10-man Celtic bounce back to beat Rangers once more

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers during the Scottish Cup Quarter Final match between Celtic and Greenock Morton at Celtic Park

But Rangers have been a changed side under the Scot and now sit just six points behind Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership ahead of today's Old Firm derby.

"We gave him an idea last night that he would be playing but it was only officially this morning that we said, 'Listen, your first game for Celtic is at Ibrox".

"It was a great, vast performance", Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said.

"There was a lot of noise before the game, but that's natural - they've been on a good run and at home, thinking they could get the victory". It's a big step for us to go nine points clear with a game in hand, but we still have a lot of work to do.

Rangers led 1-0 and 2-1 through Josh Windass and Daniel Daneias, but Celtic found answers through Tom Rogic and Moussa Dembele before halftime. I thought we played well with 11 men.

The hosts were boosted when Jozo Simunovic received a straight red card for an apparent elbow on Alfredo Morelos but the Hoops went ahead for the first time thanks to substitute Odsonne Edouard's 69th-minute finish, two minutes after his introduction.

Brown will have taken great delight in the victory against a Rangers team who seemed to be extremely confident of victory.

"We have a plan when we go to 10 men, you could see what the players were doing and they dealt with that final 30 minutes really well".

"It tells you that they expect to win and their supporters expect them to win".

"We knew what we were going to do, we've top quality players on the park and scored some great goals".

"He has brought in one or two others". Celtic were forced to hand a debut to goalkeeper Scott Bain due to a late injury picked up by Dorus de Vries, and he too was to play a big part in helping the champions seal a record fourth straight win at Ibrox.

I thought his performance showed his nerve, his calmness and his agility, particularly when he makes the save and gets up again for the second one when it comes off the post.
