Rangers Gates

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Deila pleased for Scepovic

Ronny Deila says that he always knew Stefan Scepovic would score and dropping him never went through his mind.

The tall striker has failed to impress since moving to Parkhead this summer, but notched in the Europa League last night against FA Astra and Deila was pleased the Serbian got off the mark.

"He’s always in front of the goal, smelling out chances and in the end he got a very good goal," Deila said to the Daily Record.

“I didn’t think he wasn’t going to score. That’s why I kept him on the pitch."

Johansen: Celtic in a strong position

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen says that the side are in a strong position after winning against FC Astra 2-1 last night.

Although the Belgian's side goal made things more tense than they should have been, the Bhoys extended their unbeaten run in the competition to move closer to making it through the groups.

"We should have killed the game off after my goal but they got a goal back, so there was unnecessary pressure at the end but the most important thing is the three points," he said to UEFA.com. "It leaves us in a strong position."

Mohsni still has a lot to prove

Former Rangers star Barry Ferguson believes that Bilel Mohsni still has a lot to prove.

The Light Blues midfielder has come under criticism after some erratic displays and Ferguson doesn't believe the Tunisian proved he's good enough to represent the 'Gers. 

"Mohsni still has to prove he’s a good Rangers player," he said to the Daily Record. "And there are some others who are still finding their feet."
