WATCH: Moussa Dembele scores stunning goal for Celtic in St Johnstone victory

CELTIC'S phenomenal domestic run continued on Sunday as a 5-2 win over St Johnstone, complete with a hat-trick and wondergoal from Moussa Dembele, moved the Hoops 27 points clear in the SPFL.

Celtic have won the League Cup and dropped just two points in the league this season as they chase a historic treble.

However their record run of 28 games undefeated looked like it might come to an end when they fell 2-1 behind at McDiarmid Park.

Fortunately for Celtic, a controversial penalty from substitute Dembele drew them level and the Frenchman added two more, the last a thing of beauty.

Combining teamwork and individual flair, the Hoops passed the ball 24 times in the build-up culminating in a rabona from Mikael Lustig and a back heel from Callum McGregor to tee up Dembele, who completed his hat-trick in style.

Sure, people will say it's only Scottish football, but you can only beat what's in front of you, while the Hoops are playing much more attractive football this season under Brendan Rodgers than they were during Ronny Deila's reign.

And no matter the level, why not just enjoy a great goal?
