Celtic have lost an Old Firm derby to Glasgow rivals Rangers today. Well, kind of.

Rangers beat the Hoops 2-0 in a reserve game this afternoon, with Glenn Middleton scoring twice for Graeme Murty's side.

It was a big victory for the Ibrox side in the context of the Reserve League, and two more victories will bring them the title.

Celtic did have a couple of big-name talents in the first XI, like Anthony Ralston, Jack Hendry, Ewan Henderson, Mikey Johnston and Karamoko Dembele.

 

But Rangers were good value for their win and clean sheet at Firhill.

Of course, the Bhoys' senior side could be winning something far more important in a few weeks - the Treble Treble - and therefore some fans of the Parkhead side took this defeat with a pinch of salt.

Celtic's senior lads beat Aberdeen 3-0 on Sunday to move into the Scottish Cup final, potentially 90 minutes away from the Treble Treble.

Neil Lennon's side are 11 points clear of Rangers in the Premiership and realistically a successful Scottish Cup defence will bring about the third successive domestic treble.
