As Celtic knocked the ball around in defence during the second half, Tyler spoke of the demise of “old Rangers”.

He said: “The history of Scottish football as you know it.

“The demise of the old Rangers and the demotion to start again as a new club and finally got themselves back to make the Old Firm games, which were badly missed.”
