Celtic won the first Old Firm Derby of the new season beating their arch-rivals 2-0 at Ibrox last weekend. And this loss means the Gers have now slipped to the second spot on the league table.

Odsonne Edouard scored the first goal of the match right after the half-hour mark and then it was Jonny Hayes who added the second deep into injury time.

And many believe this loss will be a big eye-opener for Steven Gerrard since everyone had been claiming that Rangers will be able to match up to Celtic in the Premiership this season.

Speaking about the derby, Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish has revealed the key pointers as to why the Teddy Bears had to suffer their first defeat of the 2019-20 season.

Dalglish wrote: “Rangers didn’t keep possession well enough, and they didn’t threaten Fraser Forster as often as they should have.

“Too many of them didn’t show up on the day. Steven has been criticised for his team selection and tactical formation.

“Why did Alfredo Morelos not start ahead of Jermain Defoe? Why was there no width in the team to really get at the Celtic full-backs?

“Listen, when a team loses a game and the fine detail starts to be analysed by supporters and media pundits, the players that have been left out automatically become better players.

“Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.

“No manager has the benefit of hindsight to use to his advantage after the final whistle has blown.

“Steven picked a team he felt was going to give Rangers the best possible chance of winning the game. But it just didn’t go to plan.

“Conversely, Neil Lennon’s team really impressed me during the 90 minutes at Ibrox.

“They played with a really high tempo and closed out the play. They then capitalised when Gers gifted them possession for the opening goal and hit them on the break to set up Jonny Hayes’ clincher.

“On that display, I can see them drawing no more than a couple of games here and there this season.

“Of course, they are not unbeatable and if they have an off day then some sides will be capable of taking advantage – providing that particular team is at the top of their game.”
