CRAIG GORDON: Yet another deadly quiet Old Firm afternoon for the Hoops number one - 6/10.

MIKAEL LUSTIG: Came out on top of his battle with Kyle Lafferty and only denied the opener when his instinctive header came back off the crossbar - 7.

DEDRYCK BOYATA: Still not back in the Hoops faithful’s good books after his AEK Athens no-show but, apart from one brief slip, barely faltered against Alfredo Morelos - 7.

KRISTOFFER AJER: The young Norwegian is still learning his trade but again showed his potential with a calm, controlled display - 7.

KIERAN TIERNEY: Blunted the threat of Ryan Kent as he forced the Ibrox winger back time and again with his bursts forward - 8.

SCOTT BROWN: Booked for early lunge on Lafferty but settled into his now traditional armchair role as he strolled through another derby battle - 8.

OLIVIER NTCHAM: The Frenchman capped off an excellent display as he finally found a way past Allan McGregor with his finish from a lightning-quick counter-attack - 9.

JAMES FORREST: Toyed with Borna Barisic at times before showing tremendous finesse to tee up Ntcham for the opener. Unlucky when a screamer of a strike rocked the crossbar - 8.

TOM ROGIC: He might not have grabbed his trademark Old Firm goal but the big Australian again showed what a classy operator he is with a string of lovely touches - 8.

CALLUM McGREGOR: Laid one on a plate for Odsonne Edouard as his combination work with Tierney caused Gers real headaches - 7.

ODSONNE EDOUARD: The responsibility of leading Celtic’s attack now rests with the £9million man following Moussa Dembele’s departure but wasted his big chance when he headed straight at McGregor - 6.

Substitutes

LEIGH GRIFFITHS (for Edouard, 66): Produced a couple of decent efforts at goal - 6.

RYAN CHRISTIE (for Rogic , 78): Lured Connor Goldson into a booking as he won a free-kick - 5.

SCOTT SINCLAIR (for FORREST, 90): On at the death - 5.
