Gerrard accuses Celtic duo of 'playing the victim' after Old Firm clash

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has accused his Old Firm counterpart Neil Lennon and his assistant John Kennedy of “playing the victim” following Sunday’s meeting between the two sides.
The Celtic duo have criticised the conduct of the Rangers players during the 2-1 defeat at Celtic Park – but Gerrard insists there’s “no problem” with it.

Gerrard admits that there will always be talking points after Old Firm games and insists the matter is “done.”

“Neil Lennon will say what Neil Lennon wants to say. His assistant will say whatever he wants to say,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“If they want to play the victim card, that’s up to them. No problem. For me, the Old Firm is done. They won the game. There were a lot of talking points and flashpoints and I’ve spoken about them all.

“Things happen in Old Firm games that people are going to talk about.”
Playing the victim isn’t anything new for Lennon and has been a consistent feature throughout his time in Scottish football.

From claiming anti-Celtic refereeing conspiracies to rants about the Scottish FA, Lennon’s constantly bleating about something.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that he reverted to type after the Old Firm clash and it likely won’t be long again until the Celtic boss is complaining about something else.
