Ten-man Celtic lifts League Cup
Glasgow, UK - Steven Gerrard lamented a huge missed chance to land his first silverware as Rangers manager as ten-man Celtic claimed a tenth straight Scottish domestic trophy with a 1-0 win over its fierce rival in Sunday's League Cup final.
Christopher Jullien scored the only goal on the hour mark, but Neil Lennon's men had goalkeeper Fraser Forster to thank for a string of saves, including from Alfredo Morelos' secondhalf penalty after Jeremie Frimpong was sent off for bringing down the Colombian striker.
Rangers remains without a major trophy since 2011.
"Finals are normally decided on big moments and the big moments have not gone in our favour today," said Gerrard, who was furious that Jullien's goal was allowed to stand despite the French centre-back scoring from an offside position.
"There's three of them standing in an offside position, but unfortunately we play in a league with no VAR."
Scottish football does not have VAR in any competition. Other results: German League: Union Berlin 2 Cologne 0, Werder Bremen 0 Paderborn 1.
