Steven Gerrard’s Rangers defeat Celtic to get the Whip Hand in the Scottish Premier League

The match day 21 of Scottish Premier League turned out be a huge one for Steven Gerrard and Rangers as they got an upper hand over their prime rivals Celtic. The Ibrox side defeated Celtic by 2-1 and showed the immense title credentials.

Nicola Katic fired a towering header on the 56 minute mark to win it for the Rangers.

Ryan Kent sent Gerrard’s team to a flyer but his goal was cancelled by  Odsonne Edouard. The equaliser from Celtic was a big setback for the visitors as it was penultimate clash for them if they wanted to stay in the title race.

Rangers were trying to make things happen while at the same time resiting the rogue waves dispatched byy Celtic’s front line. The breakthrough came from Rangers when Katic found the back of the net with an immense header.

It’s a first win for the Glasgow Rangers in nine years at Celtic Park. The win boasts an immense importance for Rangers and Steven Gerrard who look to land Scottish Premier League title this year.

The gaffer couldn’t hide his emotions after an historic win.

We showed that we’re big players and a big team collectively,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.

“Hopefully a lot of people will take notice of that performance. It’s a big win because this club hasn’t had much success here for a long time.

“It feels the best [win of his Rangers’ tenure] right now.

“But I don’t want to take anything away from the fact that we have just came out a Champions League level [Europa League] group to qualify for the last-32.

“We’ve come here and faced a really big challenge and a good team, and again we’ve dominated the majority of the game so the players deserve an awful lot of credit.”

“We’re always trying to move forward,”

“We know this is a big victory and a big moment but there’s a lot of work to do. We’ve improved, but it’s about building on this now; no complacency.

“We’re trying to create a team here with big players who don’t understand when they’re beaten.”
