Sheridan at the double

Published Add your comment

A Cillian Sheridan double helped Celtic to a 3-0 victroy over Kilmarnock at Parkhead and stretched their lead at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League to four points over Rangers.

The 19-year-old Irish striker worked a neat one-two with Scott McDonald in the 18th minute before slotting past Alan Combe and in the 75th minute he was on hand to knock the ball in to the roof of the net after the Killie keeper had spilled a long-range shot from Massimo Donati.

Hoops midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura, returning from a knee injury, grabbed number three with six minutes remaining to give a proper reflection of the home side's superiority.
