve of their derby clash with Celtic.

It was the first time former Liverpool boss Rodgers has come up against Steven Gerrard in the dugout.

And if that was bad enough, then Rangers soon found themselves down to 10 men after a moment of madness from Morelos, who first got needlessly booked for kicking the ball away.

The result leaves Rangers seventh in the SPL after four games, having drawn 3-3 with Motherwell, and 1-1 with Aberdeen, while also beating St Mirren 2-0.

Interest in the 23-year-old was first reported last week and Football Insider now states Gerrard will pull out all the stops to bring the defender to Ibrox, although Forest are said to be unsure on whether a move to Scotland is right for his development.
