St Johnstone 0-6 Celtic: James Forrest scores four for Brendan Rodgers side


James Forrest scored four times in 30 first-half minutes against St Johnstone

James Forrest scored four goals in 30 first-half minutes as Celtic romped to their first away Scottish Premiership win of the season against St Johnstone.

Winger Forrest started the rout in 15 minutes and completed his treble in 38.

The last Celtic player to score four in an away game was Maciej Zurawski against Dunfermline in February 2006.

Odsonne Edouard also scored in the first half, and Callum McGregor late on, with Danny Swanson sent off for St Johnstone just after the break.

It was Celtic’s second win at McDiarmid Park in 11 days, but was much more emphatic than the laboured League Cup win as they inflicted a first home league defeat of the season on Tommy Wright’s men.

With Hearts losing to Rangers at Ibrox, it moves Brendan Rodgers’ champions to within three points of the league leaders.
