"But I think we are getting closer and the players that the manager has brought in have been together for two, three months". It's actually a foul in the fourth official's book as well because he's shouting down the mic, "Foul, foul, foul".

Rangers defender Connor Goldson says he thought playing against Celtic would be equivalent to taking on Barcelona, having been told that there is a big gap in quality between the Glasgow sides. "It's frustrating that it's a clear foul".

"It means we can get on the training ground, we can work and we can drill the players as we haven't really had much time to train, to work and to improve the players". "We have got to go on another run now".

"I think he's lashed out", Gerrard conceded.

They were drawn in Group C for this year's group stage of the tournament, alongside PSG, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade. Spurs will desperately hope to have qualification wrapped up before travelling to the Nou Camp on December 11.

Gerrard made two changes from Russian Federation with Borna Barisic and Kyle Lafferty coming in for Jon Flanagan and Daniel Candeias.

He would return to that Celtic Park dressing room defeated, but only after he had waited for the match officials at the tunnel entrance to release more fume into an already febrile atmosphere. "Our only complaint is not scoring one or two more".

Rangers opened promisingly with Scott Brown receiving the first yellow card of the afternoon for a tenth minute foul on Lafferty.

But his behaviour and motivation on court changed after this moment and then he dominated the match", Herbert said. Bouchard eventually made her way onto court, only to be bounced 6-4 6-3 at the hands of Marketa Vondrousova.

Moments later, Celtic hit the crossbar twice in the space of a manic minute. The 20-year-old, who is on loan from Liverpool, has made a decent start to his Gers' career but he was off the pace throughout at Celtic Park, and was guilty of not tracking back when Olivier Ntcham picked up the ball to score the only goal of the contest.

Gerrard was furious that what he perceived as a foul on Ryan Jack was allowed to go unpenalized by Rogic it looked like a 50-50 challenge. Here, they had hit the crossbar three times in the same timeframe, but had otherwise only once found a way to stretch a Rangers back four - which included three new faces (and six overall) to a fixture not always kind on newcomers, particularly those as young as the ones representing Rangers. Celtic broke quickly to the other end with Forrest squaring for Ntcham to turn the ball home.

McGregor then pushed an Ntcham free-kick past his near post for a corner which came to nothing.

Sixty seconds later however Alfredo Morelos nearly produced an equaliser out of thin air when he overpowered Dedryck Boyata on the left only to see his angled drive turned wide by Craig Gordon.

Time eventually ran out on a Rangers side who arguably offered their opponents too much respect whilst also surely feeling the effects of that long and tiring journey to Russian Federation.
