The Old Firm clash between Rangers and Celtic on Sunday began at a frantic pace, with both teams scoring early on.
Rangers desperately need the win in order to close the gap on their bitter rivals and breathe some life into the Scottish Premiership title race, and made the best possible start when Josh Windass had them in front after with just three minutes on the clock. The attacker capitalised on a mistake in the Celtic defence to power past debutant goalkeeper Scott Bain.
However, this only served as a wake-up call to Celtic, and the sides were level again just eight minutes later. Tom Rogic, picking the ball up in space, took a few touches to bring the ball forward before unleashing a powerful, curling drive that gave Rangers keeper Wesley Foderingham no chance.
Currently wiping my eyes. I can’t work out if that was Tom Rogic or Philippe Coutinho?!

The energetic pace of the game has continued, and Rangers restored their lead midway through the second half, Daniel Candeias drilling the ball low past Bain after more uncertainty in the Celtic penalty area. 2-1 to Rangers at the time of writing.
