On This Day – Celtic beat Killie to go twelve points clear

Celtic came from behind on a turbulent day for the Premiership title race to beat a spirited Kilmarnock team 3-1 at Celtic Park on Sunday.

Neil Lennon’s side started the game knowing that Rangers were 2-1 up at McDiarmid Park, having come from a goal behind and Celtic found themselves a goal down when Eamonn Brophy smashed a penalty beyond Fraser Forster.

Around the time as Killie’s players celebrated in front of the Jock Stein stand, cheers rang out around the ground. Stevie May had scored for St Johnstone. The game would finish 2-2 in Perth and help push Celtic to a 12 point lead, which would ultimately seal 9IAR.

Celtic drew level through Kris Ajer shortly before full time in Perth and shortly after Willie Collum blew his whistle, Odsonne Edouard made it 2-1. Leigh Griffiths rounded things off in the second half with a simple tap in from a brilliant pass from Ryan Christie.

It will be exciting to get back to the games and everyone will look forward to being back in the grounds after well over a year away. It begs the question, how different would this season have been if there were fans allowed? We will never know. Natural order will resume next season.
