Celtic 2-0 St Mirren
Celtic broke St Mirren's spirited resistance with two early second-half strikes to stay top of the Scottish Premiership on goal difference.

Celtic broke St Mirren's spirited resistance with two early second-half strikes to stay top of the Scottish Premiership on goal difference.

The champions twice hit the woodwork and had a header cleared off the line in a frustrating first half.

But in a nine-minute burst Mohamed Elyounoussi and James Forrest, marking his new four-year deal, sealed vicotry.

Celtic are now one goal better off than Rangers, while St Mirren drop to the bottom on goal differnce.

The hosts handed a debut to left-back Greg Taylor almost two months after his deadline-day signing from Kilmarnock, but lacked the fluency that marked their weekend destruction of Aberdeen.

However, their devastating start to the second half allowed them to cruise to victory ahead of Saturday's League Cup semi-final against Hibernian.
