No Celtic fan appreciated the 2-0 win over St Johnstone more than Kieran Tierney.
The defender hasn’t played since the start of December but was in behind the goal with his mates as Celtic scored twice in the last 15 minutes to go six points clear at the top of the Premiership.

James Forrest and Timo Weah both raced towards the section of the stand where Tierney was after finding the net.
It was anxious viewing for the hoops supporters who were housed behind each goal as the clock ticked away with home keeper Zander Clark in inspired form.
Mikael Lustig and Odsonne Edouard had both been taken off injured when Forrest made the breakthrough from a brilliant cut-back from Weah.
In the 89th minute, with Celtic down to 10 men after Forrest went off with a hamstring strain, Weah scored his third Celtic goal when he slotted home a pass from Callum McGregor.
