STEVEN GERRARD was proud of his 'outstanding' midfield as Rangers cruised to Old Firm victory over Celtic.

Defender Connor Goldson was the goal hero for the Gers as he netted in either half to move them four points clear at the top of the Premiership.

But it was Glen Kamara that produced the most impressive showing as, backed up by Steven Davis and Scott Arfield, he ensured Rangers dominated the middle of the park.

Ryan Jack stepped off the bench to play his part in a comfortable derby win and Gerrard was delighted with his in-form Light Blues engine room.

He told RangersTV: "I was torn what team to pick - [Ianis] Hagi deserved to play, Jack deserved to play - but that midfield did ever so well for me against Galatasaray and I thought it would be a similar type of game, but, to a man, the three of them were outstanding.

"I thought Jacko came on as well and put in a real, professional half an hour as well. I am delighted with my midfield, and hopefully in 10 or 12 days’ time we have someone to add to that as well in [Bongani] Zungu who will be more ready then."

Victory at Parkhead continues Rangers' unbeaten start to the campaign as they won a unique Old Firm encounter.

It was a day full of positives and plaudits for the Gers and boss Gerrard said: "The result is all we were after - the three points were very important today and the players have delivered.

"We gave them a game plan and a lot of information in a short space of time - but they deserve the plaudits and the credit as, to a man, they have gone out and carried it out and even the subs who came on took on the information. It was a calm performance and it is very rare you get that here."
