After confirming the Scottish regular league championship, did you feel relaxed? Celtic lost 3-0 against rivals Rangers. Oh Hyeon-gyu made a long-awaited start and fired a threatening shot, but failed to finish.
On the 13th (Korean time), Rangers, who played the 2022-2023 Scottish Premiership match at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland, won 3-0 against Celtic. The two teams are famous for their ‘Old Firm Derby’, one of the world’s greatest rivalries.
It was the Rangers’ first Old Firm win this season. We met several times going back and forth in the Premiership and Cup competitions, and this was the 5th confrontation, with Celtic winning 3 and drawing 1 in the previous 4 matches. In the last showdown of the season, the Rangers took pride. Celtic has already won the Premiership and League Cup, and in the FA Cup final, Celtic has risen and Rangers has fallen.
The home team, the Rangers, deployed Ravi Matondo, Passion Sakala and Todd Cantwell in the attacking line. The midfielders were Nicholas Raskin, Ryan Jack and John Runnstrum. The back four was Ledvan Ylmaz, John Sutta, Conor Goldson and James Tavernier, and the goalkeeper was Robbie McCrory.
Celtic placed Jota and Riel Abada on the left and right with Oh Hyun-kyu at the center. The midfielders were Leo Hatate, Callum McGregor and Matt O’Reilly. The back four was Alexandro Bernabey, Yuki Kobayashi, Karl Stavelt and Anthony Ralston, and the goalkeeper was Joe Hart.
The home team, Rangers, who were active from the beginning, scored the first goal in the 5th minute of the first half. Hart missed Runnstrom’s left-footed mid-range shot after receiving a pass from Sakala, but Cantwell, who caught the ball, finished it with a strong shot.
In the 7th minute of the first half, Hyunkyu Oh’s sensible shot hit the post. After receiving a through pass, he took a shot with the goalkeeper McCrory in private and chose the shot well, but it hit the post.
Celtic, who continued to counterattack, failed to threaten the goal despite threatening play, with a shot blocked and a through pass cut in front of the goal. In the 24th minute of the first half, Leo Hatate’s mid-range shot went wide.
In the 34th minute of the first half, Rangers widened the score gap. After receiving a sharp corner kick from Tavernier, Suta scored a header.
In the 41st minute of the first half, Sakala’s menacing break through the goal was barely blocked by the Celtic defenders, and Rangers’ attack continued to be sharp until the end of the first half.
In the 6th minute of the second half, O’Reilly dug into the goal and took a shot, but McCrory managed to miss it.
In the 8th minute of the second half, when Sakala dug into the goal, Heart jumped out and blocked it, but the goal was empty. The Celtic defenders hurriedly blocked the goal, causing the second shot to miss.
In the 18th minute of the second half, Celtic substituted Oh Hyun-kyu and Abada for Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda.먹튀검증
Celtic’s will to fight back was broken by Sakala’s key goal in the 25th minute of the second half. Celtic defense’s build-up mistake was cut off by Rangers forward pressure. Cantwell rushed in and stole the ball, and Sakala took the rolled ball and rushed to the goal and scored with his left foot.
In the 29th minute of the second half, Celtic replaced Hatate, Jota, and O’Reilly with David Turnbull, Iwata Tomoki, and Sead Haksabanovic, but it had no effect. In the 38th minute of the second half, the Rangers replaced Jack with Scott Arfield, then Runstrum, Sakala, and Cantwell at the same time, and Glenn Camara, Alex Lowry, and Jack Lovelace all put in the game to finish the game.
