Nine-man Celtic were denied a Clydesdale Bank Premier League title party at Ibrox as Rangers claimed a 3-2 victory in the Old Firm clash.
Goals from Sone Aluko, Andy Little and Lee Wallace secured the victory for Ally McCoist's men, as Celtic's Cha Du-Ri and Victor Wanyama both saw red amid reports that manager Neil Lennon was also sent to the stand at half-time.
Carlos Bocanegra was also dismissed by referee Calum Murray, before Scott Brown pulled a goal back for the Hoops late on from the penalty spot and Thomas Rogne also netted in injury time.
As well as delaying Celtic's title celebrations, the win also allowed Rangers to avoid the unwanted record of a fourth consecutive home defeat for the first time in their 140-year history.
