Celtic are within one point of clinching the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title following their 2-0 win over St Johnstone at Parkhead.

A Georgios Samaras header and an own goal by Saints midfielder Chris Millar after the break saw off the visitors whose striker Cillian Sheridan missed a great chance with the game goalless.

Neil Lennon's side need only a draw against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park next Saturday to be crowned champions.
