Micah Richards Blown Away by Incredible Rangers Player vs Celtic at Ibrox

Micah Richards, former Manchester City star and BBC Sport pundit, was left in awe of Matondo’s effort but couldn’t help but critique Celtic’s defensive lapse.

Despite Celtic’s early dominance, leading 2-0 at halftime, Rangers mounted a spirited comeback in the second half, ultimately salvaging a point from the thrilling encounter.

The highlight of the match came in the dying moments of injury time when Rabbi Matondo, the 23-year-old Rangers and Wales international winger, unleashed a stunning strike to secure the draw.

Richards shared his thoughts on The Rest is Football podcast, stating, “You know, when Matondo got the ball, I am screaming, I am screaming at the defender to show him wide. I am coming back from London, watching it on SkyGo, and I am thinking, ‘The game is done here’. I was thinking, ‘What are you doing? You are showing him the wrong way’.

“When he hit it, I just knew it was going in. It was an incredible finish, it really was. I don’t know if you managed to see the goal, Al, it was similar to Kevin De Bruyne’s. It was just a wonderful strike, bent it, curled, right into the top corner. Last minute of the game.”

The draw leaves both sets of fans eagerly anticipating the next installment of this fierce rivalry, as the race for the Scottish Premiership title heats up with every passing matchday.
