CELTIC have been involved in TWO last-gasp winners at Rugby Park this season.

Thankfully, the dramatic finish yesterday left the Hoops smiling – unlike the one back in September when Stuart Findlay headed in from a right-wing corner-kick to give Killie a 2-1 triumph in stroppage time.

Scott Brown claimed his defected effort in the 90th minute and it was enough to push the champions eight points clear at the top of the Premiership as they zero in on their EIGHTH successive crown.

As usual, it was tough and tense in Ayrshire and CQN‘s team of ace snappers was there to capture the action.

Here is the pick of the pics.
