Celtic restored their six point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon when they beat St Johnstone 2-0, and after the match one of their goalscorers was the centre of attention on social media.

The Bhoys had to watch as their advantage at the summit was reduced earlier in the weekend, but there was no sign of them feeling the pressure, as they eased to a relatively routine victory to power clear at the head of the table once again.

Celtic have come back from the winter break in fine form, and laid down another marker in their bid to defend their title successfully when they made the trip to McDairmid Park.

Although the Bhoys were made to wait before they opened the scoring, rather than panic as they headed towards the final 10 minutes, they kept plugging away and got their reward when James Forrest finally put them ahead.

The points were wrapped up when new Celtic signing Timothy Weah doubled their advantage in the final minute, before some gloss was taken away from the win in injury time, as Kristoffer Ajer was dismissed for a second booking.

That came far too late for the Bhoys to surrender their advantage though, but could cause a minor concern for Brendan Rodgers moving forward with his defender now being suspended.

Weah had a major impact on the match. The USA international not only put the rubber stamp on proceedings, but it was him who set up the opening goal as well.

The PSG loanee has hit the ground running in Glasgow, and already looks like he could be a real difference maker for the Bhoys this term.

Celtic supporters certainly think that is the case, and Weah is already becoming one of their favourites, as many of them shared when they posted about him and his performance on social media.
