Rangers VS Celtic Live

RANGERS face Celtic in the first Old Firm clash of the season today (12noon) and Express Sport is here to bring you all the updates from the crunch tie.

Rangers failed to beat Celtic in six attempts last season but head into this Old Firm clash in confident mood.

They are unbeaten in five outings (W3 D2) and edged Patrick Thistle 3-1 after extra time in the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday night.

Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha is adamant his side can take apart rivals Celtic today and narrow the gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership to two points.

Brendan Rodgers sees things differently, however, and has stuck with Patrick Roberts over James Forrest as the man to inspire Celtic today.

Rodgers has a wealth of talent to choose from at Celtic and they have so far cruised to the top of the table in this early stage of the season.

Rangers vs Celtic kicks off at 12noon.

56: SAVE! A big chance goes begging for Rangers there. Miller heads a set-piece back across goal and it falls to Morelos, who heads towards the net. But Gordon makes himself big to get a shoulder on the effort and the Hoops defence scramble it away.

51: We’ve a bit of a delay here as the stewards deal with a flair that’s been thrown onto the pitch from the Celtic end.

A couple of sandbags on the thing and it’ll soon burn itself out.

Rangers use the time to bring Miller on for Pena.

50: GOAL! Finally Celtic take the lead. A corner isn’t dealt with by Rangers and the ball is recycled back into the box. It squirms through a forest of legs and falls to Rogic, who lashed home left-footed into the roof of the net.

Rangers must come forward now. This game is hopefully going to get interesting.

46: We’re back underway at Ibrox and again Celtic have come out of the blocks better. Sinclair gets to the by-line and cuts back form Griffiths but his shot is deflected wide. Surely we’re not in for another 45 minutes of this.

STATS: Celtic have had the lion’s share of pretty much everything at Ibrox so far…

Possession: Rangers 43% – 57% Celtic

Shots: Rangers 1-8 Celtic

Shots on target: Rangers 0-3 Celtic

Corners: Rangers 1-4 Celtic

Fouls: Rangers 5-5 Celtic.

But this is the one that counts:

Score: Rangers 0-0 Celtic

HALF TIME: What a frustrating half for Celtic there, who wasted a flurry of chances to take the lead.
