Celtic came out of the New Year’s Derby with their 9 point lead at the top of the table intact and can be pleased with that after a mixed performance at Ibrox.

Ange had some big calls to make with his starting line-up and it could be debated he got some right and some wrong on the day.

His exceptional use of second half substitutions can’t be argued with though as Jota, Mooy and Giakoumakis all played a part in the move that led to Kyogo’s crucial late strike!

Elsewhere, the catalogue of VAR decisions going against Celtic continues to grow with Connor Goldson being allowed to play volleyball in the box as Celtic pressed for an equaliser.

We’re now 10 games into VAR in Scottish Football and a system that started poorly on an October lunchtime at Tynecastle, has now become an increasing concern.

Where’s the SFA’s “Head of Referee Operations” when you need him? An individual who’s extremely selective about his media appearances.
