Rangers put on a dominant display in the 415th Old Firm Derby as they beat Celtic by a solitary goal to move level on points with the defending champions, who still have a game in hand. The home team scored at the half hour mark when Ryan Jack found the net after a fine build up play.
A one-sided first half was the result of a tireless effort put in by the midfield trio of Scott Arfield, Ross McCrorie and the goalscorer Ryan Jack, who just didn’t allow their rivals to have any kind of passing game going at Ibrox.
The fight put in by Gerrard’s players was clearly highlighted by Scott Arfield’s vigour and determination to win a drop ball during the game. The Canadian was seen leaning in whilst on his toes to win possession from the drop ball.

Arfield, who moved to Scotland in the summer after a 5 year stint with Burnley, has been quick to make his mark amongst the fans and after his moment of passionate display, he’s likely to be liked even more.
