Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers says they’ve taken a big step towards retaining their Scottish Premiership title – but it’s not wrapped up yet.
The leaders are nine points in front of nearest rivals Rangers after the 3-2 win at Ibrox.
With his side still having a game in hand, Rodgers says he saw encouraging signs for the remainder of the campaign in the Old Firm derby.
“We played well in the game – but we showed the toughness and character you need and in fairness to Rangers – they’d been in really good form so they came into the game at the height of their confidence levels – so for us to go on and win the game and win it with ten men was really an immense performance.”
Meanwhile, Rangers boss Graeme Murty feels his side squandered the chance to apply pressure on Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic.
But Murty has given a clear message to his players:
“Every single person and probably their dog will tell us everything that they’ve done wrong – and all the fundamental things that are wrong with the football club – and obviously we can’t let one bad result wash away all the good work up until this point.”
