Rangers B pip Celtic as popular kid plants one on £7m Parkhead star

The Rangers B team defeated their Celtic rivals on penalties to book a place in the final of the Glasgow Cup – with Charlie McCann grabbing attention for planting one on Chris Jullien.

In a pulsating match that ended 2-2, Celtic started with the £7m French defender as he returns from injury with Mikey Johnston and Karamoko Dembele also starting for our Old Firm rivals.

Rangers first-team pair Leon King and Alex Lowry also dropped down to the B Team for Rangers with the inclusion of the latter a welcome sight after a recent injury.

Rangers would also twice come from behind in the match in what was as a stirring performance only one week on from the B team beating Celtic at Parkhead.

Celtic winger Mikey Johnston opened the scoring against Rangers in the 12th minute with Ross McCausland going on to equalise with a powerful effort.

Ben Summers would then restore Celtic’s lead in the second half before Cole McKinnon equalised and eventually forced the game to penalties.

Rangers B overcome Celtic on penalties

Rangers were then ruthless from the spot, scoring all five penalties to secure the victory with young goalkeeper Lewis Budinauckas saving from Ben Wylie to set up the final spot-kick.

Up stepped Charlie McCann – already a popular player in the Rangers support – to dispatch the spot-kick and secure the victory.

Rangers have now progressed to the City of Glasgow Cup Final and you can read the club’s official match report HERE.

Charlie McCann has also been getting some attention online after a clip from the match showed him leaving one on Celtic star Chris Jullien.

The French stopper is coming back from an extensive injury lay-off but the Rangers B team and Charlie McCann didn’t go easy on him in an entertaining encounter.

It’s certainly been a good week for Rangers teams against Celtic as the main team defeated their Old Firm rivals to secure a spot in the Scottish Cup Final.

The fall-out since has been monumental and the behaviour of one ex-Celtic player in particular is a massive embarrassment.
