Given bitter rivals Rangers had dropped two points at home to St Johnstone yesterday, Brendan Rodgers knew his team could go eight points clear at the top of the Premiership with a win today, but it certainly didn’t come easy.
It looked like Kille had done more than enough to earn a 0-0 draw, but Brown’s strike in the 90th minute handed Celtic all three points, and some of the scenes behind the goal were pretty jubilant:
Celtic now face a rematch with Valencia in the Europa League on Thursday, before hosting in-form Motherwell in Glasgow a week today.
Do you think Celtic now have one hand on the Premiership title after today’s result, did they deserve to beat Kilmarnock in such dramatic fashion, and are Rangers still in the race?
