Celtic move five points clear at the top
Neil Lennon insists there is more to come from Gary Hooper after his red-hot striker grabbed a double in Celtic’s 4-0 Premier League win over Ross County at Parkhead on Saturday.
The former Scunthorpe striker has been prolific since signing from the north Lincolnshire club in 2010 for €2.9 million and, after skipper Scott Brown had fired the home side into the lead a minute into the second-half, he popped up with two headers from close-range to take his overall SPL tally to 51. James Forrest made a scoring return as a second-half substitute after recovering from a hamstring injury.
The champions are five points ahead of Inverness with a game in hand and could have the title effectively won before they take on Italian giants Juventus in the last-16 of the Champions League in February and March.
Kilmarnock and Hibernian shared a 1-1 draw at a sodden Rugby Park with Paul Heffernan giving the Ayrshire side the lead in the sixth minute before Dubliner Eoin Doyle levelled in the 26th minute.
Andy Little and Lee McCulloch scored two goals each as Rangers moved nine points clear with a game in hand at the top of the Third Division. Lewis Macleod and Kyle Hutton also claimed a goal apiece against Elgin in the 6-2 win.
