This is the second time in a row that the Rangers have won on Celtic Park. At the end of December 2019, Steven Gerrard’s team had ended more than nine years without an away win. It is also the first time since 2009 that the ‘Teddy Bears’ have won two Old Firms in a row.
Defender Connor Goldson scored twice (9th, 54th). In a game played behind closed doors, the Englishman opened the scoring with a header from a free kick before sealing the victory of his dominating team at the start of the second half.
In the standings, the Rangers are in the lead with five points and one game more than their opponent of the day.
Steven Gerrard’s troops are now turned towards the Europa League. The Scottish club chose not to train on the lawn of Sclessin on Wednesday, the day before its entry into contention against Standard (18:55).
In addition to the Rangers, group D of the Europa League also includes the Portuguese from Benfica and the Poles from Lech Poznan, scorers from Charleroi in the play-offs.
