Rangers swept aside Celtic at Ibrox this afternoon, in a dominant Old Firm performance.
It’s the first time the Gers have recorded back to back home wins over their fiercest rivals for seven years, and you’d be hard pressed to find someone to argue they didn’t deserve it.
Goalscorers, James Tavernier and Scott Arfield will rightly get a lot of the plaudits.
However, one player was absolutely outstanding in the middle of the park.
The Gers picked him up for a reported £50k in January [Daily Record], a minuscule fee by today’s standards. Undoubtedly, a few fans would have questioned how much quality they could possibly be getting for that kind of money.
Yet, ever since he set foot on the Ibrox turf, he’s looked the part.
Today, in his first Old Firm start, it was more of the same.
In a deep-lying role, he’s always available to receive the ball and to move it on with a minimum of fuss.
He strutted about Ibrox almost untouched for the 90 minutes.
Furthermore, while doesn’t venture into the final third too often, just after the hour mark, he did so to devastating effect.
A glorious swivel sent Scott Brown packing before he burst forward and played a slide rule pass to Jermain Defoe.
The veteran striker cleverly let the ball run through to Scott Arfield, who applied the finishing touch and effectively sealed the points.
It was the high point of a generally excellent performance from the Finnish international.
Here’s a selection of fan reactions to that turn and his overall display:
Glen Kamara’s skill in the build up for the second was outstanding 🤩

Not getting carried away, but Glen Kamara is probably the best player to ever grace the game.
