Fresh from inflicting reigning champions Rangers’ first home league defeat in two years, Celtic were in commanding form at their Parkhead ground.

It took them a mere eight minutes to open the scoring, through Reo Hatate before Giorgos Giakoumakis seized on a poor pass to double their lead, with Daizen Maeda adding a third goal before halftime.

Saints conceded a penalty five minutes after the break and Josip Juranovic made it 4-0 from the spot.

Halliday’s second goal then secured all three points, to the delight of the home crowd at Tynecastle.

Bottom of the table Dundee came from behind to draw 2-2 with Dundee United.

Nicky Clark’s header gave United the lead and Charlie Mulgrew made it 2-0 early in the second half with a curling free-kick into the top corner.
