CELTIC 1 RANGERS 1

By Bill Heaney

If there was as much happening outside Celtic Park in Glasgow today as there was inside then that’s something for which we should all be grateful.

It should keep lid on the sectarian violence, domestic abuse, spread of Covid-19 and so much else that blights 21st century Scotland.

Celtic and Rangers drew 1-1 with Celtic taking the lead with a brilliantly headed goal from Mo Elyanousi and Rangers equalising through a brave header from Freddie Morelos, for his first goal in 15 games against the Parkhead side.

It was all pretty dull and dreadful stuff. Celtic’s interim manager John  Kennedy will now almost certainly be ruled out as successor to the controversial Neil Lennon since he showed little or no imagination in his team selection and tactics.

Rangers’ manager Steven Gerrard had a quiet day following the Slavia Prague match on Thursday and the aftermath of the Dundee United v Celtic match the previous Sunday, as did most of his players.

The man of the match today was the veteran Rangers’ goalkeeper Alan McGregor, pictured left, who had a couple of fine saves. This was not a game to write home about.
