Brendan: Win is for Dad.

BRENDAN RODGERS dedicated Celtic's stunning Old Firm win to the memory of both Jock Stein and his late father CELTIC 5 RANGERS 1: TURN TO PAGE 47 FATHER'S DAY FOR BOSS FROM BACK PAGE on the anniversary of both men's deaths.

After watching Moussa Dembele make history with the first Old Firm treble since 1984, the Celtic boss said: "I spoke about Jock in my team talk but there were two anniversaries today. My father is five years dead so it was ironic we scored five goals.

"One of Jock's quotes talks about how football is only ever about getting the two points. Back then that's what you got.

"So when I spoke to the players before the game I said: 'For us it's about getting three points - but when you beat one of your rivals it's a wee bit sweeter'.

"But it was primarily about the man who set the tone at Celtic, the template. We said if Jock is looking down make sure we do him proud."
