Result: Celtic beat Rangers in thrilling Old Firm derby
Ten-man Celtic twice come from behind to secure a 3-2 win over Rangers in Sunday's Scottish Premiership Old Firm derby at Ibrox.

Celtic have secured a 3-2 win over Rangers in a thrilling Old Firm derby at Ibrox on Sunday despite falling to 10 men.

The hosts opened the scoring after just two minutes played in the Scottish Premiership clash courtesy of a Dedryck Boyata error.

The Belgian defender's miscued clearance was intercepted by Josh Windass, who bore down on goal before thumping the ball past debutant goalkeeper Scott Bain.

Brendan Rodgers's charges drew level just eight minutes later, however, as Tom Rogic shrugged off the challenge of Sean Goss before curling home from 18 yards out.

Gers then surged back into the lead on 25 minutes through Daniel Candeias, who fired an emphatic low drive at the back post past Bain from Declan John's delivery.

The Hoops soon upped their game and were all square once again just before half time through star striker Moussa Dembele.

Fabio Cardoso allowed the Frenchman to latch on to a long clearance from Scott Brown and then lofted the ball over goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and into the unguarded net.

Celtic then suffered a blow in the shape of falling a man behind, Jozo Simunovic receiving a red card for an elbow on Morelos just before the hour mark.

However, the hosts would go on to find a winner despite their numerical disadvantage as Dembele set up Odsonne Edouard, who then skinned Goss and curled home into the far corner from 16 yards.

Celtic, who have secured a fourth consecutive win at Ibrox for the first time since 1909, go nine points clear of second-placed Rangers at the top of the Premiership table.
