Managers Reaction 

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “We’re not the finished article. We’ve changed the whole team. Guys have come in without having a bedding-in process. We’ve got some quality players unavailable at the moment. We’re going to be stronger, we have to be stronger and we want to be stronger. That’s the key for us. We want to be better.”

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “We had an honest conversation in the locker room after the game, it’s obvious we weren’t the way we wanted. These kinds of games are always difficult. All we have to do is stick together and make sure we look forward and be ready for Sunday against Hearts. It’s a very tough environment to come to, but we’re not the first Rangers team to lose. I lost very big here when I was a player but we eventually became champions that year.”
