The Hoops never quite managed to get hold of the game and they were chasing shadows throughout the ninety minutes.
Rodgers’ men struggled to deal with Rangers’ pressing and intensity.
Ryan Jack scored the only goal of the game on the 30th minute to give the home side a memorable win.
Celtic were thoroughly outplayed and Rodgers has a lot of thinking to do after that performance. It is imperative that the Scottish outfit invest in defence when the transfer window opens in January.
The fans weren’t too happy with Boyata’s display against Rangers.
The Belgian seemed disinterested and he was quite error prone. It will be interesting to see if he can make amends in the upcoming games.
Celtic fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the defender’s derby display and here are some of the reactions from earlier.
Boyata will be the death of me

Boyata showing future employers what he is all about today. Six months left on his contract and he will be lucky to get asked by his family to pass the salt at the dinner table. Woeful.

McGregor not a left back
Nitchm not good player
Sinclair hides too much

How did Rangers not score there!! Gordon and Boyata almost conspired to give them two great opportunities but neither went in. Wow. At the other end Celtic have a corner. 1-0 47’
