Commons gave Celtic an early lead, but the Dons drew just before the half time. Magennis struck twice to shock the leaders, but the Hoops managed to get the win with three goals in 25 minutes. Mulgrew, helped by a deflection, Hooper, from close range, and Samaras with a late bycicle kick allowed the comeback to become a reality. Celtic Park ended the afternoon in full joy after another below par performance by the hosts. The Hoops keep the 15-point gap with Motherwell with seven games left. Photo source: SNS
Celtic return to the action at their own stadium after a disappointing end of the year defeat in Edinburgh. In front of them, Motherwell will try to give a fine farewell to Jamie Murphy, who will head to the south after the match at Celtic Park. A convincing win at Celtic Park would be the best form to start the year, but the Steelmen will pose a good test. Live in Vavel UK: 14:00.
Celtic visit Easter Road looking for their first victory against 'Hibs'. They drew with them 2-2 at Celtic Park more than three months ago. Since then, Pat Fenlon's team have been one of the potential teams to pose Celtic a test. However, they have faded a bit during the last few weeks. Today they'll have the chance to prove that they are still up for it. Live in Vavel UK: 14:15
Celtic had a slow start but got the three points after a convincing second half. Hooper, with two goals and two assist to his name, was the man of the match. Ross County caused some trouble and found some holes in Celtic's back, but lost their way as the game went on. Celtic's lead is now more solid, they are 5 points above ICT while they still have a game in hand. Photo source: BBC Sport/PA
Celtic were on the driving seat during the whole match as St Mirren barely threated Forster. However, they again showed some problems to translate their possession into goals. Wanyama's goal brought some calm to the home fans, but as the minutes passed impatience went back to them as the team failed to bring the game to bed. Hooper made it two seven minutes before the final whistle, but it was still an unimpressive showing by a Celtic side who lacks creativity to beat teams that are miles away from them in terms of quality. St Mirren haven't scored against Celtic since 2010, and today they didn't look like breaking that record as they defended their goal while they hoped for a break to equalise the game. Celtic are now four points above Motherwell with a game in hand. A good position to be in just before the Christmas' run of games. Photo source: BBC Sport/SNS
Neil Lennon's men slightly dominated during the first half but got one ahead with Brown's goal. They showed their skills during the second half to easily brush off Killie. Ledley and Samaras ended good passing build ups to kill the game. Sheridan scored just before the final whistle to give the home fans something to cheer on. The unanswered question now is: can Celtic show the same approach and hunger at home?
Dundee United managed to get a point when all looked lost for them. Despite a slow start in the second half, Celtic lead 0-2 through Miku and Watt's goals, but the Arabs did an extra effort during the final minutes to achieve a deserved draw. Mackay-Steven made it 1-2 from close range and a Barry Douglas' cross ended in Forster's net thanks to Ambrose's unlucky header. Celtic will concentrate now on Barcelona trying to forget their SPL woes, where, despite two weeks without a win, they are still leading with a game in hand (at home against Dundee United).
Celtic trashed and looked on form at St Mirren Park. St Mirren didn't have a B plan to revert the match's fate. Hooper, Ambrose, Wanyama (2) and Watt gave Celtic a well-deserved lead. Neil Lennon's men remain leaders of the SPL and head to Barcelona with a sky-high morale. St Mirren are given a sore blow but will remain confident to reach their goal: a top six finish.
