10-man Celtic bounce back to beat Rangers once more

Glasgow, United Kingdom: Celtic bounced back from twice going behind and down to 10 men to beat Rangers 3-2 at Ibrox on Sunday and take a huge step towards a seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership title.

Brendan Rodgers's men now lead their Glasgow rivals by nine points and have a game in hand at the top of the table.

Rangers' wait for a first league win over Celtic since 2012 continues, but they looked well set to stretch their recent fine form when they went in front through Josh Windass and Daniel Candeias in the first-half.

Both those strikes were quickly cancelled out by Tom Rogic and Moussa Dembele and despite Jozo Simunovic's red card just before the hour mark, Celtic still found the winner thanks to substitute Odsonne Edouard.

Celtic were forced to hand a debut to goalkeeper Scott Bain due to a late injury picked up by Dorus de Vries, and he too was to play a big part in helping the champions seal a record fourth straight win at Ibrox.
