Celtic manager Neil Lennon wasn't expecting any of his leading players to depart during the January transfer window after witnessing his side extending their lead at the top of the table to three points with victory at Kilmarnock.

"I thought we were brilliant today from start to finish" - Neil Lennon
Skipper Scott Brown, Joe Ledley and substitute Georgios Samaras each found the target in a comprehensive 3-1 victory at Rugby Park. Elsewhere, Inverness Caledonian Thistle are now their closest challengers after swapping places with Hibernian following a 3-0 victory in the Highlands.

"I wouldn't imagine anyone wants to leave at the moment," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "They've achieved great things already this season and hopefully there's more to come and I don't think any of them will be in a hurry to go.

"I thought we were brilliant today from start to finish," he added. "The third goal epitomised the way we played. I think everyone touched the ball in the outfield and Adam Matthews, who I thought was wonderful today, delivered a great ball and Sammy buried it."

We should have scored more - Rodgers

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers believes they should have scored more than the five goals at Rangers.

Rangers 1 Celtic 5

Celtic thrashed Rangers 5-1 at Ibrox in the final Old Firm meeting of the season.

The visitors raced into an early two-goal advantage as Scott Sinclair converted a penalty after Patrick Roberts was fouled by Myles Beerman.

Leigh Griffiths' fierce drive soon added another before Callum McGregor was similarly on target following the interval.

Defender Dedryck Boyata then headed in Griffiths' free-kick, and Mikael Lustig curled a late fifth after Kenny Miller's solitary reply.<
