Celtic extended their winning run in The SPL to 11 games on Saturday.
Celtic extended their winning run in The SPL to 11 games with a comfortable victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
The Bhoys were held by Caley earlier in the season, but Gordon Strachan's men made sure there was no repeat as they teed themselves up nicely for the midweek meeting with Manchester United.
The visitors worked hard but an own goal from Darren Dods just before the interval broke the resistance.
Dutch striker Jan vennegoor of Hesselink added a second on 72 minutes and a late third from Jiri Jarosik put some gloss on the scoreline.
A late brace from Darren Mackie lifted Aberdeen to victory over St Mirren, with the three points taking them into second in the table.
Hibernian enjoyed a Saturday stroll at Fir Park, as John Collins' men romped to a 6-1 win over Motherwell.
Scott Brown set Hibs on their way with a goal on ten minutes and Chris Killen added a second shortly afterwards.
Any hopes Well had of forcing their way back into the game were snuffed out when Ivan Sproule added two more before the break to put Hibs in total command.
Rob Jones and Dean Shiels scored late on, with Stephen Maguire's effort proving nothing more than a consolation.
Basement boys Dunfermline came from behind to get the better of Dundee United.
Barry Robson's goal on 52 minutes looked like securing three points for The Terrors, but Dunfermline rallied and goals from Greg Shields and Gary Mason sealed an unlikely win for The Pars.
Anthony Stokes scored yet again for Falkirk, but it was not enough to see off Kilmarnock who pinched victory thanks to a goal from Garry Hay and own goal from Stephen O'Donnell.
