Rangers beaten by Celtic in Gerrard's first Old Firm derby

Goldson was keen to find the positives after Steven Gerrard's squad's first ever defeat, in a week where the Gers qualified for the group stages of the Europa League.

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.

For Rangers, though, it was the first defeat under Gerrard and one which left their manager very unhappy.

He said: "We have got quality all over the park".

Replays seem to confirm that Jack, in fact, slipped.

For me it's a foul and it's also a foul for the fourth official, who shouted down his mic 'foul, foul, foul.' The referee has ignored that advice.

BRENDAN RODGERS insisted Celtic's 1-0 win over Rangers at Parkhead this afternoon did not "reflect our dominance".

Gerrard set his team up to defend and Celtic duly dominated, tactics which have attracted criticism from many on social media.

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

"The goal happened when we were attacking and there is a foul in there, then they basically run from the edge of their box into ours with a free man".

"I thought we did well, we frustrated them, probably gave them a little bit too much respect in the first-half with our distances and let them have a bit too much of the ball".

The Gers boss opts for the experience of Allan McGregor between the sticks, while in defence the centre-back pairing of Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson get the vote to play. "We were the team looking for the equaliser". The scoreline doesn't really reflect our dominance.
