Celtic Boss Has Held Talks With Top January Target

The Scottish international scored a hat-trick in his last Scotland apperance

Kilmarnock have climbed to the top of the Scottish Premiership after Glasgow rivals Rangers and Celtic stumbled on Wednesday night.

Celtic paid the price for failing to build on Ryan Christie's 13th-minute opener as their dominance in possession at Fir Park counted for nothing, and they were left to rue a first-half penalty miss by Leigh Griffiths. "If you pick up enough points then sometimes you get quite close to the summit", said the Killie manager, Steve Clarke, whose side have now lost only once in their last 11 league games.

Rangers relinquished top spot after just three days as Scott McKenna's victor gave Aberdeen only their second Ibrox win in 27 years.

After winning a seventh consecutive domestic trophy on Sunday, Brendan Rodgers insists that his side are not content to rest on their laurels, as the increased competition in Scotland has them wanting more success. Steven Gerrard's men would have fancied their chances of hitting back when Aberdeen went down to 10 men with the dismissal of Sam Cosgrove just after the half-hour mark for a second yellow card.

Steven Gerrard guided Rangers to top spot with a win over Hearts at the weekend while Celtic were in cup action.

Kieran Tierney was the provider, surging down the left flank and putting the ball on a plate for Christie, who then fired his shot past the Motherwell goalkeeper.

In a second-half lacking in quality, Celtic were made to pay for their overall wastefulness as Johnson sealed an unlikely point with a superb low finish from just inside the box in the 88th minute. "It is a testament to the players in the two and half years we have been here, the confidence and resilience".

An Efe Ambrose own goal gifted Saints the lead again but Ryan Porteous responded for Neil Lennon's side with a header.

The Dundee manager, Jim McIntyre, praised Kenny Miller after the veteran scored three in a 4-0 win over Hamilton at Dens Park.
