Oliver Burke enjoyed an "amazing feeling" as he scored his first Celtic goals in the Hoops' commanding 4-0 win over struggling St Mirren at Parkhead on Wednesday night.

The 21-year-old striker, on loan from West Brom, took only 11 minutes of his first league start to head in a Ryan Christie free-kick.

Winger Scott Sinclair scored the second with a penalty soon afterwards before Burke completed a brace 10 minutes into the second-half with a shot from inside the box.

Substitute Timothy Weah, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, added a late fourth. Scotland international Burke, whose debut for the Glasgow giants was the 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Airdrie at the weekend, said: "I really enjoyed it. Obviously an amazing feeling, two goals. We put in a great performance."
