Celtic hero Odsonne Edouard calls his winner over Rangers 'the greatest moment of my life as a footballer'

Scott Bain of Celtic speaks to a member of staff as he warms up prior to the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox Stadium

What do you make of Dembele's comments?

"It feels great", Rodgers said after the victory.

"But until it's mathematically impossible we're up there".

The away form of Celtic has been a tad shaky in recent times and despite beating their nearest rivals Aberdeen 2-0 in their last outing, they have lost two of their last games on their travels which is as many as they lost in the previous 43 combined.

Rodgers, though, would take particular satisfaction from another win at Ibrox, where he supervised Celtic's record victory on their rivals' territory last April.

"But I think the players today showed their quality and that real champion mentality".

Off it, Rangers' unmatched financial might seemed to give them a stranglehold on the Scottish game. "I will reiterate though, I will really enjoy those things when you do your job properly".

"We know walking into Ibrox, teams are under pressure, ourselves included".

"He's agile, he's quick, he's got that calmness with the ball and I thought he was very good with Dundee".

Martin, too, is struggling after missing training. "We have a fitter, stronger squad and we have some big decisions to make". They did a lot of talking beforehand - we stayed quiet.

"I'm desperate to experience the atmosphere", he said. "Russ is an honest and upfront guy and he'll tell me like it is".

The former Liverpool boss insists he has taken no notice of the "confident noises" eminating from Ibrox in the build-up to the game but says it is because Rangers expect to take the spoils.

"I couldn't believe it, but those are the margins in this game", said Murty, who revealed defender David Bates has had a scan on the ankle injury he picked up when Rogic made it 1-1.

"They have people in skilled positions all over the pitch that are proven at this level and whilst we understand that they will try and do". This game stands alone in world football in terms of what it means and the interest in it from cross the globe will never wane.

They talked all week but we do our talking on the park.

Their enforced absence allowed Celtic to dominate on a scale not seen since the late 1960s and early 1970s when Jock Stein's side swept all before them at home and scaled the summit of the European club game as well.
