Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard provided the goals for Neil Lennon’s men, one in each half, as they reigning champions easily defeated their relegation-threatened foes.
The final score did not reflect the overall performance as Celtic should have netted a few more times, with even both goalscorers guilty of wasting chances.
Former Celtic player and assistant manager John Collins was impressed with what he saw from his old side tonight, though he did lament the inability to put the game to bed earlier.
He said on Celtic TV: “It was a comfortable performance. The only disappointing thing is that we should have scored more goals.
"We had a lot of possession around about their box and should have been more clinical in the area.
"The good news is that both strikers managed to get on the scoresheet. The manager will be delighted with that.”
