CELTIC 2 RANGERS 1 (Sun, March 31, 2019)

SLICK goals from Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest swept Celtic THIRTEEN points ahead at the top of the table.

It was an explosive encounter that ended in chaos and saw Alfredo Morelos red-carded for an elbow in the face of Scott Brown, Ryan Kent punch the Hoops skipper on the jaw in the immediate aftermath of the second goal and an out-of-control Andy Halliday pick up a second yellow card AFTER the game.

Celtic, too, ended the game with 10 men when Dedryck Boyata limped off in the 74th minute after Neil Lennon had already used all three substitutes in Scott Sinclair, Tom Rogic and Jeremy Toljan.

The home side relied on an 86th-minute strike from Forrest following the 63rd-minute leveller from Kent.

Edouard opened the scoring in the 27th minute when he was released with a brilliant first-time pass from Forrest and the French ace raced 50 yards ro bamboozle the back-tracking defenders before unleashing an unstoppable drive that thundered into the rigging with Allan McGregor motionless.

TEAM: Bain; Lustig,Boyata, Ajer Tierney (sub: Toljan 73); Brown, Ntcham (sub: Rogic 64); Forrest, McGregor, Hayes (sub: Sinclair 46); Edouard.

*TOMORROW: Another key game on the way to title No.8.
