ON THIS DAY: In 2008, Celtic defeated Rangers 3-2 in a thrilling match at Celtic Park, which piled pressure on Rangers at the top of the league. After an early Scott McDonald goal gave Celtic the lead, two identical headers by Weir and Cousin put Rangers 2-1 ahead, before a deflected McDonald shot made it 2-2 at half-time. The only goal in the second-half was a Barry Robson penalty, as Celtic made it four league wins in a row.
