Celtic have moved 12 points clear in the Scottish Premiership with a win over Kilmarnock on Sunday.
The Scottish champions take another step closer to their ninth league title in a row with the Celtic Park win that came shortly after Rangers had dropped points at St Johnstone.
Steven Gerrard’s men could only manage a 2-2 draw at McDairmaid Park meaning they will now likely have to win the remaining two Old Firm league games and hope Celtic slip up elsewhere while getting close to a 100% record for the remainder of the season.
The Hoops took all three points despite going a goal behind to an early Eamonn Brophy penalty in a game where they were without captain Scott Brown and winger James Forrest.
Kris Ajer scored the home side’s equaliser after 28 minutes before Odsonne Edouard put them ahead five minutes later.
Leigh Griffiths put the icing on the cake for Celtic with the third goal shortly after Alan Power was sent off to make a Killie comeback even more unlikely.
