Steven Gerrard‘s first taste of the Old Firm Derby is quite sour.
Rangers were well-drilled in its visit to Celtic Park on Sunday, but Olivier Ntcham‘s 62nd minute goal extended Celtic’s unbeaten derby run into an eighth season.
The match was full of fouls, hard tackles, and struck cross bars, as both teams threatened the goal but Celtic controlled play.
The win moves Celtic to 3-1 on the season, three points back of leaders Hearts. Rangers are now seven points back of first.
Ntcham is a former Man City player, and capped off a tremendous counter attack to put Celtic in front. Tom Rogic started the play on the edge of the Celtic area, and both Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest played parts in setting up Ntcham.
