St Johnstone 1-2 Celtic: Odsonne Edouard double keeps Scottish Premiership champions in sight of Rangers

Odsonne Edouard’s double helped Celtic come from behind to win 2-1 at St Johnstone and move to within 18 points of Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Shaun Rooney’s header had given the Saints a surprise lead five minutes into the second half, only for the champions to respond with two goals in the space of just two minutes and ten seconds, both from the in-form Edouard.

The France U21 international showed brilliant instincts to equalise on the hour-mark, before firing his side ahead minutes later with a neat finish, the striker’s sixth in his last six matches.
