Forward Colin Kazim-Richards opened the scoring for the visitors in the 17th minute only for Gorgie half-time substitute Abiola Dauda to cancel it out in the 56th minute with an equally fine strike.

However, 10 minutes later Patrick Roberts, the on-loan winger from Manchester City, capitalised on slack play by the Gorgie defence to restore Celtic’s lead before striker Leigh Griffiths made it 3-1 win with his 39th goal of the season.

Celtic moved 12 points ahead of second-placed Aberdeen who play the first of their four remaining games at home to Motherwell later in the day but the Parkhead club have a goal difference in their favour of 38 which makes them surely uncatchable.

Boss Ronny Deila leaves at the end of the season with two league titles on his CV and although the campaign has been one of struggle for the Norwegian, he celebrated at the end of the match with the travelling fans who had enjoyed a fine performance from their side against the Jambos whose third place and European spot was already secured.
