Caixinha will have seen Rangers' mental strength, says Murty

Rangers caretaker manager Graeme Murty signed off from his role with a hard-earned draw at Celtic and said new boss Pedro Caixinha will have seen his team's commitment at first hand.

Scotland's two giants renewed their famous rivalry in an edgy Old Firm derby this afternoon, the fourth of five this season.

"I have to say and I will say it again, I just want to thank the players, they have been outstanding for me."
And I thought without two outstanding saves from Craig Gordon they could have had more. "I'd been challenging them all week, saying you're the only ones who believe in yourselves".

Another former Celtic striker, Andy Walker, also dismissed Rangers hopes of causing an upset when he described them as "timid", "weak" and lacking heart.

However, the Gers need a fair amount of wins in the tail-end of the season if they're to overhaul Aberdeen and finish second in the Scottish Premiership, one of their key aims of what's left of their 2016/17 campaign.

"And then watching the game plan come together and work against a very good team is something I can take with me wherever I go - it really filled me with pride".

Minutes later, Hill was almost the villain when he appeared to foul Leigh Griffiths in the box.

Dembele was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea back in the transfer window, but he stayed on in order to improve his game under Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.

He said on Sky Sports 1: "It's a gamble". It was disappointing we conceded a goal.

"I saw the start of the game and St Mirren did well, but I think Celtic were comfortable in the end". We have played well in the three games and got the result.
