STEVEN GERRARD has vowed Rangers "will be better" next time his players line-up in an Old Firm derby after seeing his side defeated 1-0 at Parkhead today.

Celtic completely dominated the first half, going close to securing the opening goal through James Forrest.

Victory moved Celtic up to nine points, three behind leaders Hearts who have a 100 percent record from four matches played.

It was a tough win, but Celtic once again got the better of their bitter rivals, extending their unbeaten run against Rangers to 10 in the Scottish Premiership.

The quality between the two teams is, clearly, still evident - Rangers still have an terrible long way to go to return to their glory days, but today we saw that Gerrard has at least closed the gap, even slightly.

Celtic skipper Scott Brown picked up an early booking from referee Willie Collum for a foul on Kyle Lafferty and there was some controversy in the 25th minute when Rangers goalkeeper McGregor, after punching clear a Callum McGregor free-kick, appeared to kick out at Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer who fell to the ground but play carried on.

It's a wonderful moment to actually get to play at a high level, to play professional football, so that's what I'm happy about. The crowd for Friday's match was about four times bigger than the average home attendance the Mariners attracted last season.

"Some players will go away on global duty, and we hope they come back healthy".

Allan McGregor (Rangers): Was well protected by his defence but the Rangers shot-stopper was alert when called upon, making a number of fine saves to keep his side in the game. Subs: Griffiths 7, Sinclair, Christie 6. Subs: Middleton 5, Candeias 5. Replays show Rangers' Jack got the slightest of touches with his head which may have proved crucial.

A huge upturn in form under the guidance of the Liverpool legend has led to increased optimism for the campaign ahead and plenty of belief that Rangers could topple Celtic at the top of the pile, following an unconvincing start for the defending champions.

Fortunately for Brendan, a quick counter-attacking move finished off by Ntcham was enough in the end. But was there a foul in the build-up?

They dominated the game's entirety right up until their match-winner through Ntcham in the 62nd minute, and prior to that strike Rodgers must have felt like it wasn't Celtic's day.
