Celtic v Rangers: Scottish Premiership – en directe! | Premiership escocesa


Celtic lead! The Rangers defence switches off, allowing Celtic to take a quick throw-in. The ball’s worked inside to the Rangers penalty area, where an unmarked Abada hits it low and first time. In the Rangers goal, Jon McLaughlin gets a big hand to the ball but is unable to prevent from trickling over the line.

With Real Madrid coming to town on Tuesday, today marks the start of a big few days for Celtic and Ange Postocoglou is lucky enough to have a full squad to choose from. Having rested several big names for Wednesday’s League Cup win over Ross County, changes are expected. Matt O’Reilly and Reo Hatate look likely to return to midfield, replacing Aaron Mooy and David Turnball. With Kyogo set to lead the line, Jota and Liel Abada are the most likely contenders to play either side of him.

Rangers play Ajax on Wednesday and Giovanni van Bronckhorst has several players sidelined, with defenders Filip Helander, Ben Davies and John Souttar all ruled out. Further up the field, Tom Lawrence, Kemar Roofe and Ianis Hagi are also injured, while Alfredo Morelos has missed Rangers’ past two games on the back of questions over his fitness and attitude. His manager confirmed yesterday that the Colombian will be in today’s matchday squad.

Esdeveniments clau

14 min: O’Riley intenta córrer cap a l’interior Rangers caixa però es troba amb una paret robusta de resistència blava en forma de Connor GOldson.

Amb el Rangers defensa atrapada als talons, Matt O’Riley va quadrar la pilota per a Liel Abada, el xut del qual realment hauria d’haver estat aturat per McLaughlin. Va aconseguir un lot de la mà a la pilota.

10 min: Rangers El migcampista John Lundstram rep un tiquet-off de l’àrbitre Nick Walsh per una dura entrada, però la targeta groga de l’àrbitre es queda a la butxaca de moment.

lider celta! El Rangers la defensa s’apaga, permetent al Celtic fer un servei ràpid. La pilota ha treballat a l’interior de l’àrea de penal dels Rangers, on un Abada no marcat la colpeja per primera vegada. A la porteria dels Rangers, Jon McLaughlin aconsegueix una gran mà a la pilota, però és incapaç d’evitar que es col·loqui per sobre de la línia.

6 min: Després d’aquest inici puntual, el joc torna a començar de debò, amb els dos bàndols encara sense reunir res que pugui suposar una amenaça a porteria.

El primer derbi Old Firm de la temporada és marxa!

1 min: Després d’una interpretació emocionant de You’ll Never Walk Alone per part dels aficionats locals, el joc comença. Rangers ha guanyat un servei aviat a prop de la línia de mig camí, però el davanter del Celtic Kyogo ja està rebent tractament per una lesió a l’espatlla.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “Les apostes sempre són altes en una empresa antiga”, va dir Rangers gerent. “”Sortim per anar all-in i guanyar el partit. Si veus tots els partits que vam jugar la temporada passada, van estar molt a prop. A part del partit del febrer. El rendiment aleshores no estava al nivell que necessitàvem per competir. . Tots els partits posteriors, crec que els marges estaven a prop. Demà serà el mateix. Si tens partits tan a prop, es decidirà per detalls. Hem d’assegurar-nos que els detalls que marcaran la diferència seran al nostre costat.

Sobre Alfredo Morelos: “Sí, Alfredo és a la plantilla de demà”, va dir. “Vaig tenir bones converses amb ell diumenge passat. Crec que va entendre el missatge i també va treballar molt per tornar i ajudar l’equip perquè segueix sent un jugador de qualitat amb moltes amenaces davant la porteria. El seu entrenament aquesta setmana ha estat molt positiu. Demà serà inclòs. Vols jugadors de la plantilla que puguin canviar de joc. Alfredo pot fer-ho. És una gran amenaça davant la porteria. Em dóna una altra opció per jugar amb ell. Estic content per tots nosaltres que hagi tornat. Té un aspecte positiu”.

Ange Postecoglou: “És un partit important”, va dir el Celta entrenador amb un eufemisme considerable en la seva roda de premsa prèvia al partit. “És evident que hem tingut un partit important dimecres per assegurar-nos que hem mantingut el nostre bon estat de forma i aquest serà un bon repte per a nosaltres.

“Ells també han començat la temporada amb força i haurem de jugar el millor que puguem. Al mateix temps, hem estat constants i hem millorat una mica cada setmana, i això és el que farem en aquest partit. Sabem que és difícil aturar-nos quan estem en el nostre millor moment.

“Vols participar en grans partits i posar-te a prova contra els millors tot el temps. Si no us agraden aquests partits, és millor que no formeu part d’un club de futbol com aquest”.

Matt O’Reilly i Reo Hatate sembla que tornaran al mig del camp, substituint Aaron Mooy i David Turnball.

Els Rangers juguen amb l’Ajax dimecres i Giovanni van Bronckhorst té diversos jugadors de baixa, amb els defensors Filip Helander, Ben Davies i John Souttar tots descartats. Més amunt del camp, Tom Lawrence, Kemar Roofe i Ianis Hagi també estan lesionats, mentre que Alfredo Morelos s’ha perdut els dos últims partits dels Rangers a causa de preguntes sobre la seva forma i actitud.

La intriga de Old Firm no pot emmascarar problemes més amplis

“Des del moment de l’any 1985 en què l’Aberdeen va reclamar la Premier Division, l’abisme entre un, o en aquest cas, dos, els escocesos i la resta mai no ha estat tan alarmant”, escriu Ewan Murray. “Aquells que ignoren l’avenc, en gran part sobre la base de l’obsessió tribal, estan enterrant el cap a la sorra. El màxim vol d’Escòcia té la imprevisibilitat de la regata de vaixells universitària”.
