Given bitter rivals Rangers had dropped two points at home to St Johnstone yesterday, 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 Scott Brown’s deflected volley in the 90th minute handed Celtic all three points, and Rodgers was beaming when speaking to the media afterwards:
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, and did they deserve to beat Kilmarnock in such dramatic fashion?
