Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says Ibrox atmosphere holds no fear

Antonio JonesJan 01, 2017

On that occasion, a brace from Georgios Samaras separated the two teams, though Rangers still went on to win the league title by a solitary point.

After an underwhelming start to the season Rangers supporters were probably fearing the worst heading into their September showdown in the Premiership - and they were right to as their side were battered 5-1.

Eventually, Celtic got their goal in nearly a carbon copy of Miller's opener, with Scott Sinclair taking advantage of non-existant defending from Rob Kiernan to tap in at the back post.

"When you look at our team, if I'm being honest, I don't think that we've been blessed by match-winners", said the Rangers midfielder, Andy Halliday, with admirable candour. I just slipped when the second goal went in. "It was daft, so I couldn't walk, but I'm OK". "We understand the significance and the importance and the emotions involved in this game, and there is no doubt it will be a pleasure to deliver the type of performance that delivers the three points".

"We talked before the game about what would happen if we fell behind, about dealing with pressure and finding solutions". We came out the blocks, we were on the front foot and got the early goal which is always pleasing.

"As we have done many times before we will pay our respects on Saturday and remember sincerely those who lost their lives and all those others affected in the most tragic circumstances of 1971". "They were very good and we were poor in keeping the ball". They probably need four new players but they don't have the budget so they're bringing in players to get them back to a level. So we have to learn from this. "I would have thought Celtic was the same, but I will let him (Brendan Rodgers) comment on that".

Nicholas is full of praise for Rodgers and the job he is doing in bringing back the style to Parkhead which, he feels, was allowed to drift in the absence of Rangers from the Premier Division. We are second in the table, just got promoted previous year and we are second but of course we want to go higher.

He said: "It would be magnificent for the home support". And you saw after the 15, 20 minutes we were under the cosh, the crowd united then and had a reaction from the players. The backing we have received has been first class.
