Steven Gerrard’s Scottish side, Rangers ran riot on Sunday as they hit seven goals past 10-man Motherwell to finish 7-1 as Celtic moved to the top of the Scottish Premiership table for the first time this season following their goalless draw against Livingston.
Rangers took the lead very early on in the game through Arfield only to be pegged back soon after, when Curtis Main found himself in the area with the ball and made no mistake.
Motherwell defender Carl McHugh appeared to handle the ball in the area, receiving a second yellow card and was sent off. James Tavernier took the resulting penalty with aplomb and from then on the floodgates opened, with ErozGrezda bagging his first two goals and Arfield getting his brace.
Alredo Morelos and Glenn Middleton also got on the score sheet for Steven Gerrard’s men.
The Gers may have found life on the road difficult this season but Sunday’s flattering win meant they’d have now gone six league games unbeaten at Ibrox – a run which includes five wins – under former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard.
Celtic found it difficult to replicate their recent free scoring form at Livingston, a teamm that has managed 23 goals in their previous five league fixtures to bounce back from their early season slump.
The Hoops also beat RB Leipzig in midweek to keep their chances of Europa League qualification very much alive. However, Rodger’s men found it difficult to get going at Livingston, with the newly promoted side holding out for a 1-1 draw.
Steven George Gerrard is a former English professional footballer who last played for Major League Soccer side, LA Galaxy as a central midfielder.
