Celtic   1 - 3   Rangers

Celtic v Rangers

Highlights - Celtic v Rangers

By Andy Campbell

Rangers moved three points clear of opponents Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premier League after winning the season's first Old Firm derby.

It was the hosts who went in front when Gary Hooper slammed home in first-half injury time.

But Glenn Loovens's own goal levelled matters straight after the break.

Ex-Celtic player Kenny Miller volleyed Rangers ahead and took his season's tally to 13 with a controversial penalty in the 67th minute.

Rangers' win maintains their 100% league record for the season while Celtic manager Neil Lennon's unblemished SPL record, which had dated back to March, comes to an end.

All of the derby debutants at the start of the match were in the home side with Fraser Forster, Emilio Izaguirre, Daniel Majstorovic, Joe Ledley, Anthony Stokes and Hooper making their Old Firm bow.

Celtic substitute Efrain Juarez, and Rangers replacements Vladimir Weiss and James Beattie, also subsequently got a first taste of the Glasgow fixture.

MY SPORT: DEBATE

Referee Willie Collum, who was taking charge of his first Old Firm derby, produced two yellow cards in the opening five minutes as Stokes and then Lee McCulloch were cautioned for reckless challenges.

In between times, the frame of the Celtic goal had been rattled by Steven Whittaker's fierce drive and goalkeeper Forster clutched a Steven Davis strike in Rangers' next attack.

Shaun Maloney sustained a gash above his eye in an aerial challenge with Steven Naismith and the Celtic captain was soon replaced by Juarez, who within moments sent a dipping a shot wide from the edge of the box.

Davis's volley on the turn forced Forster into another save and Celtic full-back Izaguirre then tried his luck from distance with a shot that cleared the crossbar.

Madjid Bougherra and McCulloch were off target with chipped shots either side of a Ki Sung-Yeung free-kick that was held by Rangers keeper Allan McGregor.

Celtic ended the first half strongly with a series of corners and from one Ki delivery, Whittaker's header carried the ball to Hooper, who swept it into the net at the back post.

But Rangers responded right at the start of the second half when Davis's free-kick was knocked on by Kyle Lafferty and Loovens inadvertently turned the ball into his own net.

Stokes had two efforts as Celtic looked to regain the lead, the first dipping wide and the second held by McGregor.

Ki was yellow carded for clipping Naismith and, moments later, Rangers were in front.

Forster's poor clearance was pounced upon by Naismith, who played a lobbed pass through to the advancing Maurice Edu, and Majstorovic's attempted clearance sat up perfectly for Miller to volley into the net.

Referee Collum was called upon to dampen tempers after Loovens and Miller clashed in the wake of Celtic being awarded a free-kick.

And there was another big decision to make for 31-year-old Collum when Rangers substitute Kirk Broadfoot went down in the box under Majstorovic's challenge, with the referee pointing to the spot amid protests from the home players, who felt Broadfoot had dived.

Miller struck high to the keeper's left and found the net with the aid of the post.

Ki's net-bound free-kick was beaten out by McGregor and Majstorovic had a shot blocked in the Rangers six-yard box.

Rangers continued to pose a threat on the break and Lafferty wasted a chance for his team to score a fourth when he shot wide instead of passing to one of his team-mates waiting in the box.

Ledley did well to fashion a shot out of a bouncing ball, forcing McGregor to tip over, and Samaras was booked for catching Naismith late before the end.
