Men's Football Celtic edge Old Firm thriller

TEN-man Celtic extended their lead at the top of the Premiership to nine points after twice coming from a goal down to clinch a thrilling 3-2 win at Rangers yesterday.

Graeme Murty’s side were bidding to end an eight-match winless sequence against their Old Firm rivals and made an ideal start when Josh Windass put them ahead inside three minutes.

Tom Rogic equalised eight minutes later but Rangers were once again in the ascendancy through Daniel Candeias, only for Celtic to go in level at the break when Moussa Dembele struck.

The hosts were boosted when Jozo Simunovic received a straight red card for an apparent elbow on Alfredo Morelos but the Hoops went ahead for the first time thanks to substitute Odsonne Edouard’s 69th-minute finish, two minutes after his introduction.
