Celtic: These fans were unimpressed with Hoops’ performance in win at St Mirren - Celtic

Following their win on Boxing Day, Celtic maintained their five-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership and extended their winning run in the division to 11 matches.

The Hoops’ nerves were frayed late on when Cammy MacPherson halved the home side’s deficit in the 89th minute but Neil Lennon’s team had done enough to leave with the three points.
