Rangers win Old Firm derby to extend unbeaten streak

6:50 am on 25 October 2010

A Kenny Miller double helped send Rangers three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premier League as they came from behind to defeat Celtic 3-1 at Parkhead in the first Old Firm football derby of the season.

Gary Hooper had fired Celtic into the lead in first-half injury time but a Glenn Loovens own goal put Rangers level three minutes after the break.

Miller turned the game around as he volleyed Rangers ahead in the 54th minute before scoring his 13th of the season from the penalty spot for his third double against his old side since returning to Rangers for his second spell.

It was the fourth match in succession that Rangers had come from behind at the break to win and sets a new Scottish record for nine wins in a row at the start of an SPL campaign as Celtic's unbeaten run came to an end.
