GLASGOW // Darren O'Dea and Aiden McGeady scored extra-time goals as Celtic beat Rangers 2-0 on Sunday to win the Scottish League Cup. After 90 minutes of goalless football at Hampden Park, O'Dea gave Celtic the lead in the first minute of extra-time. McGeady added the second from the penalty spot in the 120th minute after he had been tripped by Kirk Broadfoot, who received a red card. It was the first time in 20 years that Celtic have beaten Rangers in a final, the last time being in the more prestigious Scottish Cup in 1989. Celtic now have 14 League Cup titles to Rangers' record 25. *AP
