  SPL: Celtic clinch title with win
Updated 18 April 2004, 19.08
Celtic players in celebratory mood
Celtic bagged their third Scottish title in four years thanks to a single strike by Stilian Petrov in their away match against Kilmarnock.

The 1-0 win leaves them 16 points ahead of nearest rivals Rangers, who can win only a further 15.

Kilmarnock might have taken the lead but Kris Boyd's goal was ruled out for a foul on Bobo Balde.

Stanislav Varga hit the post and the Killie goalie saved from Petrov's feet before Celtic finally found the net.

Delighted

Petrov converted from a neat flick from Henrik Larsson and Celtic held on to clinch the title.

"I'm delighted we've finally won it," Celtic manager Martin O'Neill said.

Determination

"The players had a great inner determination and in this particular year we were the best team."
