Rangers picked up a well-earned 1-1 draw at Old Firm rivals Celtic on Sunday afternoon, with Clint Hill bagging a late equaliser for the Gers.

Celtic went into the game with a remarkable record of 28 domestic wins in a row, and they looked to be heading towards number 29 when midfielder Stuart Armstrong smashed them into a 1-0 lead against Rangers from distance.

Rangers rallied in the second half, and after Craig Gordon blocked Martyn Waghorn's close-range effort from a Kenny Miller cross, the Gers did strike an equaliser in Graeme Murty's final game in caretaker in charge.

James Tavernier found Emerson Hyndman unmarked on the edge of the box, and after Gordon parried the American's drive, Clint Hill followed up to bring Rangers level and earn them a point at Celtic Park.

Hill did almost give away a late penalty for a challenge on Leigh Griffiths, but Rangers managed to claim the point they deserved for a valiant display against their bitter rivals, with midfielder Hyndman particularly impressing.

The 20-year-old playmaker is currently on loan from Bournemouth until the end of the season, and having hit three goals in six league games since his arrival, he was expected to be a key man for the Gers against Celtic.

Hyndman certainly impressed at Celtic, prompting fans on Twitter to hail his display, claiming he had a 'great game', and was the calm head on the ball when others around him were panicking on the big stage, tipping him for a huge future in the process.

The main message was urging Rangers to sign Hyndman permanently at the end of the season or renew his loan deal, as he's exactly the type of player Rangers have been missing – but whether Bournemouth would be willing to sell having only signed Hyndman from Fulham last summer remains to be seen.
