Celtic’s performance in their 4-0 win at St Mirren on Sunday has been praised by manager Neil Lennon.

The Hoops extended their unbeaten run this season to 20 league matches thanks to goals from Charlie Mulgrew and Anthony Stokes and a brace from Kris Commons and it was a ruthless display according to the boss.

"It was an exceptional performance from start to finish. I thought we played very well in the first half," Lennon told Sky Sports 1.

"We felt at half-time if we got the first goal, we'd go on and dominate the game and that's the way the game panned out.

"(Adam) Matthews and (James) Forrest look back to their best, Stokes played very well and Commons got his two goals. It was pleasing to rack up the goals at one end and keep another clean sheet, it's just fantastic consistency for the team."

Celtic are now 13 points clear of second-placed Aberdeen with a game in hand.
