Brendan Rodgers had his say on things after his Celtic side put in a ruthless performance to defeat Rangers at Ibrox.

The champions were a goal down after just three minutes thanks to a strike from Josh Windass, though they were level minutes later thanks to a superb goal from Tom Rogic.

Things took another turn as Daniel Candeias put the Gers 2-1 up with a tidy finish.

Some fine work by Moussa Dembele was topped off with a smart goal, as the sides went in at half-time level at 2-2.

Hoops defender Jozo Simunovic was sent off after an elbow to Alfredo Morelos was deemed punishable.

After some tactical changes and a switch in style, the Hoops went in front with a cool finish by substitute forward Odsonne Edouard.

The boss spoke to the media after full-time and gave his thoughts on losing a man, as well as highlighting the performances of two individuals in particular:

There was a lot of talk before the game but the guys kept their humility and came from behind twice to come up with a brilliant win.

I think when you come to one of your rivals and perform like we did and be up against it with 10-men for 30 minutes, then you’re entitled to celebrate. It was a great victory for us and I think we deserved it.

We have a plan when we go to 10-men and that was clear in the game. You could see what the players were doing while also having that goal threat. I thought they dealt with that final 30-minutes of the game really well and I’m very proud.

When we put two strikers on that made it two-versus-two on half a pitch and I’d always fancy Odsonne and Moussa Dembele in that situation against most centre-halves. They worked it brilliantly.

Edouard is one of the best young players I’ve worked with. He has everything, a good touch, speed, movement and work ethic. He has a natural inbuilt brain for football. I see it every day in training.

I’m delighted for Scott Bain. When we brought him in he’s been absolutely brilliant in training but, of course, for goalkeepers it takes something to happen for them to get an opportunity.

I thought his performance showed his nerve, his calmness and his agility, particularly when he makes the save and gets up again for the second one when it comes off the post.
