Scottish Premier League Roundup, Feb. 1

BY foxsports • February 2, 2011

Celtic beat 10-man Aberdeen 3-0 away on Tuesday to move provisionally eight points clear of Glasgow rival Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premier League.

Andrew Considine was sent off for Aberdeen in the second minute and although Anthony Stokes missed the resulting penalty, Gary Hooper capitalized by putting Celtic ahead in the 12th.

Mark Wilson and Stokes, making amends, completed the win for the visitors.

Rangers, which plays third-place Hearts on Wednesday, has three games in hand over Celtic.

In the other game on Tuesday, St. Johnstone beat bottom club Hamilton 2-0.
