Latest Liverpool news: Ryan Kent scores in fiery Old Firm derby and hits out at Scott Brown
The Old Firm derby, once again, had a lot happening as Celtic defeated Rangers 2-1 at Celtic Park.
The home side saw Odsonne Edouard open the scoring in the 27th minutes before Alfredo Morelos saw red for Steven Gerrard’s Gers.
On-loan Liverpool star Ryan Kent scored a brilliant goal for the away side in the 63rd minute, but James Forrest got the winner in the 86th minute.
The move for Rangers’ goal was excellent which included some nice touches down the right flank before Kent beat a couple of defenders and the Celtic keeper.
It was incredible that Rangers kept the score at 1-1 for a while, but the game ended on a sour note with many players clashing.

Kent hits out at Scott Brown
Andy Halliday was also sent off for Rangers late on in the game and it seems the referee missed out Kent hitting at Scott Brown.
The Celtic midfielder did go down a little easily but Kent can consider himself lucky not to have seen red for his actions.

Gerrard added that Morelos and Kent were provoked in the tie, and believed that the other parties should also get punished for their role in the melee (h/t Liverpool Echo).
Kent has been great for Rangers this season, and reports (h/t Liverpool Echo) have suggested he could be sold by the Reds at the end of the season.
