Celtic suffered a Glasgow Derby defeat after an extremely frustrating and shambolic 2-1 loss to Rangers at Paradise for the first time in nine years.

Celtic were given a penalty after Nikola Katic continuously tugged Christopher Julien’s jersey on a corner kick. Ryan Christie stepped up, putting it with decent pace, but a good height for Alan McGregor to make the save in the 33rd minute.

Minutes later, Ryan Kent fired Rangers ahead with a clinical finish as it nicked the post on its way in. Celtic leveled things in the 41st minute after Callum McGregor’s shot deflected off Odsonne Edouard and went beyond a helpless Alan McGregor.

Rangers restored their advantage on a corner kick after a terrific delivery from Borna Barisic and buried by the head of Nikola Katic in the 56th minute. Alfredo Morelos was shown a red card in the dying moments after seeing a second yellow for simulation.

A disaster for Celtic gives tremendous title hopes to Rangers as it was their first win at Celtic Park in nine years. Steven Gerrard’s side have it all to fight for in the title race, which should push Celtic as well.

Both Celtic and Rangers now enter the winter break as the top two sides in Scotland, Celtic two points above Rangers, but they do have a game in hand with both sides returning to action in the Scottish Cup on January 17/18th.
