Steven Gerrard suffered his first defeat as Rangers manager as Celtic ran out deserved 1-0 winners in the first Old Firm derby of the season.

In the 62nd minute, Hoops midfielder Tom Rogic tangled with Ryan Jack, leaving the Light Blues player prostrate, before racing up the park where midfielder Olivier Ntcham finished off the move for the 1-0 win.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard appears dejected after the final whistle.

"I am not going to say they are not a good team".

"There have been games where things haven't gone for us but we will continue to grow, we have people coming back from injury, and we have quality on the bench too".

"I thought we performed exceptionally".

Gerrard has been backed with 15 new signings over the summer, with Northern Irish worldwide Gareth McAuley set to become the latest addition. "We were the dominant team from start to finish", he said.

Rangers have now not won a league derby since March 2012.

"Second half we were a lot better", Gerrard said. "Our only complaint is not scoring one or two more".

ODSONNE EDOUARD will lead the Celtic attack against Rangers at Parkhead in the High Noon shoot-out.

With just 800 visiting fans amongst a packed Celtic Park housing 58,865 spectators, the atmosphere was certainly different from previous encounters between the two great rivals - but nevertheless the electricity and tension around Celtic Park remained much as before.

Four minutes later Ryan Jack dispossessed the Celtic Captain just outside the area and sent in a right-foot shot from twenty yards that was just over. And he is hopeful that given more time to gel and prepare, having arrived back in Glasgow in the early hours of Friday morning from a Europa League trip to Russia, Rangers will be in a better position to strike back when the sides meet again at the end of December.

Celtic's James Forrest rocked the crossbar with a 30-metre effort in the first half, while Mikael Lustig was also denied by the woodwork when he nodded against the post from a corner.
