But January signing Adam Idah, after converting his first penalty of the night in the first-half, dispatched his second from 12 yards to seal a precious victory in the Scottish Premiership title race.

Idah now has two goals and an assist in his first two appearances for Celtic, as per Transfermarkt, and gave rise to a massive sigh of collective relief amongst the away end in Leith.

Celtic were poor throughout the game and after Hibs had equalised to make it 1-1, the home side were the team on the ascendency and wasted a number of big chances to get in front.

The Hoops had to rely on two penalty decisions to eke out a nervy win that was actually praised by boss Brendan Rodgers as a mark of ‘champions’.

Chris Sutton labelled the triumph ‘enormous’ and rightly so. But pundit Michael Stewart, while saying Celtic’s success was ‘monumental’ for the title race, got a real sense of how nervous the Treble holders are at the moment.
