Goals from Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper either side of the break gave Celtic a comfortable 2-0 victory over St Mirren in their Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash at Parkhead.

In the 15th minute of a one-sided first-half peppered by Hoops penalty appeals, none of which were given, midfielder Wanyama opened the scoring at the second attempt following a Charlie Mulgrew corner.

Saints showed resilience if nothing else as they withstood a constant Celtic procession towards their goal but seven minutes from time they succumbed again when former Scunthorpe forward Hooper struck from close range, following another Mulgrew corner.
