Glasgow / Munich – Scottish football record champions Glasgow Rangers have won in the 422th edition of City against arch-rivals Celtic and are getting closer and closer to the first championship since 2011. Team manager Steven Gerrard won the Old Firm 1-0 (0-0) and, as leaders, extended their lead to 19 points in the table. Celtic, who had recently won the title nine consecutive times, were the first followers to play three games less.
For the unbeaten Rangers, it was the 20th win in the 22nd game of the season. Callum McGregor scored the goal of the day (70th). The Rangers had to go to fourth grade in 2012 due to bankruptcy. In 2016 they again reached the highest Scottish league.
Prior to kick-off, both teams recalled the victims of the eyebrows disaster, which occurred exactly 50 years ago when the two arch rivals met. There was a mass panic at the time when Rangers supporters left the stadium shortly before the final whistle sounded and many were trapped in general chaos. A total of 66 people were killed in the accident.
