Rangers cruise past depleted Celtic to move clear at top

That's no real excuse for such a dismal performance though, as Celtic fell to a couple of Connor Goldson goals at Parkhead.

With Rangers now four points ahead of their title rivals despite playing one game more than Celtic, the ex-Liverpool captain said his team would stay on the ground for the title after registering two consecutive league wins at Celtic Park For the first time since 1995. I don't think we were at our best, but we came here and controlled the game with and without the ball.

The 24-year-old, who was named the Gers' Young Player of the Year last season, has been in fine form for Steven Gerrard's men in the current campaign, scoring one goal in three games before suffering the injury problems.

"We could maybe have scored more", he added.

Celtic had a good chance to equalise on 14 minutes but Mohamed Elyounoussi shot over when through on goal.

We offered nothing and while our rivals deserved the win, they didn't do anything outstanding; effective and efficient, carried out their tactical jobs well and got the goals they needed.

Lennon pointed to his lack of options with James Forrest also out injured, while Albian Ajeti and Leigh Griffiths were not match fit.

"We don't have Ajeti fully fit, Griffiths not fully fit, Edouard out, three main strikers are initially missing today". The two first-half strikes were enough to decide the contest.

Earlier, the Scottish league said it would investigate after St Mirren's latest positive virus test led to the postponement of their clash with Motherwell.
