10-man Celtic bounce back to beat Rangers once more

They all understand how we work when we go to ten men, but Scotty is the captain and he can dictate that message. Sometimes these knockbacks make you stronger as a group, a little bit hungrier to go and succeed.

"We've come here four times and won four games, so we believe we can win here all the time now".

"What we have to do is make sure these games - there will be three of them - are meaningful between now and the end of the season".

The Hoops boss presents several faces to the world, depending on circumstance - affable opponent, avuncular mentor, disinterested commentator upon the vagaries of the Scottish game - but his waspish demeanour can be triggered by any suggestion that Rangers might fancy themselves against his players, a proposition more usually advanced by canny media interrogators than by anybody at Ibrox.

For the first time in many years Rangers will approach Sunday's Old Firm encounter in a positive frame of mind following a run of results that has produced six consecutive wins and 23 goals into the bargain.

"The fact we're scoring goals and pushing on is indicative of the improvement we have made". "When we study opponents up here, he's been one of the very few goalkeepers I've been really impressed with".

He told The Record: "I've just told the players in the changing room you'll never have a better opportunity to go and win the game". They are capable of playing a number of different formations. They are relishing that test and challenge.

"Handling pressure is something we have done really well historically at this football club".
