What Celtic fans said

@McNallyMirror: “How did Celtic only win one of the most one-sided Glasgow derbies by just 1-0? Totally dominated the game from start to finish, rattled the bar 3 times & were even more dominant than the 4-0 & 5-0 routs. Gerrard’s first defeat could & should of been a monumental thrashing.”

@SeanMcBride11: “Back in your box.”

@Lord_Gardiner: “Non contest, both clubs are a million miles apart. 11 men back at corners = no outball, 11 men behind the ball = no game plan, a huge fan of Gerrard as a footballer but horrendous tactics as a manager.”

@90MinuteCynic: “They were supposed to challenge - they didn’t. Rodgers supposed to be finished - he isn’t. Celtic in crisis - they aren’t.”

What Rangers fans said

@JordanC1107: “Poor performance from Rangers. Could have been another horror show on a different day - a refereeing mistake doesn’t mask that. Think Gerrard got his personnel & gameplan wrong. Don’t think fatigue came into it too much. We only started playing once 1-0 down. Mental block there.”

@Callum_TH: “Celtic away after playing in Central Asia with nine men is a hard game and they ssssscccrrraped it. We’ll skoosh this. We will.”

@jamiecurrie89: “We’ve lost.. cool heads and re-group. It was awful but I fully expect the scattergun to come out.”

@ibroxrocks: “Think Thursday took too much out of us. No complaints about result, poor performance.”

What journalists said

@mrandrewdickson: “Better team won although the winner should never have happened after the foul on Jack. Collum had a decent game otherwise but big mistake there and it made a difference. Rangers looked like a team that played in Russia on Thursday night, break in play very much needed.”

@dougie_wright: “Boyata man of the match for me there. One mistake against Morelos but utterly dominant otherwise.”

@jaydeemorgan: “Scoreline might not have been emphatic but on this showing Celtic have answered the question emphatically over whether Rangers have closed the gap.”

@Hannahnaman: “The better team won today. Relief for Celtic hierarchy after the debacle of the transfer window. Proof for the Rangers hierarchy that much work lies ahead of them. Two points from three away games in the Premiership so far. Ntcham looks the best player in the land at the moment.”

The jokes

@SuperStevoe: “Steven Gerrard has drop 7 points out of 12 but did you see him shaking the players hands after the game. Quality. Sheer class.”

@ShaughanM: “Really can’t see Rangers challenging Hearts this season.”

@Oldfirmfacts1: “Willie Collum silencing claims of bias by awarding s***e decisions against BOTH teams.”

@SMTID: “Managerial hotshot Steven Gerrard only has two more points than Alan Stubbs...”

@Oldfirmfacts1: “Sky Sports continuing to discuss the game as if there’s a single Celtic fan who hasn’t muted it while watching the Rangers TV commentary on repeat.”

@bazzabannan25: “When are the rangers coming???”
