A fourth-minute goal from James Forrest ensured that the Hoops temporarily opened up a six-point lead on Rangers prior to their Glasgow rivals’ clash against Livingston later in the day, with Celtic’s official Twitter channel @CelticFC acknowledging the goalscorer and full-time result.

Neil Lennon’s team dominated the first half but were unable to add to their early lead and Hamilton had a couple of decent openings after the interval, including one deep into stoppage time as Marios Ogkmpoe almost got on the end of a Scott McMann cross. [via The Guardian]
The Hoops have now won their last six matches in all competitions but needed to overcome some nervy moments at Hamilton, whose pitch was a source of consternation for some afterwards.
These Celtic fans took to Twitter to vent their fury at the standard of the pitch at New Douglas Park:
Not the best second half but clean sheet, 3 points and no major injuries on that pitch

Performance means nothing to me on that disgrace of a pitch. Just get out of there with the win all that matters. L

Good win, 3pts. But that pitch is awful with the ball sticking, nearly impossible to run with the ball

Solid 3 points on a difficult pitch in windy conditions. 5 wins out of 5 in the league.

Awful performance on a pitch not fit for a kids game but 3 points is most important thing
