SPL Wrap: Four-goal Celtic storm to the summit

Mikael Lustig struck twice late on as Celtic took the lead in the Scottish Premiership title race with a 4-0 win over Motherwell.

Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring on 26 minutes and Leigh Griffiths doubled the home side's advantage before the interval.

Substitute Mikael Lustig then scored a late brace with a left-foot shot and a header to send Celtic a point clear of Aberdeen, having still played a game less.

Meanwhile, Kris Doolan was the toast of Partick Thistle after netting four times in their 5-0 demolition of Hamilton at Firhill.

The striker produced a clinical display of close-range finishing to strike with both feet and his head before Nathan Eccleston completed the rout in the closing stages.

Fourth-placed Dundee United had to come from behind to secure a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at St Mirren, with Stuart Armstrong levelling after Kenny McLean had broken the deadlock with a superb finish.

A Greg Stewart penalty proved enough to give Dundee a 1-0 victory against Kilmarnock at Dens Park after Lee Ashcroft had brought down Jim McAlister after 19 minutes.
