Celtic recovered from a shock early deficit to edge past St Mirren and close to within three points of Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers.

The hosts stunned the champions in the third minute with Lee Erwin marking his first start with a maiden goal.

But Celtic led at half-time thanks to headers from Shane Duffy – his second in as many games – and James Forrest.

Emergency St Mirren loan signing Zdenek Zlamal, on his second appearance, then saved an Odsonne Edouard penalty.

Neil Lennon’s side overtake Hibernian in second, with a game in hand on Rangers, while St Mirren remain seventh.
