Rangers 1-0 Celtic: Brendan Rodgers suffers first Old Firm defeat


Midfielder Ryan Jack opened the scoring against Celtic after fine build-up play by Ryan Kent

Rangers moved level with Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership after inflicting Brendan Rodgers’ first defeat in 13 Old Firm games.

The home side dominated at a raucous Ibrox to defeat the reigning Scottish champions for the first time since April 2016.

Celtic remain in first place in the league on goal difference, and still have a game in hand over Rangers.

Ryan Jack scored the decisive goal during a one-sided first half.

The visitors were off the pace and were indebted to a string of excellent Craig Gordon saves for keeping them in the game.

Celtic did have a Callum McGregor goal ruled out for offside after the break, but could not fashion an equaliser.
