Scottish PL Roundup, Jan. 27

BY foxsports • January 28, 2010

Rangers strengthened its grip on top spot in the Scottish Premier League by beating St. Mirren 2-0 as Celtic lost to Hibernian 2-1 on Wednesday.

Rangers has a 10-point lead over Celtic as it bids for a second straight title, although it has played a game more than its Glasgow rival.

Midfielder Steven Davis netted in the opening two minutes for Rangers before Nacho Novo marked his comeback from injury with a late goal.

Substitute Danny Galbraith's stoppage-time winner clinched Hibernian's win at Celtic. Marc-Antoine Fortune had headed Celtic into a 5th-minute lead from Paul Caddis' corner and the home side appeared to be in control.

But Anthony Stokes found room inside the Celtic box to flick a header past Artur Boruc in the 26th.

Also on Wednesday, Fraser Fyvie became the youngest goalscorer in Scottish Premier League history as Aberdeen routed Hearts 3-0. Fyvie turns 17 on March 27.

Fourth-place Dundee United was held to 3-3 by St. Johnstone and Falkirk drew 0-0 with Motherwell.
