Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on his goalkeeper Allan McGregor for his display in the 1-0 victory against Celtic.
The veteran stopper made a number of crucial saves at Ibrox, as the Bears took home the three points despite not being at their usual best.
This latest win has seen Rangers extend their gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 19 points, and they had their keeper to thank for most of it.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Gerrard made it clear that McGregor was easily the Man of the Match in the Old Firm clash.
“Wow,” he said.
“Outstanding, he’s a world-class goalkeeper. The couple of saves he’s made to keep us in it, I don’t know who you’ve given Man of the Match, but it’s a good decision (to hand him the award).
“He’s outstanding and reliable, trustworthy, and I know now even more now why he’s been so successful at this club because he’s bailed us out again.”
There is no arguing the fact that McGregor was the Man of the Match.
It won’t happen many times this season, with the outfield players of the Bears usually taking their games by storm from the first whistle to the last.
Rangers have only conceded five goals all season, and it usually hasn’t been down to the display of McGregor, but the defence ahead of him.
Chris Sutton claimed on Sunday that the keeper and his back four have been the main difference between handing the home side the title – even though nothing has been confirmed yet.
We will certainly take it though.
