SPL: Celtic thump five past St. Johnstone; Hibs win away at Falkirk

Celtic 5 – St. Johnstone 2 (SPL, August 22, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) Marc-Antoine Fortune and Shaun Maloney put Celtic into a 2-0 lead at home to St Johnstone, Collin Samuel pulled one back before Celtic went goal crazy in the second half (highlights here).

Falkirk 1 – Hibernian 3 (SPL, August 22, 2009) Hibs continued their 100% start to the campaign. Ryan Flynn had put the hosts in front but a header from Soulemymane Bamba and a brace from Derek Riordan (the second was a fine free-kick) sealed the victory.
