Alfredo Morelos signs new Rangers deal on eve of Old Firm clash

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard

Seventh-placed Rangers have five points.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard told the club's official website: "I said we were talking about giving Alfredo a new deal and I am delighted to confirm we have now done exactly that". I've been around the game a very long time, and that's a foul in my book.

The home side started the second half as tenaciously as they had finished the first and in the 50th minute McGregor tipped a powerful long-range drive from Ntcham on to the bar before Celtic's McGregor gave away a foul in his attempt to get to the rebound. I wondered why he hasn't seen a clear swipe from Rogic on Jack. "For me, it was a blatant foul and if we get that, we could have come away with a point which would have been a satisfactory result." .

"If we'd lost the game with a moment of class or brilliance from Celtic I'd have held my hands up, but the referee's cost us for sure".

Celtic could count itself unfortunate not to have already been ahead as a spell of extreme pressure before half time saw both Forrest and Mikel Lustig strike the crossbar.

Although Rangers showed more attacking intent after the break, it was Celtic who took the lead on the hour mark. "We kept the ball better and we made passes and created a few decent openings". Steven [Gerrard] has done well getting them organised so we had to be patience.

"I've asked questions of this squad since the June 15 and we've closed the gap".

Victory moved Celtic up to nine points, three behind leaders Hearts who have a 100 percent record from four matches played. It is a chance for us to get [Lassana] Coulibaly fit, [Eros] Grezda fit and [Graham] Dorrans fit - players that will help us become better and stronger.
