Kayal extends Hoops lead

Published Add your comment

Beram Kayal's first Celtic goal was enough to beat St Johnstone 1-0 at McDiarmid Park and take the Hoops five points clear of Rangers at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The Hoops midfielder, signed from Maccabi Haifa last summer, struck in added time in the first half to give Neil Lennon's side a deserved interval lead which they never looked like losing.

Saints survived a controversial penalty claim near the end when substitute Michael Duberry appeared to handle the ball twice in the box as he lay on the ground but referee Iain Brines took no action.
