GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Celtic bounced back from its midweek 6-1 thrashing by Barcelona in the Champions League by beating Hibernian 1-0 on Saturday to maintain its seven-point lead in the Scottish Premiership.

Teemu Pukki scored in the 29th minute to keep the defending champions undefeated after 15 games of their title defense.

The closest Hibs came to an equalizer was when Liam Craig hit a shot against the post.

Inverness stayed second with a 2-0 win at bottom side Hearts, secured by goals by Billy McKay that took his tally for the season to 15.

Dundee United and Aberdeen both won to remain level on points in third and fourth, respectively.
