Police make further arrest following Old Firm encounter

Scott Sinclair gave the Hoops an early lead when he converted a seven-minute spot-kick before Leigh Griffiths doubled the visitors' advantage 11 minutes later.

McGregor, who had set up Griffiths for the second, turned goalscorer to make it three and then Boyata tucked home the fourth. This time, Celtic are five games away from invincibility in a 38-match season, an achievement of an altogether different stripe.

RANGERS suffered a painful afternoon at Ibrox Stadium as Pedro Caixinha's side conceded five goals in the final Old Firm fixture of the Premiership season.

Those who think Rangers can put an end to Celtic's fantastic run of form can back the home side at 9/2, while the draw looks a decent price of 3/1.

Caixinha is reportedly targeting up to a dozen new recruits this summer, with most observers acknowledging the 46-year-old's need to completely overhaul the squad he inherited from predecessor Mark Warburton.

"But to start thinking you need to sign a whole new team, there is no proof that that is going to be the answer".

The Celtic players joined their fans at the end to rejoice in the romp and Tierney said: "Everybody enjoyed the celebrations".

STUART ARMSTRONG: One of Celtic's best players this season, he kept the midfield ticking along. 7.

The win was Celtic's fifth in the six games between the sides this season - only a 1-1 draw at Parkhead last month preventing a clean sweep - and manager Rodgers was full of praise for his side.

"The only disappointment is that we actually should have scored more goals".

"I maybe didn't imagine I'd still be playing at this age but I hopefully still have a few years left yet".

The latest report suggests that the Portuguese trainer is ready to wield the axe this summer and wants nearly a whole new group of players to work with in 2017-18.

Instead, he says Rangers are now "a million miles" off Celtic and have completely lost the fear factor they once used to instil in the top flight's other clubs.
