Steven Gerrard's side were impressive in large parts of the game, taking the game to Celtic and creating a whole host of chances, with Alfredo Morelos testing Fraser Forster on a number of occasions.

 

The ball just wouldn't go in for Rangers, and Celtic made them pay as Christopher Jullien turned in the only goal of the game, before Jeremie Frimpong was sent off for hauling down Morelos inside the area.

Morelos stepped up to take the penalty, but Forster saved his effort once again, handing Celtic a 1-0 win and the Scottish League Cup yet again.

Rangers can take some positives from the game, but the performance of winger Ryan Kent will go down as a major disappointment.
