Callum McGregor keeping things in perspective after Celtic's defeat in Old Firm

CELTIC midfielder Callum McGregor is maintaining a sense of perspective as the Bhoys head into 2019 off the back of last Saturday's Old Firm defeat to Rangers at Ibrox. Celtic were uncharacteristically poor at the weekend, sbo666 as a Ryan Jack goal gave Steven Gerrard his first taste of victory in a Glasgow derby and moved Rangers level on points with their fierce rivals at the top of the Scottish Premiership. However, having already lifted this season's League Cup, Celtic head into the new year still top of the SPL table on goal difference, with a game-in-hand, and are through to the last-32 of the Uefa Europa League, where they will meet Valencia in February.

sbo666 Although Scotland international McGregor expressed disappointment with the result of the Old Firm clash, he remained confident the Scottish champions will regroup during the winter break and come back stronger when the league resumes on Wednesday, January 23. “We're still top of the league with a game-in-hand and we're still in a decent position,” said McGregor. “As long as we go away and work hard in the winter break and come back with that freshness in the team again, we'll be looking to win our game in-hand and have a good second half to the season.”

McGregor echoed the sentiments of Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers after last Saturday's game and described it as a learning curve for a group of players who'd previously gone 12 Glasgow derbies without defeat. The 25-year-old added: “It's always tough coming here and, in the last few years, we've done well. We anticipated a tough game and, sbo666 credit to Rangers, they came after us and unsettled us. “It's a feeling a lot of the lads haven't felt before and we need to remember that feeling, galvanise the squad and go again and work on things to make sure we're picking up points away from home in the next part of the season.”

James Milner maxbet admits Liverpool have fallen short of expectations after losing their unbeaten Premier League record and being dumped out of the FA Cup. The Reds suffered a second straight defeat as they lost 2-1 at Wolves in the cup on Monday. It came after their unbeaten top-flight run this season was ended by title rivals Manchester City last week.

They go to Brighton four points clear at the top on Saturday but Milner knows Liverpool need to improve after recent disappointments."Back-to-back defeats isn't really good enough for us but you have blips in a season," said the 33-year-old."It's not something you want, especially at Liverpool, we know what's expected. We have to make sure we bounce back and look at where we can get better.

"It's not about blips, they are expected but it's how you respond and maxbet bounce back. You've seen the character in the squad over the last few years, and the players we have, to know we will bounce back."It's easier saying that but we have to do that at the weekend."Milner's mistake, when he lost possession to Diogo Jota, allowed Raul Jimenez to open the scoring and the former England midfielder took the blame.

He said: "I should do better. The pitch all night was a bit tricky and lively. It's the same for both teams. It was my mistake maxbet for the first goal and it's cost us, if not it's 1-1 and we get a replay."It was a pretty good finish from their lad but they didn't have many chances. We didn't either but that's what separated the teams, my mistake and a very good finish for the second goal."
