Kilmarnock 0-6 Celtic


The Scottish Premier League title was secured in emphatic fashion at Kilmarnock this afternoon as The Champions recorded the highest winning margin by any team in the league this season before celebrating an unforgettable league title.

There were sterling performances all over the field for Celtic but it was Charlie Mulgrew who made it his business that there would be no mistakes today.  He scored two and created another two of Celtic’s opening four goals before a late flurry finished the scoring.

The opening goal was a bullet header from Charlie from a Kris Commons corner with less than 7 minutes on the clock.  Mulgrew could have added a second three minutes later when he combined with Commons on the edge of the area before trying to clip the ball past Cammy Bell in the Kilmarnock goal but on this occasion his attempt went wide.

Glenn Loovens made it 0-2 after 15 minutes when a short corner was played across the field to Mulgrew on the right.  Charlier swung in a deep cross to the back of the six yard box for Loovens to of back across goal and into the net.

On 35 minutes Mulgrew cut inside from the left wing and opened space for a delicious right foot shot inside the far post to put Celtic 0-3 ahead and in dreamland.

Moments later Adam Matthews crossed to the dangerous Commons who could have turned and shot but played the ball into the past of Georgios Samaras who drew a magnificent save from Bell.

Seconds before half time Mulgrew sent in a mirror copy of his earlier cross for Loovens but this time Gary Hooper raced onto the ball at the back post to fire into the net and give Celtic a four goal lead at half time.

Commons, who played as a false centre forward for most of the game to great effect, should have earned a penalty on the hour mark when he was barged off the ball when clean thought inside the box but his distinct hooped shirt counted against him.

Kris then played a magnificent pass onto the rampaging Loovens who injured himself in a challenge with Cammy Bell as his shot went narrowly wide.

The second half looked set to end without a goal before a couple of late contributions, the first from Ledley who combined with Stokes before clipping the ball over the goalkeeper.  Gary Hooper then fired an unstoppable shot into the postage stamp corner from 19 yards to complete the rout.

Have a Champion Easter and enjoy your well earned celebrations.

    Victor Wanyama’s mum is quoted: “It was heart-breaking too see him sent off a week ago but this victory now washes away the tears of disappointment.



    “I fasted ahead of the match, praying that Mugubi and his teammates win the Scottish title. I’m happy that even if he didn’t play against Kilmarnock his teammates did enough for him and the club,” Mugubi’s mother told FeverPitch.



    You know I think that what the mother of any of the first Celtic team might have said the same!


    That’s continuity for you, that’s history, that’s belonging, that’s being invited.



    Our motto, which we don’t have IMO: “Like no other” (The latin scholars can make it posh)



    I love Celtic FC & all associated with it!

    “Like no Other”. Is that another way of saying “Ourselves Alone”? :-)
