Joe Hart: The former England number one was making his Glasgow derby debut and tried to play 'Ange-ball' out from the back at all times. He had the base of the post to thank for keeping the scoreline blank on 31 minutes from Ryan Kent's effort. He saved well from Kent and Fashion Sakala after the break but was well beaten by Filip Helander's header. 7

Anthony Ralston: The Celtic full-back was absolutely outstanding and he stood up to the physical presence of Kent at every opportunity and was always switched on. He really is enjoying a purple patch in his Celtic career and is fast becoming a mainstay of the team. 8

Stephen Welsh: Carelessly lost possession at one point when striding forward and upended Alfredo Morelos in the first half. Gave as good as he got in the physical tussles with Kemar Roofe and Morelos but he also looked ill at ease on occasion when asked to continually play the ball out from the back. 6

Carl Starfelt: The Swedish defender was taking part in his first Rangers game and was rolled easily once by Morelos in the opening 15 minutes. He quickly got to grips with the contest and was rock solid right up until the moment when he was outjumped by Helander on 67 minutes for the opening goal. 7

Josip Juranovic: The experienced Croatian international defender was thrown in for a baptism of fire and had the most touches of any player in the first half. He was also a willing runner and offered great support to Kyogo down the left flank at all times and can be very pleased with his contribution. 8

Callum McGregor: Picked up the ball from the defence whenever he could and always tried to start attacks and he was lucky not to be booked for a first-half challenge. The skipper was quickly closed down by Kent more often than not and found it difficult to operate in pockets or find real channels of space. 6

David Turnbull: The midfielder was booked for a clumsy challenge on Connor Goldson on 38 minutes and looked tidy enough in the engine room as he probed and prompted away. Like his fellow midfielders, he was unable to penetrate or hurt Rangers where it counted most in the final third and wasted a good free-kick opportunity with a poor effort at goal. 5

Liel Abada: The winger was starved of any decent service in the first half and did get to the byline once in the opening 45 minutes. The Israeli's performance did not improve in the second half and he struggled to make any telling contribution to the match. 4

Ryan Christie: Flitted in and out of proceedings and lashed one wildly over the top right on half-time. Another one who struggled and just couldn't get into the game and be the creative influence that his team needed in the match. He was left screaming in earnest for Kyogo to square the ball for a tap-in for a late equaliser.

Kyogo Furuhashi: The Japan international was also a debutant in this fixture and he curled an effort well wide on 19 minutes and then teed up his striker partner Odsonne Edouard for a tap-in but he failed to deliver. He cut an isolated figure out wide and his passing could have been better and missed a one-on-one with Robby McCrorie when the goalkeeper charged out to save and screamed in another effort that was saved by the goalkeeper's foot. 6

Odsonne Edouard: The Frenchman was given the nod in place of Tom Rogic and he missed an absolute sitter on 25 minutes when he fluffed his lines and side-footed woefully wide of the target with the goal at his mercy. He was a peripheral figure in the opening 45. The striker picked up a needless yellow card for bumping into McCrorie and was hooked on 67 minutes. 5


Tom Rogic: Flung on for Edouard on 67 minutes but the Aussie wasn't given enough time to turn the tide in Celtic's favour. 3

Ismalia Soro: Replaced Turnbull on 67 minutes and helped Celtic gain some territorial advantage but not an equaliser. 3

Adam Montgomery: Came on for the ineffective Abada on 86 minutes. 1
