Celtic’s gap at the top of the league has increased to twelve points as the Hoops took advantage of Gerrard’s failings at St Johnstone.
Lennon’s men overturned a shaky start as Kilmarnock took the lead from a controversial penalty, but Ajer, Edouard and Griffiths managed to put Celtic in the driving seat and ensured that the Bhoys gained another two points at the top.
Neil Lennon even managed to take Odsonne Edouard off and allow the Frenchman some rest for this weeks vital Copenhagen match at Parkhead.
The star of the match was Leigh Griffiths who scored his 5th goal in 9 games since returning to the squad after the Winter break.
The Scotsman was out for a good part of two seasons following off-field issues and since then rival fans have mocked at the fact Griffiths would never again play football.
However, Griffiths has surely proved Celtic and Rangers fans wrong as the striker has forced his way into Lennon’s first team choices.
Celtic needed a striker in the January window and purchased Klimala but it looks like the Polish striker will have to wait for his chance as Griffiths has worked very hard to be back in Celtic’s plans.
The Bhoys deserved their 3-1 win over Kilmarnock today and now Lennon will plan for Copenhagen’s trip to Paradise.
