Celtic dominated the second half and Ledley crashed in a header from a corner (took by Charlie Mulgrew) in the 52nd minute. Rangers offered little reaction and Celtic made its ninth league win in a row with ease. After having trailed by 15 points on the 5th November, albeit with two games in hand, Celtic went into the New Year with a two-point lead in the title race.

Through the match Celtic managed to gain 56% position (mainly through the second half). Celtic also had 9 on target attempts whereas Rangers only managed 2. Rangers also gave a mass of 22 fouls leading to 5 minuets extra time.
