Rangers star Todd Cantwell breaks silence on Old Firm defeat and insists Celtic DIDN'T WIN derby | The Sun

TODD CANTWELL has claimed that Celtic "didn't win" the Old Firm derby this weekend.

The Rangers midfielder reckons it was, in fact, the case that his side lost the match.

Kyogo struck twice with Jota also scoring as the Hoops secured a 3-2 victory that all but ensures they'll be champions again this season.

Ange Postecoglou's men are now 12 points clear at the top of the Premiership table with just seven matches left to go.

January signing Cantwell made his first start in a Glasgow derby showdown having appeared as a substitute in the Viaplay Cup Final defeat in February.

Despite a double from James Tavernier – including his 100th Rangers goal – Michael Beale's men suffered defeat again in what was likely a decisive blow to their fading title ambitions for this season.

It was a defensive horror show for the Gers, with huge individual errors costing them badly.

A Ben Davies howler gifted possession to Jota in the lead-up to Kyogo's second, while the Portuguese winger himself capitalised on a horrendous John Souttar back-pass for the third.

And that seems to be Cantwell's thinking the day after the game.

Taking to social media, the 25-year old insisted things are still looking positive for the Light Blues despite yesterday's setback.

"Stick together as one."

Rangers look set to demand answers from the SFA after a controversial decision from referee Kevin Clancy.

The whistler disallowed a first-half goal from Alfredo Morelos for a push on Alistair Johnston.

The re-start was delayed while VAR Nick Walsh took a look at the incident, although he decided against intervening and the decision stood.

The call led to Ally McCoist describing VAR as a "laughing stock" while Kris Boyd was also bewildered that the goal wasn't given.
