Ki defiant after Old Firm setback

Ki Sung-yueng believes Rangers are not any better than Celtic despite the Hoops going down 3-1 to their Old Firm rivals in their first meeting of the season at Parkhead on Sunday.
Both teams went into the match with 100% records in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League but it was the visitors who drew first blood to take them three points clear at the top but the South Korea midfielder believes Celtic were the architects of their own downfall and claims they can make up for the disappointment when they travel to Ibrox on January 2.
"The atmosphere was amazing. I had never felt anything like it before, it was a very good experience," he said.
"We scored the first goal and then for 15 minutes in the second half there was a lack of concentration.
"But I don't think that they are better than us. We just made some mistakes and it was unfortunate that we lost because of mistakes.
"It was the first Old Firm experience for some of our players and so maybe when we go to Ibrox the next time we will be stronger.
"If we play the way we played in the eight games before Sunday and we don't panic when we go there, I think we can win."
