And with the lead at the top now back to three points, it’s now over to Rangers to win their game in hand to keep the pressure at the top of the table.

But for now, it was Chris Sutton who had the first word on the full-time whistle. Speaking on Sky Sports, Sutton said, “I said before the game it felt big for both teams. Hibs hadn’t been on a great run and Celtic are in a title race.

“Adam Idah, I’ve got to say, great confidence and composure. Taking penalties has been a problem for Celtic this season but going away from Easter Road has been a difficult venue for Brendan Rodgers in the past.
