Old Firm Derby Ends in Thrilling 3-3 Draw as Rabbi Matondo Rescues Rangers with Stoppage-Time Equalizer

In a highly anticipated Old Firm derby clash, Rangers and Celtic played out a dramatic 3-3 draw at Ibrox Stadium, with Rangers’ Rabbi Matondo emerging as the hero after netting a crucial stoppage-time equalizer to salvage a point for his side.

From the opening whistle, the intensity and passion of the Old Firm rivalry were on full display as both teams battled fiercely for supremacy. Rangers, buoyed by the home crowd, made a bright start and took the lead early on through an impressive goal from Matondo, who capitalized on a defensive error to put his team ahead.

However, Celtic responded with characteristic resilience and soon found themselves back on level terms courtesy of a well-taken goal from their talismanic striker. The visitors grew in confidence as the first half progressed and took the lead with another clinical finish, stunning the Ibrox faithful and shifting the momentum in their favor.

Despite falling behind, Rangers refused to be deterred and mounted a spirited comeback in the second half. Their efforts were rewarded when they restored parity with a well-worked goal, setting the stage for a thrilling finale.

As the clock ticked down, both teams pushed forward in search of a winner, creating end-to-end action and keeping the fans on the edge of their seats. It was Rangers who looked to have secured all three points when they took the lead late in the game, sparking scenes of jubilation among the home supporters.

However, Celtic had other ideas and refused to concede defeat. In a dramatic twist, they launched a late onslaught and managed to find an equalizer deep into stoppage time, stunning the Rangers faithful and ensuring that the spoils were shared in a pulsating encounter.

For Rangers, the draw felt like a missed opportunity to claim victory in front of their home fans and strengthen their position at the top of the table. Despite showing great character to fight back from behind, they will be left to rue defensive lapses that ultimately cost them two valuable points.

On the other hand, Celtic will be pleased with their resilience and never-say-die attitude, which earned them a hard-fought point away from home. The result keeps them firmly in the title race and serves as a reminder of their quality and determination to challenge for silverware.
