Celtic moved into second place in the Ladbrokes Premiership with a frenetic 4-2 win over Hibernian at Parkhead.
Hibs striker Florian Kamberi reduced the deficit in the 63rd minute with a thunderous drive, only for Hoops forward Odsonne Edouard to restore the two-goal advantage six minutes later.
Speedy wide-man Martin Boyle then made it 3-2 in the 73rd minute but Edouard’s second goal in the 87th minute kept Celtic three points behind leaders Hearts, who beat Aberdeen 2-1 at Tynecastle.
Two goals in seven first-half minutes did the damage, with Arnaud Djoum heading home Callum Morrison’s cross for the 36th-minute opener and Steven Naismith doubling the advantage from the penalty spot after he had been fouled in the area.
The visitors pulled a goal back with a 55th minute Gary Mackay-Steven penalty, awarded after Niall McGinn had been brought down.
Kilmarnock join Celtic on 19 points after coming from behind to win 2-1 at St Mirren.
