Celtic continue to win in the SPL

St. Mirren 1 – Celtic 3 (SPL, November 22, 2008) After holding out for just over an hour, Celtic stormed into the lead when Giorgos Samaras turned in a teasing cross from Hinkel. Celtic soon seized the initiative to pull further ahead, Samaras lifting a ball towards Shunsuke Nakamura with the Japanese star controlling expertly and scoring. The second half demolition was completed by Cillian Sheridan who tapped in third ten minutes from time, although the hosts did get a late consolation through Jim Hamilton.
