Goals from Georgios Samaras, Koki Mizuno and Scott McDonald gave Celtic victory at Falkirk as the champions restored their lead over Rangers at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League to four points.

Former Manchester City striker Samaras had missed a sitter just before the break but made up for it three minutes after the restart when he headed McDonald's cross past Falkirk goalkeeper Robert Olejnik.

Mizuno, making his first start for the Parkhead club, took a pass from fellow Japanese midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura to slot past Olejnik late on, before McDonald added a third in stoppage-time.
