Kris Commons' second hat-trick of the season against Kilmarnock has only strengthened manager Neil Lennon's desire to hold onto his services.

"We were sensational in the second half and Kris is at the forefront of that" - Neil Lennon
The 30-year-old raised his own personal tally to 26 goals for the season to further extend the visitors' massive advantage at the top of the table courtesy of a 3-0 victory at Rugby Park.

Lennon has already previously indicated Celtic will look to take up the option of offering Commons an extension to the three-and-a-half-year deal he signed in January 2011.

"Kris has had a brilliant season as he has now for the last couple of seasons, and goalscorers make the difference," he told BBC Scotland. "He's hungry, he's only 30. He's still got plenty of football left in him.

"We were sensational in the second half and Kris is at the forefront of that," Lennon added. "He is so important to the way we play. We set the team up to suit him."

Celtic virtually seal title

Celtic are so close to a fifth straight league title following a 3-1 victory at Hearts.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards earned them an early lead cancelled out by Abiola Dauda after the break.

However, Patrick Roberts and Leigh Griffiths later seized upon defensive slips to both restore and extend the advantage respectively.

The Hoops had the ball in the net on twelve minutes through Callum McGregor after Neil Alexander parried from Roberts. But an offside flag was raised.
