Celtic 1 Rangers 0: Ntcham inflicts Gerrard's first Rangers defeat

Frenchman Ntcham bagged the victor in the 62nd minute to end the Liverpool legend's unbeaten start to the season and move Brendan Rodgers' side three points behind league leaders Hearts.

He would return to that Celtic Park dressing room defeated, but only after he had waited for the match officials at the tunnel entrance to release more fume into an already febrile atmosphere.

'We still have a lot of work to do breaking away, it was very impressive'.

I spoke to him (the referee) and he disagreed but when he sees it (again) I think he will change his mind.

China's Xi says no to Africa 'vanity projects' as hosts major summit
While relations between China and African nations are broadly positive, concerns have intensified about the impact of some of China's deals in the region.

Gerrard, who expects to sign Northern Ireland defender Gareth McAuley when he returns from worldwide duty, said: "For me it is a foul and it is also a foul for the fourth official".

It arrived not only because of the speed of a counter-attack, but also because Jack was not around to disrupt Rogic's advance, having fallen on the edge of Celtic's penalty area under the challenge of the Australian. It's blatant. For me, it's 100 per cent a foul.

Allan McGregor had otherwise been outstanding, but in donkey kicking Kristoffer Ajer mid-way through the first half, the goalkeeper should have been sent off.

It may very well be a different story when these two clubs next meet in December - when Rangers will not have travelled overseas for a fortnight, will have just shy of 50,000 of their fans behind them and will, in all likelihood, be a far more cohesive unit after half a year together.

Griezmann: 'Messi and Ronaldo are on a different level'
These two Spanish clubs have won seven out of the last ten Champions League trophies, including five in a row. Cristiano Ronaldo has asked Juventus for at least three bodyguards to look after him and his family in Turin.

The 1-0 loss at Celtic Park, was the first time Gerrard has tasted defeat in the Rangers dugout in his 13 matches in charge. "Defensively, we were strong, we pressed the game well and had the courage and quality to play".

Celtic, meanwhile, had experienced a testing start to the season, losing to Hearts in the league and failing to qualify for the Champions League group stage, yet Rodgers's side was able to lift its performance for the Old Firm derby. Steven has done well getting them organised so we had to be patient.

That clearly played a part in the Rangers display, and it might be that the occasion was a little too big for one or two of their youngsters.
