THE BIG STORY: The aftermath of yesterday's incredible 5-1 victory over Rangers at Ibrox is just getting started. Naturally the management and players were thrilled with such a great result against the third best team in Scotland, who responded to the game with their usual dignity, with racist abuse, fans trying to attack players and objects thrown at players. But enough about them, let's talk about Celtic.

This match will go down as one of the signature wins of a generation for Celtic fans, similar to the 3-0 victory at Ibrox in 2001 that we talked about on the site yesterday, and those don't come around too often, so days like yesterday should be savoured, as Celtic's quest for a unbeaten league season and domestic treble continues.

Brendan Rodgers' main complaint after the game was that Celtic didn't score enough goals, which Leigh Griffiths agreed with.

ON THIS DAY: In 1994, a notable game took place at Ibrox, as Celtic drew 1-1 with Rangers, the most notable aspect being that Celtic fans were banned from the stadium because of 'damage' done to the seats on previous visits. Could have been worse, we could have tried to attack players or hurl racist abuse or throw batteries at players. Anyway, the highlight of the game was a cracking John Collins free-kick which silenced Ibrox. See the goal below.
