Rangers 2 – Celtic 3
Sunday’s Old Firm derby at Ibrox was a cracker.
Celtic beat eternal rivals Rangers 3-2 to strengthen their stranglehold on the Scottish Premiership.
The match was thrilling from start to finish, including four goals in the first half.
Rangers twice took the lead in the opening forty-five with goals for Josh Windass and Daniel Candeias.
But Celtic went into the break level after two levellers from Tom Rogic and Moussa Dembele.
In the second half Celtic were reduced to 10-men when Jozo Simunovic was sent off for throwing an elbow.
However Brendan Rodgers’ side when on to claim local bragging rights thanks to a winner from Odsonne Edouard.

How Celtic fan Rod Stewart celebrated in Russia
One of Celtic’s most well-known supports is Sir Rod Stewart.
He was unable to be at the Ibrox match on Sunday as he had commitments in Russia.
Indeed, the musical legend was on call as a presenter at the Bravo Awards in the Russian capital, Moscow, over the weekend.
Stewart announced the winner of the Best Composer award, but before he made that announcement he celebrated Celtic’s win on stage at the Bolshoi Ballet. He said:
Before I go on to give away the award, I would like to tell you about my football team, Celtic, that beat Glasgow Rangers today 3 – 2, with goals from Dembele, Rogic and Edouard, and we only had ten men.
Rod Stewart has since shared the video on social media.
I was so struck with pride and excitement for my team and supporters that I had to shout it from the rooftops… which happened to be the stage of the Bolshoi ballet where I was presenting the award for the best conductor. The audience seemed to dig it & I could hear the translator having a laugh or two. #CelticPride #UpTheHoops @celticfc #bravoawards
