Celtic turned in a woeful display at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon as they were beaten 1-0 by bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers.

The Bhoys were into the game having not lost to Rangers in the league since 2012, and had already beaten Steven Gerrard's side 1-0 earlier this season.

However, Brendan Rodgers' men were dreadful at Ibrox, and were on the back foot in the first half as Rangers had a host of chances to take the lead.

 

The goal did come on 30 minutes though, as fine work from Ryan Kent down the left saw Ryan Jack score, with the aid of a deflection from Scott Brown.

Rangers were gritty and determined, and whilst Celtic did create a couple of openings, they stood firm and claimed all three points.

Celtic must now accept that they are very much in a title race, with Rangers level on points with them at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

A number of Bhoys players struggled at Ibrox, but it's fair to say that few disappointed quite as much as midfielder Olivier Ntcham, just months after he was the goal hero in the 1-0 win over Rangers at Parkhead.

On Saturday though, the Frenchman was anonymous in midfield and outplayed by Jack, wit fans calling him atrocious and pathetic, urging the club to sell him to Porto if the Portuguese side are still keen whilst even joking that he should be investigated for match-fixing because he was so bad.
