Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has taken to Twitter to react to the Old Firm stalemate on Saturday, and suggested that Rangers defender James Tavernier was the best player on the park at Parkhead.
The Gers went into the game with the Hoops looking for only their second positive result since their return to the Scottish Premiership, having lost six of their seven meetings since the start of last season.
But Graeme Murty's men - it was Murty who oversaw the team the last time that they avoided defeat against the Bhoys - held Celtic and were certainly good value for the point as Craig Gordon kept the home side in the game on a couple of occasions with some brilliant saves, while Alfredo Morelos will probably not reflect too fondly on his performance when it came to chances he had during the contest.
A number of those chances were created by Tavernier, and after the final whistle, Sutton took to social media to praise the right-back's display against Brendan Rodgers' men.

The performance will give Rangers plenty of confidence going into the winter break as, while Celtic had some excellent chances themselves, it was the visitors who often looked more likely to create that golden chance.
Their task will surely now be replicating that intensity when they are facing some of the other teams in the Scottish Premiership when they return from the winter break as they look to get themselves back into the top two in the top flight.
