Premiership giants Rangers picked up a vital 2-0 victory against Celtic today, in a fixture that saw them go four points clear of their Old Firm rivals atop the league table. An early goal from centre-half Connor Goldson put the away side in the lead, before he picked up a brace with a scuffed finish later on. The Parkhead club were unable to have any sort of impact on the tie as they failed to register even a single shot on target. Gerrard’s men, despite not having too much possession, were the dominant side in the game, and at no point did they look like they were going to concede a goal.
Here Are The Rangers Player Ratings Vs Celtic:
Rangers Player Ratings Vs Celtic
Allan McGregor – 7
The veteran stopper didn’t have too much to do as the home side didn’t force him into making a single save. Collected well against crosses from wide and tried to release quickly as well.
James Tavernier – 8
The skipper was on top of his game defensively once again as he didn’t allow new signings Diego Laxalt the space required to have an impact. Picked up the assist for the Gers’ opener too.
Connor Goldson – 8.5
The big centre-half offered a dominant presence at the back and ensured that the Celtic attackers didn’t have too much space to work the ball into. Did well to score two key goals as well.
Filip Helander – 7
Didn’t do much wrong over the course of the ninety and made some important defensive contributions as well. Did lose Griffiths late on but looked rather composed with the ball at his feet.
Borna Barisic – 7
The Croatian didn’t have the impact he might’ve been hoping for in attack as the Celts kept hold of the ball for large chunks of the game. Did move it around with a good amount of confidence though.
Steven Davis – 7
The veteran midfielder conducted the play pretty efficiently whenever the Ibrox club had possession, but did give it away on a couple of occasions. Didn’t look too flustered by the pace of the game.
Glen Kamara – 8
The Finnish midfielder was on his game today as he made some vital touches in the midfield area. Picked up some vital positions and provided a constant passing option to his teammates as well.
Scott Arfield – 7
The midfielder made an important foul in the second half to ensure that the Celtic attackers were stopped in their tracks. Made some good forward runs but helped out at the back too.
Brandon Barker – 5
The speedster offered very little in terms of attacking quality tonight, as he wasn’t able to produce anything meaningful in the final third. Tried to make his presence felt but wasn’t able to do so.
Alfredo Morelos – 6
The Colombian’s Old Firm duck continued tonight as he wasn’t able to have the impact he might’ve been hoping for. Forced to go wide to get on the ball but worked hard in attack.
Ryan Kent – 7.5
The former Liverpool man had an excellent opportunity to score in the second half but his effort was cleared off the line by Celtic. Was at the heart of everything Rangers produced offensively though
Ryan Jack – 6.5
The Scot was thrown on in the second half as Gerrard looked to add a bit more muscle to the Gers’ midfield. Passed it around well and looked composed when defending too.
Cedric Itten – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
Joe Aribo – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
