St Mirren stun champions Celtic with shock victory over league leaders



St Mirren v Celtic – cinch Premiership – The SMISA Stadium

Celtic suffered their first Premiership defeat in a year thanks to a shock 2-0 loss to St Mirren at Paisley.

Hometown captain Mark O’Hara steered the Saints in front with two minutes remaining in a first half where a very different side to the Hoops were out of form.

Burly Buddies striker Jonah Ayunga, who gave the visiting defense a difficult afternoon, headed the second in the 53rd minute and Ange Postecoglou’s men had no response.

It was a momentous victory for Stephen Robinson’s resilient and well-organised side – St Mirren’s first league win at home to Celtic since March 2010 – and it ended the Hoops’ unbeaten league record which stretched back a year. 1-0 defeat at Livingston on September 19, 2021.
