Martin O'Neill's Celtic healed the pain of Spain by wrapping up their third Bank of Scotland Premier League title in four years with a controversial 1-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.
 

Celtic were hurting after their UEFA Cup quarter-final exit to Villarreal on Wednesday but Stilian Petrov's 32nd-minute goal moved them an unassailable 16 points clear of fierce rivals Rangers at the top of the league.Kilmarnock might have taken the lead, but Kris Boyd's goal was ruled out for a push by Eric Skora on Bobo Balde. Stanislav Varga had hit the post for Celtic and Killie goalkeeper Colin Meldrum saved from Petrov's feet before Celtic scored the game's only goal.Petrov converted after a neat flick from Henrik Larsson and Celtic held on to secure another league title. Celtic have now gone unbeaten through 32 SPL games this season and are 16 points clear of second-placed Rangers. Goalkeeper Rab Douglas, defender Johan Mjallby and midfielder Paul Lambert have not started many games in recent weeks but were handed the chance to be on the field for the title party by boss Martin O'Neill.
