Celtic took a massive step towards nine in a row with a thumping 5-0 Ladbrokes Premiership win over Hearts as Rangers crashed at Kilmarnock Midfielder Olivier Ntcham opened the scoring for the home side on the half-hour mark with a drive, with second-half goals from defender Christopher Jullien, midfielder Callum McGregor, substitute Ryan Christie and defender Jozo Simunovic completing the rout.

Christie came on for Griffiths in the 65th minute and, just two minutes later, he took a pass from the tireless Taylor and his shot from 12 yards came off Gorgie defender Craig Halkett and beat Pereira.

Jambos substitute Marcel Langer was then shown a straight red by Willie Collum late on for a foul on Hoops skipper Scott Brown.

Parkhead cheered loudly when news of Killie's second goal in their 2-1 win over second-placed Rangers came through, with Steven Gerrard's side now 10 points behind the champions, albeit with a game in hand.

With 10 minutes remaining and the Jambos on their knees, Simunovic then headed in a Christie corner from six yards for number five, with Langer letting his frustration getting the better of him in the 86th minute when he lunged at Brown.

McDonald did not look too pleased to be replaced by Conor Washington in the 29th minute but no one in maroon was happy moments later when Ntcham smartly returned the ball into the net after Pereira had punched an Edouard drive straight to his feet.

Neil Lennon brought back Fraser Forster, Greg Taylor, Simunovic, McGregor and attacking duo Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths after resting them in the William Hill Scottish Cup win against Clyde on Sunday.
