Helander header Sees Ranger Edge Celtic

Filip Helander's thumping second-half header saw Rangers beat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox in the first Old Firm meeting of the season. Helander's 66th-minute goal proved the difference between the two rivals in what was a tight and cagey contest between the Glasgow rivals. Both sides could have scored before half-time, only for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard to somehow miss from six yards out, before Rangers winger Ryan Kent hit the post. But Rangers - with manager Steven Gerrard not in attendance after a recent Covid-19 outbreak at the Scottish Premiership champions - held on to move third in the table and open up a three-point lead over Celtic, who stay sixth.
