Celtic inched closer to the SPL title and cancelled out the only blemish in a perfect season with a 4-0 hammering for Richie Foran's Inverness.

And Brendan Rodgers (left) can claim his first and Celtic's sixth SPL on the trot if his team can beat Rangers at Parkhead on March 11 and Aberdeen fail to beat Motherwell on the same day.

Rangers grabbed a late win over St Johnstone at Ibrox but are still 30 points adrift of their bitter rivals in third place.

It was Rodgers 26th win of the season and stretches Celtic's lead over Aberdeen to an astonishing 27 points.

Inverness are the only club to deny Rodgers points in the campaign to date after they grabbed a late draw at Parkhead just a few days after Celtic were humiliated 7-0 by Barcelona in the Champions League back in September.

But there were no mistakes this time with scoring sensation Moussa Dembele, now valued at £40m and heading for Chelsea according to increasing speculation, hitting the target twice. Scott Sinclair and Stuart Armstrong completed the scoreline.
