One-sided affair proves a sobering experience for cool, composed Steven Gerrard

Mark Warburton's first derby, in ended in a 5-1 defeat at Celtic Park.

The win takes Rodgers' side up into second place, while Rangers sit seventh.

For Rangers, though, it was the first defeat under Gerrard and one which left their manager very unhappy.

The former Liverpool and England captain, who worked under Rodgers at Liverpool, admitted Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor was fortunate not to be punished for flicking a leg at Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer in the first half.

He said: "We have got quality all over the park".

Replays seem to confirm that Jack, in fact, slipped.

Gerrard said: "It's definitely a foul".

RANGERS manager Steven Gerrard yesterday claimed referee Willie Collum wrongly ignored the advice of fourth official John Beaton before Celtic broke to score their victor in a feisty Premiership derby at Parkhead.

The homeowner was "awaken by their doorbell", police said. "The female is confirmed to be safe and with family". Initially, police were unable to identify her, and she didn't match the descriptions of any missing persons.

It may very well be a different story when these two clubs next meet in December - when Rangers will not have travelled overseas for a fortnight, will have just shy of 50,000 of their fans behind them and will, in all likelihood, be a far more cohesive unit after half a year together.

The 38-year-old didn't share that assessment, saying he felt his players 'grew into the game'.

Despite not having the best game of his career, Gerrard kept the Liverpool youngster on the pitch throughout the game, but the midfielder could not come up with the inspirational moment that was needed to have a positive impact on the match.

"The first half, we didn't make enough passes even though our shape was OK but I feel we've been done by a refereeing decision".

Speaking after the game, Brown was in defiant mood about the result: "From start to finish, we dictated". Steven will expect his team to get better as the season goes on. The scoreline doesn't really reflect our dominance. That he had not played in three weeks showed.

That clearly played a part in the Rangers display, and it might be that the occasion was a little too big for one or two of their youngsters.

McGregor stood no chance with the Frenchman's goal, while Leigh Griffiths clipped the outside of the post late on as Celtic move within three points of early league leaders Hearts.
