Alan Hutton stunned by Steven Davis goal in Rangers win v Celtic
Alan Hutton was stunned by Steven Davis’ overhead kick to open the scoring for Rangers in their 2-0 win over Celtic on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s men reached the Scottish Cup quarter-finals, where they’ll play St Johnstone, with a superb Old Firm derby win at Ibrox, where 36-year-old Davis ran the show in the midfield and scored a stunning goal in the process.
Ex-Rangers defender Hutton was blown away by the goal but claims Celtic’s defence should have dealt with it a lot better.
“I just think as a defender sitting here and watching it, I want somebody to take charge of the situation,” Hutton told BBC Sportscene on Sunday night.
“It seems like a lot of the players there are just kind of ball-watching instead of looking around, seeing where he is, getting tight to him and not allowing him the time or space to get a shot on goal. But [it was an] outrageous finish from him.”
Not only did Davis score that wonderful goal to set the Gers on their way to another win over Celtic but he also played superbly well in the midfield.
It’s also worth pointing out that Davis is the same age as Scott Brown, who has never looked more out of his depth in an Old Firm derby than he did on Sunday.
Celtic’s captain was turned inside out by almost every Ger on the pitch as the exit-bound midfielder struggled through the 90 minutes.
Davis, on the other hand, looked to be one of the fittest and most self-assured players out there.
It’s no shock Brown is quitting Celtic – he’s no better than an average mid-table player in the Premiership these days.
He epitmosises that club and his fall from grace has gone hand in hand with the former champions.
