Rangers too strong for Celtic

SPL leaders Rangers prevailed 4-2 in the season’s first Old Firm derby to move four points clear of Celtic. Steven Naismith’s spectacular strike put the hosts ahead but Gary Hooper equalised with a clever finish, before Badr El Kaddouri’s drive slipped through the grasp of goalkeeper Allan McGregor to give Celtic the lead. But goals by Nikica Jelavic and Kyle Lafferty turned the match in Rangers’ favour, Celtic’s Charlie Mulgrew was sent off and Naismith struck again late on.
