Celtic got away with 'daylight robbery' in their victory at Hibernian last night. 

That's the view of former Rangers striker Kris Boyd.

Brendan Rodgers' side left it late to snatch all three points at Easter Road as Adam Idah converted from the spot in added time.

The champions struggled to overcome Nick Montgomery's new-look Hibs team, with Dylan Levitt cancelling out Idah's first penalty early in the game.

The late winner from the on-loan Norwich attacker sparked wild celebrations in the away end, as the Hoops re-opened a three-point gap over Rangers at the summit of the Premiership having played a game more. 

But Boyd couldn't let the result go without being brutally honest about their poor performance in the capital.

Post-match, he said on Sky Sports:  "Any game you want to get the three points, but make no mistake Celtic got away with one tonight there is no doubt about that.

"He has come up (Idah) and a lot of people were asking questions of him before he came up but to score to massive penalties the way he did, credit to him.

"When you win the game everything changes around it and you think you were dominant in it, but Celtic were way below the standards they have set over the last two years. It was daylight robbery and they have got away with one tonight."

On the second penalty in particular, where Joe Newell collided with Kyogo, Eilidh Barbour asked the panel of Neil Lennon, James McFadden and Boyd if they all agreed with Nick Walsh's decision.

Boyd and McFadden nodded before Lennon said: "Joe just flies in there. I understand he is trying to block the shot but he catches Kyogo late and it's in the box.

"I can understand the referee maybe misses it but when he sees it again he has got to give a penalty."
