Celtic thrash St Mirren 5-0 in Scotland

A Leigh Griffiths hat-trick has helped Celtic to a thumping 5-0 win over St Mirren at Parkhead and confirmed his return to form ahead of Scotland's crunch Euro 2020 semi-final playoff.

The Hoops striker is keen to get back into Steve Clarke's set-up for the game against Israel at Hampden Park later in the month.

Two well-taken goals before the break had the Scottish Premiership leaders on easy street and his third in the second half on Saturday, after strike partner Odsonne Edouard had notched in the 54th minute, surely put him back on the international radar.

Callum McGregor scored from the spot in the 90th minute and with eight games remaining, the league leaders remain unbeaten domestically in 2020 and are now 16 points ahead of Rangers.

Aberdeen came from behind to beat 10-man Hibernian 3-1 for their first league win at Pittodrie this year.

Christian Doidge gave Hibs the lead in a pulsating first half but the Dons were denied a penalty shortly afterwards and, helped by Steven Whittaker's red card, used that grievance as the basis for a comeback.

Adam Jackson's own goal and an Andrew Considine strike turned the game on its head before Curtis Main wrapped things up.

Conor Washington netted his second goal in three days to earn Hearts a point from a 1-1 draw after Christopher Long scored for Motherwell at Tynecastle.

A late Callum Hendry strike boosted St Johnstone's hopes of a top-six finish as they edged out Livingston 1-0.

Marios Ogkmpoe scored a late penalty to boost Hamilton's hopes of surviving in the top flight to beat Kilmarnock 1-0.

Mikel Miller saw red in the 78th minute but Ogkmpoe converted from the spot just before full-time as Accies extended their unbeaten run to four games.
