St Mirren have achieved their first win over Celtic away from home since 1990 with a phenomenal 2-1 victory over the Hoops at Parkhead.
The Saints while winning by a slender margin weren’t troubled on a consistent basis by a Celtic side in freefall. Kristian Dennis opened the scoring before Ilkay Durmus cancelled out Odsonne Edouard’s leveller.
It’s another feather in the cap for Saints boss Jim Goodwin, who is guiding the club he has legend status at to a superb season. This is a historic result for the Saints, a first win at Parkhead in over 30 years.
It also ended St Mirren’s eight-year wait to beat Celtic in all competitions and is their first league win over the current champions since 2010. Goodwin’s men soared into the top six off the back of this.
Given it was only last weekend where St Mirren were dealt a cruel blow at Hampden by losing the League Cup semi-final to Livingston, it’s a testament to the character inside the Paisley changing room that they have managed to respond to that with 5-1 and 2-1 wins on the road over Dundee United and Celtic.
Hibs are the only top six team yet to be beaten by St Mirren this term and they are up next for Goodwin’s battling Buddies. Fans have poured in with gushing praise for their stars after victory in Glasgow.
It’s the greatest sight that I’ve ever seen 🏁🐼🖤” https://t.co/2dX2j6aXVF

And there it is. Since a devastating defeat last Sunday in the Cup Semi-Final, two away league games, two wins 7-2 aggregate, top half of the league. Take a bow Saints. https://t.co/A6b8HRi8Ho

The highs and lows of supporting this club are like nothing you’d experience anywhere else.
The lows are hard to take but when the good results come, bloody hell.
I want every single one of you to toast to the buddies tonight 🍻
What a team we are!!! ⚫️⚪️
