Celtic star Callum McGregor reacts to Rangers’ type of play in Ibrox win

Rangers beat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon and Bhoys captain Callum McGregor has given his view on Rangers’ tactics.

Ange Postecoglou’s men have shown promise lately and wanted a clear win against their fierce rivals to really prove they can fight for the title.

Celtic had the best chance of the first half when Odsonne Edouard somehow brought the ball out from close range – and they had to pay for that miss.

What on earth is going on at Benfica ?!

Filip Helander’s superb second-half header gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead and they managed to hold out when Kyogo Furuhashi tested Robby McCrorie twice.

Celtic will be disappointed with losing so narrowly and will be desperate to strike back – both for the remainder of their league season and for the next game against the Rangers.

The Celtic skipper McGregor has now offered his opinion on the game and especially the tactics of the Rangers on Sunday afternoon.

McGregor told The Scottish Sun that he thinks the Rangers are a direct team and played a long ball against Celtic which made the game crap.

McGregor, however, paid tribute to the Rangers for discovering and exploiting weaknesses in the Celtic team, believing that they simply did not allow the Bhoys to play their style of football.

“Rangers started the second half quite well. They like to go long. They fought for second balls and made it a junk, ”said McGregor. “We’re just not quite on the ball and we’re not adjusting it like we did in the first half. Thank you very much, you changed it and saw a problem there. “

“When they got there, we were a little blown away. But then we finished the game strong with a few chances. In those moments we have to be strong, stand up and try to turn the game around in our favor, ”he added.

Jack Leiter Indicators with Rangers for All of the Cash

The Texas Rangers will hold a press conference around 12:30 p.m. CT to announce that they have signed Jack Leiter (and will likely tell us the exact amount they paid him).

I wanted to wait until they announced it before writing this post, but Jeff Passan is for baseball news like Woj is for the NBA, so I’m doing it.

Jack Leiter, the number 2 in the draft, agrees with the Texas Rangers on a deal that will gross him more than $ 7.9 million, sources told ESPN. This is the highest bonus for a pitcher since the draft rules changed a decade ago and is just under the $ 8 million Gerrit Cole received in 2011.

Congratulations, Leits Out, on a terrifying amount of money. And play a game to make a living. Must be good.

Notable Vanderbilt-centered unsigned players to keep an eye out for until 5pm on Sunday MLB signing deadline are now:

  • Kumar Rocker (1st round, 10th overall, NY Mets—Contract talks are supposedly “in the balance”)
  • Jordan Lawlar (1st Round, 6th Overall, D-Bags – Rumors have it that the Bags have about $ 7 million available and ready to give that to Lawlar, but he’s still 50/50 with signature )
  • Davis Diaz (Round 12, D-Bags – could be a consolation prize if the Bags sign a late overslot, if they can’t close the deal with Lawlar, probably not both)
