Sky Sports TV pundit and former footballer Graeme Souness reacts as he is interviewed during Day Ten of the 2020 William Hill World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace on December 22,...

Rangers recorded their first win at Celtic in nine years on Sunday.

Rangers Manager Steven Gerrard celebrates at full time during the Ladbrokes Premiership match between Celtic and Rangers at Celtic Park on December 29, 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Graeme Souness brilliantly claimed that 'this is a job that gets to you' as he watched Steven Gerrard celebrate in a wild fashion after Rangers secured a dramatic win over Celtic on Sunday.

Rangers hadn't won at Celtic in nine years, and only recently, they were beaten in the League Cup final, which they would have deemed unlucky from their part.

But they produced arguably their best performance under Gerrard since he joined the club, as they closed the gap at the top of the table to two points. 

 

Speaking to Sky Sports Premier League (29/12/19 at 3:00 pm), Souness shared a comment that many would perhaps agree with as he watched Gerrard's passion explode on the Parkhead pitch. 

"That is a job that gets to you," Souness told Sky Sports.

Souness wasn't the only one reacting to Gerrard's celebrations, as former England striker, Gary Lineker, sarcastically claimed on his personal Twitter that he thinks that Gerrard is 'quite pleased' with that win against their Old Firm rivals: 

After that dramatic match, Scotland will hibernate and enter into a winter break, where a big month awaits both Old Firm duo.

The transfer window is set to open next month and both Rangers and Celtic will be looking to bolster their squads in one way or another. 

Whether they go down the road of securing permanent signings or loan signings, competition, depth and just general quality will be needed as the Premiership title race is seemingly heading to the last day of the season.
