Rangers have sent THREE players off while Celtic earn derby rights in a fiery B-Team Old Firm clash
THREE incredible Rangers players have been sent off in a bad-tempered B-Team old-firm derby against Celtic at Ibrox.
The young Gers – watched from the stands by senior boss Michael Beale – took the lead against the Hoops before several players were sent to an early dip.
The exhausted hosts who only finished the game with EIGHT Players come full-time whistle, eventually losing the game 3-1 to their bitter rivals.
After Aaron Lyall’s stunning opener put the hosts ahead, goalkeeper Lewis Budinauckas was the first to leave the goal, acting outside the box.
It was a big disappointment for the Light Blues who started the game strongly.
And it got worse when the numerical advantage helped the visitors equalize not long after, when Ben Quinn fired past substitute goalkeeper Jacob Pazikas.
Celtic took control of the game after the break and another goal from Quinn and a third from Adam Brooks sealed the deal for Stephen McManus and Darren O’Dea’s side.
The home team really lost their composure.
16-year-old Bailey Rice, who made Rangers history by becoming the club’s youngest player to appear in a league game against Livingston in February, was next to receive his marching orders.
Already on a yellow card, the Ibrox contender conceded another caution for a late challenge against Matthew Anderson and referee Greg Soutar also sent the youngster to an early bath.
The orders didn’t stop there as Adam Devine became the third and final man sent off.
Devine, 20, has made several appearances for Ibrox’s first-team this season, most notably during the World Cup break when he made an admirable deputy for Croatian star Borna Barasic.
The win for the youthful Celts jumps the Gers to second in the Lowland League, three points behind the Spartans at the top of the table.
Both teams went into the derby knowing they had to win in an exciting business end to the campaign.
