Celtic fans pay tribute to Tierney after dramatic victory over bitter rivals Rangers
Celtic all but put the race for the Scottish Premiership to bed with a dramatic 2-1 victory over old rivals Rangers at Parkhead yesterday.
Odsonne Edouard put Neil Lennon’s side ahead before Alfredo Morelos’ red card – his fifth of the season – just past the half hour mark looked to have put the Bhoys in complete control.
But Steven Gerrard’s men rolled their sleeves up and got back level when Ryan Kent made it 1-1 in the second half, making a mockery of the one-man deficit.
They were on course for a draw, which would have been deflating for Celtic in the circumstances, before James Forrest clinched all three points for the hosts.
But even at the final whistle, there were more dramatic scenes as tempers flared again, with Scott Brown at the centre of it, but the most important thing for the hosts was that they got the win.
And Kieran Tierney loves the derby as much as any fan – his passion shines through and the supporters love it – which means they were only too happy to pour in the plaudits after a late win.
Mate if I could bottle your spirit and sell it we’d live in a world of true bliss 💚👌
