Celtic have player SENT OFF just 26 minutes into Old Firm derby as Rangers star Alfredo Morelos nutmegs Scott Brown before scoring brilliant goal

Old Firm derbies rarely disappoint and Sunday’s game was no different with an incredible opening 30 minutes at Ibrox.

The title is all done and dusted with Rangers breaking Celtic’s nine-year dominance at the top of the Scottish Premiership, but that did nothing to dampen the feisty atmosphere on the pitch.

Alfredo Morelos scored a brilliant goal to put Rangers 2-1 up

The hosts took the lead just 26 minutes into the game when Kemar Roofe turned the ball into the net brilliantly with his chest.

After Allan McGregor had denied Bhoys ace Mohamed Elyounoussi, Roofe smartly guided Ryan Kent’s cross home.

Earlier in the move Glen Kamara was fouled by Callum McGregor, who picked up a second yellow card in less than three minutes, leaving Celtic with 10 men.

However, the Hoops were level in the 30th minute, Odsonne Edouard nodding in from close range after Kristoffer Ajer had headed David Turnbull’s corner back across goal.

Rangers were back in front in the 32nd minute when Morelos beat goalkeeper Scott Bain with a powerful left-footed shot.

The striker nutmegged Scott Brown, in the Celtic legend’s final Old Firm derby before joining Aberdeen, before lashing home.
