Scotland’s two giants renewed their famous rivalry in an edgy Old Firm derby this afternoon, the fourth of five this season.

Clint Hill found an 88th minute equaliser to put an end to Brendan Rodger’s winning run in the Parkhead hotseat.

It was to be the final game of Rangers’ interim manager Graeme Murty with Portuguese boss Pedro Caixinha taking over from next week. Murty had been in charge ever since Mark Warburton left his post last month.

Celtic took the lead after 35 minutes with a brilliant strike from Stuart Armstrong rifling past Wesley Foderingham. The Bhoys threatened to add further to their lead before half-time but as the sides went in at the break, it was still just 1-0.

Martyn Waghorn, having spurned the best chance of the first half, couldn’t make the most of another glorious opportunity with Craig Gordon managing to block his close-range volley.

The visitors continued to search for a winner and veteran Clint Hill bundled home the equaliser after Gordon parried away a shot from the edge of the box.

There was more drama to come with Celtic denied a clear penalty just seconds later as Leigh Griffiths was brought down in the box.
