Rangers claimed bragging rights on Saturday afternoon as they beat rivals Celtic 2-0 in the Old Firm derby.

The Gers made the short trip across Parkhead to take on a Celtic side without Hatem Abd Elhamed, Nir Bitton, Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard.

Celtic felt those absences, but that’s not take anything away from a Rangers side who bossed the game in its entirety.

Steven Gerrard’s men showed great patterns of play in the final third and looked like a side with great understanding; attributes that Celtic simply did not show.

Two Connor Goldson goals sealed the win for Rangers, as the centre back headed home the opener before scrambling home a second after the break.

There were many outstanding displays for Rangers, but midfielder Glen Kamara continued his superb form with another quality showing.

The Finland international ran the show in the Rangers midfield, and fans took to Twitter to hail him as ‘outstanding’, ‘superb’ and ‘absolutely brilliant’.

Others called him ‘untouchable’ and a ‘Rolls Royce’ in midfield, with many celebrating that he cost just £50,000 in a ‘bargain’ move.
