A dramatic injury-time goal by Gary Hooper gave Celtic a 1-0 victory in their Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with St Mirren at New St Mirren Park.

The visitors bossed the first half but it was Buddies striker Michael Higdon who came closest to breaking the deadlock in the 52nd minute when his spectacular volley from 35 yards rebounded off the bar.

Both sides then missed decent chances in an absorbing second half before Hooper stabbed in the late winner to take the Hoops back to within one point of leaders Rangers.
