Celtic back on top in SPL

10:16 am on 7 April 2011

Celtic have gone back on top of the Scottish Premier football League after a 3-1 win over Hibernian at Parkhead.

Gary Hooper scored a double and missed a penalty as Celtic regained top spot.

Rangers had held the lead for the first time in 2011 thanks to their 2-nil win away to St Johnstone 24 hours previously, but a first-half onslaught against Hibs helped the Hoops reclaim their two-point advantage.
