Jackie McNamara insists Celtic's misery should be compounded after last weekend's Rangers defeat at Parkhead - because the Light Blues are NOT a good team.

The former Hoops defender's claims come on the back of a 2-0 win for Gers in one of the most one-sided Old Firm derbies in recent years. The dominant display from Steven Gerrard's men did nothing to impress McNamara, however, who says it's down to their manager who is a clever tactician and sets up his side well.

On the defeat, McNamara told 67 Hail Hail podcast: "I think the frustrating thing is they are not a good side, they are not a good team but they were made to look organised, the way [Gerrard] organises them every game. But you need to combat that and that's the frustrating thing. We've done it at Ibrox."

Ex-Dundee United and Partick Thistle manager McNamara also criticised Celtic for the tempo at which the played the game, saying they appeared to treat the derby like a testimonial match. And he recalls hoping ex-teammate and Celtic boss Neil Lennon would change things earlier than he did, bringing on the likes of Albian Ajeti and Leigh Griffiths.

"A lot wrong with the shape of the team and the application of the team – going into tackles and riding tackles," he added. "It was like a testimonial match; it just played into their hands. You’re watching it unfold, and you’re going ‘right, let's make a change, let’s change something here.’ At half-time, you’re expecting something different."
