  1. ‘Another fantastic performance’ – Lennon

    FT: Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    The Celtic manager Neil Lennon is reflecting on another positive result: “We created brilliant opportunities and we had good control,” he said on Sportsound. “It’s another fantastic performance after Thursday. Since the Livingston defeat we’ve won all our games in all competitions so the response has been magnificent.

    When asked on his standout performers, Lennon responded: “Jonny Hayes has had a great couple of days. We’re not surprised either because he’s been showing this in training, so we’re absolutely delighted with his contribution and I was delighted with Ntcham as well.”

  3. ‘Important three points’ – Tavernier

    FT: Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Rangers captain James Tavernier speaking to Sky Sports: “We just concentrate on ourselves and don’t worry about what’s across the road. It was important to go into the international break with three points.”

    “Some of the boys are looking forward to a rest, recharging the batteries and go again after the break.”

  4. ‘Professional’ Celtic get the job done

    Quote Message: It was a very professional job from Celtic, it could’ve been more than two goals. Declan Gallagher and Mark Gillespie did well to keep the score down for Motherwell. Ntcham played well after his midweek heroics, and elsewhere Jullien looks a real signing and Ajer is growing in confidence.

  6. Solid Celtic

    FT: Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Celtic have kept four clean sheets in a row in the league, the first side to do that this season. 367 minutes without conceding in the Premiership.

    It’s some improvement from the start of the season when new signings looked unsure and they were leaking goals regularly.

  7. ‘Tavernier back at it’

    Quote Message: I think James Tavernier has been back at it. He’s had a hard time the last couple of months but he’s had a really solid game. His defending and deliveries have been great.

  9. FULL-TIME- Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    It hasn’t been Rangers’ finest performance, but at no point have they been in trouble.

    Joe Aribo opened the scoring before the break, with Alfredo Morelos doubling the lead in the second half. The Ibrox side stay behind Celtic in the Premiership on goal difference.

  10. Post update

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Greg Stewart shoots into the side-netting, having just replaced Joe Aribo. It was on his weaker right foot, but you would expect him to hit the target from close range.

  11. ‘Not quite sure how it got there’

    Neil McCann

    Former Hearts & Rangers winger on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I’m not quite sure how it gets there, it gets through so many bodies. It was some strike from that angle.

  12. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Well, that was bizarre! Borna Barisic smashes one towards goal, it hits Livingston goalkeeper Matijas Sarkic and crashes off the far post!

    Then, James Tavernier fires one just wide.

  13. Post update

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Jermain Defoe almost squeezes one in at the back post having just come on for Alfredo Morelos, but the flag was up for offside in any case.

  14. Double stop from Gillespie

    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Odsonne Edouard weaves his way past three our four Motherwell players with ease before rolling in Olivier Ntcham. The angled shot is kept out by the foot of Mark Gillespie and the Motherwell keeper needs to make a near identical stop to deny Jeremie Frimpong moments later.

  15. Praise for Morelos as Defoe replaces striker

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Neil McCann

    Former Hearts & Rangers winger on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Morelos is enjoying himself, he’s got a bit about him. He’s in a really confident mood. He’s quelled his fire and he’s showing everything good about his game now.

  16. YELLOW CARD (Aaron Taylor-Sinclair)

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Rangers have a free-kick on the right-hand side of the box after a foul by Aaron Taylor Sinclair.

    James Tavernier whips it in towards Connor Goldson, but the centre-back can’t guide it on target.

  17. ‘Rangers need to stay professional’

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Kenny Miller

    Former Scotland striker

    Quote Message: The crowd are enjoying themselves but Rangers can’t get sucked into that. They need to stay professional and do what got them success initially. Pass the ball quickly round the opposition and punish them

  18. Post update

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Sheyi Ojo nods wide after a lovely cross from Alfredo Morelos.We could do with another goal or something to liven this game up!

  19. Post update

    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    A thrust from Jonny Hayes gets Celtic up the park and Olivier Ntcham works the ball to Ryan Christie on the edge of the box. The substitute hammers in a low shot but it’s too close to Mark Gillespie.

  20. ‘Gerrard will want ruthlessness’

    Livingston 0-2 Rangers

    Kenny Miller

    Former Scotland striker

    Quote Message: The result is in Rangers’ hands and Steven Gerrard will be happy with that, but at the same time he’ll be wanting to see a real ruthlessness from his side by putting a team to the sword
