Celtic moved nine points clear in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title race with a 1-0 victory over Motherwell at Parkhead.

Gary Hooper's 79th-minute strike saw the hosts to the three points, just moments after Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster made a brilliant save from Tom Hateley's penalty, awarded for Kelvin Wilson's challenge on Jamie Murphy.

The Hoops are now on 43 points at the summit, well clear of second-placed Inverness, whose match at Ross County fell victim to a waterlogged pitch.
