CELTIC stumbled to their second Premiership defeat of the season when a goal deep in stoppage-time from Stuart Findlay gave Kilmarnock a 2-1 triumph at Rugby Park yesterday.

It was a disappointing performance from Brendan Rodgers’ team looking to win their eighth successive crown.

Remember, though, the league title race is a marathon and not a sprint and no prizes are handed out after six games.

CQN’s ace lensman Geo was at the game to capture some excellent action images.

PENALTY, REF! Killie defender Kirk Broadfoot clearly has both hands around Dedryck Boyata as he attempts to go for a high ball. Match official Craig Thomson thought it was a perfectly legitimate challenge.
