Events elsewhere overshadowed the start of the game with both sides standing an refusing to ‘take the knee’ in the now customary anti-racism gesture.

When matters turned to football a smouldering start lit up after 23 minutes when Moi Elyounoussi gave the home side the lead – only to see the effort cancelled out by Alfredo Morelos’ 55th goal for Rangers and first in an Old Firm encounter.

Ryan Kent and Elyounoussi again were denied by great saves from Scott Bain and Allan McGregor as the tempo increased with half-time approaching.
