Rangers entertained Celtic at the Ibrox Stadium earlier this afternoon as they looked to earn a good result at home in the Scottish Premiership. The Gers made a quick start to the game and got themselves ahead in the fifth minute thanks to Todd Cantwell’s effort. John Souttar doubled his team’s advantage in the 34th minute when he scored with a firm header. The home team went into the half-time break 2-0 up on the scoreline.

Fashion Sakala put daylight between the two sides in the 70th minute when he found the back of the net as well. The contest ended with Rangers securing an impressive 3-0 win in front of their home fans.
