Celtic beats Rangers to go top of Scottish league

Celtic beats Rangers to go top of Scottish league

Joe Ledley grabbed the second-half winner as Celtic beat Rangers 1-0 to supplant its Glasgow rival at the top of the Scottish Premier League on Wednesday.
The Wales midfielder met a corner with an emphatic header at the far post in the 52nd minute to secure Celtic's ninth straight league victory.
Rangers, who held a 15-point lead over Celtic less than two months ago, were outplayed in windy conditions at Celtic Park to slip two points behind in second after a third defeat in their last six matches.
The closest the reigning champions came to scoring was in the seventh minute when Lee Wallace's header was clawed away by Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster, with video replays inconclusive over whether the ball crossed the line.
