The Celts hosted the Light Blues in what promised to be an enthralling encounter at Park Head.

The game witnessed Gers striker Alfredo Morelos, Halliday being sent off after an altercation with Celtic skipper Scott Brown.

The Hoops eventually emerged victorious – thanks to goals from Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest.

Ryan Kent’s second-half goal was in vain as Hoops winger James Forrest found the net in the final third of the game.

The big talking point was the tension which prevailed throughout and even after the game.

Gerrard has now said his opponents played the victim card throughout the game. (h/t Talk Sport)

“If they want to play the victim card, that’s up to them.

“Celtic are entitled to celebrate – the supporters, the club and the individual players. That’s fine. We haven’t got a problem with that at all. We’re on the end of it this time.”

He further defied the explanations offered by the Bhoys’ gaffer.

The former Liverpool star ensured that there would be no such occurrences in the next derby and his side would do everything to be on the winning side.
