Paulo Bernardo praised the "crazy" Celtic fans after scoring his first derby goal against Rangers.

The Scottish champions won 2-1 at Parched thanks to strikes from the Portugal under-21 international and Kyogo Furuhashi.

And the 21-year-old was keen to talk up the atmosphere at Parkhead as he made it two goals in two games.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "It was really nice to play this game at home with an amazing atmosphere.

"The fans were crazy and pushed us on today. I never watched the last derby because I am in Celtic but it was really good and I enjoyed it a lot.

"With the victory it is so much fun. My job is to do my best and it is nice to score goals and help the team to the victory."

Celtic captain Callum McGregor, who was awarded the broadcasters player of the match, also expressed his delight at the result while maintaining there is still plenty of work to do.

Brendan Rodgers' men move eight points clear after the victory over their rivals with the Ibrox side having two games in hand.

And the Scotland international insists nothing is won yet.

"At points we were always going to be up against it as we are playing against a good side with good quality.

"We know we were never going to have it our own way. The important thing is that the boys stuck together and the crowd helped us through it as well.

"It is a big game and a big win but we are only halfway through [the season] and there will be many twists and turns between now and the end of the season so we just need to get back on the horse and go again."
