The Gers travelled across Glasgow to the home of their arch enemies this afternoon aiming to stop a title party, but it wasn’t long before the floodgates were opened, and the game became about damage limitation.
In the end, Celtic went on to win 5-0 but, in truth, it could have been a whole lot worse for Rangers, with goalkeeper Jak Alnwick putting in an eye-catching display between the sticks.
The 24-year-old has been back-up to Wes Foderingham all season, but he definitely stood out today and arguably kept the thrashing to a semi respectable level.
Alnwick pulled off impressive saves from James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths in the second-half, and his efforts hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Rangers fanbase:
If it wasnt for Jak Alnwick this could of easily been double digits and even more embarrassing if that's possible…

5 goals conceded yet Alnwick was our best player by a mile today. What does that say for the rest of those sad excuse for players.

Despite conceding 5 goals, Jak Alnwick was probably the best player for Rangers. Pulled off some quality saves.
Just too bad it was too late to pull them off.

Jack Alnwick the only guy who got pass marks. If it wasn’t for him it would have been double figures
