Celtic and Rangers latest: Bhoys stars want improvement, Templeton finds excuse for Gers' display

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Callum McGregor admits improvement needed

Celtic's Callum McGregor admits that his side must up their performance levels from the ones which they showed in their 1-1 draw with Motherwall at the weekend.

The Bhoys were off the pace against Motherwall in the first half and McGregor has explained that they are working hard to improve. 

"It was pleasing to see that the second-half performance was better than the first as it was a bit slack and lacklustre,” McGregor said to the club's official website.

Deila slams first-half

Much like McGregor, Ronny Deila was very disappointed with his side's showing in the first half of their game against Motherwell at the weekend.

Deila felt the Bhoys were better in the second 45, but their start to the match cost them the win. 

"We had bad tempo, no passes forward and didn't break them down once in the first half. That's not good enough," he said to the Evening Express.

David Templeton blames pitch for poor display

Rangers star David Templeton says that the poor playing surface at Alloa was part of the reason that his side fell below expectations at the weekend.

The Light Blues were only able to get a draw in the league match, leaving them three points off the pace, but Templeton believes that Alloa's 3G pitch was one of the major contributing factors to their downfall.

"The plastic pitch at Alloa didn't help," he said to the Belfast Telegraph. "It was one of the older surfaces and was really sticky."

Rangers injury boost

Rangers have been given an injury boost by finding out that Nicky Clark has not dislocated his shoulder, the Express report. 

There were concerns that surgery may have been required on a problem which forced him off at the weekend, but it seems that the injury is not as bad as first feared.
