Well that was some game.
Why do Rangers sign so many cheaty diving forwards. Morelos was bad enough but the new guy was a total embarrassment to the club today.
Celtic need to ditch their goalie ASAP.
Title still going to be a close run thing.
Jambos more or less tied up third spot with the win at St Mirren.
You do talk some 💩

Should have been 4 up at halftime and the penalty was the turning point. Beaton got the call correct the first time as Johnson clearly won the ball but VAR decided to leave that part out in the replay they showed to Beaton for some reason.
🤣.
How about the goal Rangers got cancelled. Right decision? Soft?

Thought Beaton was dreadful. The only big decision he got right was to book Silva for diving and he reversed that! Ignored the Goldson handball, ignored the blatant foul on Iwata in the build up to Desser's disallowed goal, despite the fact it was right in front of him. Booked Kuhn for persistent fouling despite the fact he hadn't committed a single foul previously! 23 fouls against Celtic (most of them innocuous), 10 fouls against Rangers.

I'd have taken a draw beforehand, but it was disappointing to concede so late on. Not sure the draw merited Rangers lap of honour though:D

We ran out of steam, Hatate run the show but was done after an hour, Mcgregor clearly not fit. However we've got 6 games left, 4 at home, while Rangers have 7 left, 5 away. I think we are in the box seat, very confident we will beat Rangers at Celtic Park with a much fitter midfield.

Lawrence never touched the ball, it was an obvious foul that Beaton should have got right as he was right there.

There was nothing “soft” about it, the player made zero contact with the ball and full contact with the player. Clear foul.

Couple of minutes later Lawrence goes right through the back of Hatate and no booking while he booked Kuhn for putting his hand on a Rangers players shoulder.

Thought Beaton was a disgrace and the fact he was even given the game by the SFA should be questioned why.

So a defender winning the ball (you can see he clearly redirects the ball) then an attacker taking 2 full steps and falling over the outstretched leg is having green tinted glasses on?

Maybe we should be questioning why the VAR replay left out the most of what happened and only showed the referee the half step before the attacker hits the defenders leg.

If that’s a penalty then you simply can’t make a challenge in the box since it doesn’t matter if you play ball first as the attacker just needs to run into you to get a penalty.

Rangers were poor yesterday and fortunate to get a point IMO. Celtic were good in the first half but terrible in the second. Two very ordinary sides but Rangers still in pole position just about. It's going to be really close.

TBH, I thought it was going to be all over at half time, then the penalty I bet at 7/1 as usual lol.
I especially enjoyed the 2nd half :D

Oh come on, the guy went down like he was shot on about 4 occasions, writhing about in absolute agony then jumps up, right as rain wither a foul is awarded or not.
Pathetic for an 'athlete'.
Agreed - the prat called Silva was a disgrace…what a cheating fool.

Mental game mind 👍

Anyway…and much more importantly…St Johnstone’s great win at Hibs sees them pull a few points clear of Ross County.

Record Online seem to have a written article on Rangers win at Dundee the other night.
Seemingly they had a rollover penalty from the week before. ;)

[BTW the game was cancelled.... for those south of Penrith.]
