Rangers Lose to Celtics

Steven Gerrard as Rangers manager has been busy with this team in the Scottish Premiership lately. His team suffered a loss in the Sunday match at 2-1 and they lost out to the Celtic team. This has made the title of Scottish Premiership slip from their grasp even further.

Two men from Gerrard’s team were sent off as Glasgow derby won with fieriness in their performance. Alfredo Morelos was given a red card, his fifth for the season when there was an off-ball incident during the first half at Brown. Andy Halliday was also given a yellow card; two in the game, when the two-player teams go into a scuffle even after the final whistle was blown.

Gerrard felt that Brown was one of the Celtic players who played brilliantly against his team. He is a veteran player of his side, having played for many derbies of the Old Firm. He is a Scotland international as well and is known to get into the battle’s heat. He was in action in this game as well. He said something that provoked Morelos the striker who then elbowed him and was sent off the field. He was also part of the scuffle that led to Halliday getting booked for the second time.

For the above reasons, Gerrard stated that Brown was the main reason that his team lost out and three players were booked and handed cards. It also goes to show the strategies of the Celtic team who are not afraid to stir up the heat. It definitely requires Gerrard to look into helping his players know how to handle such situations and keep their cool, even as they play ball and have to take instant decisions. It is no easy task but can definitely help his team showcase better performance in the forthcoming matches.
