Celtic stumble at hands of super St Mirren as fans revel in 90s throwback

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.
