A solitary goal by midfielder Olivier Ntcham was enough to hand Celtic a well deserved victory over Rangers in the first Old Firm derby of the season.
The scoreline did not reflect Celtic’s dominance as the Bhoys rattled the crossbar thrice and were also kept at bay by goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who pulled off a string of outstanding saves to keep Gers in with a chance.
Rangers improved later in the game and striker Alfredo Morelos had their best opportunity to equalize but he ended up shooting straight at Craig Gordon.
In the end, the vast gulf of class between the two teams was clearly visible as the hosts kept putting immense pressure on their bitter rivals throughout the match.
The score might not be the best indicator of the nature of the game, but a photo that managed to capture some of the players’ reactions comes pretty close to summing up the night.
