Celtic broke their own 100-year-old British record to make it 63 domestic games unbeaten with a 4-0 victory at St Johnstone.

Willie Maley's side went 62 games unbeaten between 1915 and 1917, but Brendan Rodgers' outfit have now replaced them in the history books after dominating at McDiarmid Park.

The Ladbrokes Premiership leaders broke the deadlock in the 28th minute through Scott Sinclair, who converted a well-worked corner routine delivered by Stuart Armstrong.

Moussa Dembele nodded wide just before the break and Dedryck Boyata saw a second-half header cleared off the line as the Hoops hunted down a second goal.

Dembele eventually found it, with 18 minutes remaining, after latching on to Armstrong's low cross to convert from five yards.

Dembele's powerful run and cross then forced Steven Anderson into an own goal three minutes later and Olivier Ntcham wrapped up the record-breaking win late on by firing home from 20 yards to complete a fantastic team move.

Uefa open disciplinary proceedings against Celtic following pitch invasion by fan

Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Celtic following the pitch invasion by a fan during the Champions League tie against Paris St Germain.

The supporter raced onto the Parkhead pitch late in the first half with the hosts 3-0 down and darted towards 18-year-old superstar Kylian Mbappe.

He aimed a fresh-air kick at the former Monaco striker but failed to make contact before being whisked away by stewards.

Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has already expressed his frustration with Tuesday night's incident.

"The crowd reaction said it all. It is disappointing at any ground that a supporter gets on to the pitch," said the Cetic boss.

"I am sure the club will deal with that. It shouldn't be anything that we should see on a football field. The crowd in their reaction told you everything you need to know.''

Ross County's Schalk lands two-match diving ban

Ross County forward Alex Schalk has been hit with a two-match ban for simulation while Celtic skipper Scott Brown has been officially cleared to play in Sunday's William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final.

Brown was sent off for a foul on Liam Boyce moments after the striker had levelled from the spot on Sunday following Schalk's penalty-box dive.

The midfielder faced being suspended for the Hampden clash with Rangers but it soon became clear the Easter holidays had prevented him missing the derby.

Celtic submitted their appeal before Wednesday's 3pm deadline - 24 hours later than normal because of Monday's holiday - with the Scottish Football Association confirming the hearing would take place on April 27.

That means his two-match ban is suspended until after the semi-final, with the 31-year-old, who was set to get a rest anyway, due to miss Ladbrokes Premiership games against Rangers and St Johnstone if the appeal fails.

Schalk will miss games against Inverness and Motherwell after County accepted a two-match suspension. The Dutchman went down under no contact to fool referee Don Robertson during Sunday's 2-2 draw.
