Scottish Premier League Roundup, Sep. 19

BY foxsports • September 19, 2010

Celtic came from behind to beat Kilmarnock 2-1 and maintain its perfect start to the Scottish Premier League season on Sunday.

Conor Sammon put Kilmarnock ahead after just seven minutes, but Daryl Murphy equalized from the penalty spot just before halftime after Anthony Stokes was brought down by Frazer Wright.

Stokes, who had replaced the injured Paddy McCourt, then met Emilio Izaguirre's cross with a close-range volley to score the winner in the 52nd.

The victory ensured Celtic matched Glasgow rival Rangers by winning a fifth match.

Champion Rangers routed Dundee United 4-0 on Saturday.
