Classic Match! Celtic 2-1 Rangers (16/04/2008)

Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink scored a sensational injury-time winner as Celtic's 2-1 victory over derby-rivals Rangers swung the SPL title race in their favour. Shunsuke Nakamura opened the scoring with a stunning swerving drive from outside the area but Nacho Novo equalised in the second half and Allan McGregor saved Scott McDonald's penalty as the visitors seemed to be heading towards a crucial point, despite a red card for defender Carlos Cuellar. But with just seconds remaining Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink headed home Scott McDonald's knock-down to claim all three-points for Gordon Strachan's men, sparking a melee at the final whistle which saw Gary Caldwell and David Weir sent off.
