Sport: Rangers player John Lundstram noted negatively on two occasions in Saturday’s defeat. He first scored an unfortunate own goal after 38 minutes before he was sent off in overtime of the 1st half for an ugly tackle.

Matthew O’Riley sent Celtic into the lead just before Lundstram’s own goal, while Cyriel Dessers reduced the deficit for Rangers before the break. There were no goals after the break.

Celtic lead the league by six points ahead of Rangers with two games to play. Only a real collapse can prevent Celtic from taking their third straight title triumph in the league.

Rangers have 55 titles, but have only won once in the last twelve years. Not since 1984/85 has a team other than Celtic or Rangers won the series. Then Aberdeen took their fourth title with the legend Sir Alex Ferguson as manager.
