GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -Celtic cemented its place at the top of the Scottish Premier League with a 3-1 win at Kilmarnock on Saturday.

Captain Scott Brown fired Celtic in front in the 27th minute, before Joe Ledley and Georgios Samaras netted in the second half.

Former Celtic striker Cillian Sheridan grabbed a late consolation for Kilmarnock.

Celtic has a four-point lead having played the same number of games as Hibernian before the second-place side played Inverness later in the day.

Celtic's victory came at the end of a week when the Scottish champions qualified for the Champions League knockout phase.
