THE LAST TIME
CELTIC 1-1 RANGERS | 12 MARCH 2017
RANGERS fought back from a goal down to earn a deserved point at Celtic Park this afternoon in the Old Firm derby.
The better team for long spells of the game, Clint Hill fired in the leveler with just two minutes remaining as Graeme Murty’s time as caretaker boss ended on a high.
The atmosphere inside Parkhead was certainly intimidating, but the 8000 or so Gers fans did well to make themselves heard above the din as kick-off approached.
