SONE ALUKO says that scoring against Celtic in an Old Firm was one of the highlights of his career - and the Nigerian internationalist insists that he will never forget the feeling.

Aluko spent the 2011/12 season at Ibrox and put in arguably his best showing in a Rangers shirt in his side's 3-2 win over Celtic in March 2012, scoring a fantastic solo goal to break the deadlock at Ibrox.

The forward recieved the ball with his back to goal before turning on the spot, knocking it through the legs of Tomas Rogne before skipping past Charlie Mulgrew and slotting the ball past Fraser Forster in goal.

The home side went on to seal a 3-2 win and as Aluko points out, the Rangers players breathed a sigh of relief after putting in a commanding performance.

"Celtic could have won the league if they had won that game so that put added pressure and concentration on us," he told the Rangers website. "I was thinking we could go down in history for all the wrong reasons if it happened.

"I didn’t want to be in the Rangers team that let Celtic win the league and the message from the rest of the camp was clear – this won’t happen on our watch.

"We were so determined that we would not lose and I think the boys played the game of the season.

"We were 3-0 up at one stage and they had a rally at the end and scored two goals, which flattered them a bit.

"It was an unbelievable day because of the atmosphere and scoring the first goal was an incredible feeling. It is definitely up there with any I’ve scored in my career."

Aluko, who currently plays in China after spells with Reading, Fulham and Hull City, revealed that he still gets regular reminders of his derby strike from Rangers fans on social media.

"It’s funny because I remember starting the game really slowly. I couldn’t get on the ball and I was worried," he added.

"I’d been in good form and scored five in 11 games before the Old Firm, but I hadn’t made an impact on this game.

"I wanted to try something different when I finally got on the ball and it was pure instinct which made me drive to get one-on-one with the keeper.

"It was great to see the ball hit the net, and now on each anniversary of the goal I get tweets about it from Rangers fans. I get at least five or six videos of it sent to me every year, too."
