  • Moussa Dembele- Moussa Dembele's social media activity has attracted attention

"I think we came out in the second half and we played football, it was an even game and their fans were starting to get a little bit edgy, which was what we wanted then the goal just kills everything".

The champions are now second in the Premiership - three points behind Hearts - and four clear of Rangers, who have won just one of their opening four games, after this loss and stalemates at Aberdeen and Motherwell.

Mark Warburton's first derby, in ended in a 5-1 defeat at Celtic Park.

As he prepares his Rangers side for their first collision with Celtic under his management, Steven Gerrard has the benefit of first-hand exposure to the task posed by his former mentor, Brendan Rodgers.

"The referee cost us", he said, referring to what he felt was a foul on Ryan Jack by Tom Rogic.

"He's [the fourth official] shouting "foul, foul, foul" down the mic [to the referee]", the former Liverpool man told Rangers TV.


The 23-year-old Scotland worldwide went down on the edge of the Rangers penalty box on 85 minutes, with the referee subsequently booking Goldson.

Having taken his first managerial role this summer, Gerrard had gone unbeaten in his first 12 games in charge of Rangers.

Speaking after the game, Brown was in defiant mood about the result: "From start to finish, we dictated".

"We showed a calmness to play round them and play through them".

Ultimately only the three points matter, but another heavy defeat could have been a critical blow in the early stages of Steven Gerrard's career at Rangers.

"On the end of a busy week, in what has been a busy pre-season, it was an outstanding performance and there's a lot more to come from the squad".
