Shaun Maloney celebrated his return to the Scotland squad with a double as Celtic came from behind to beat Hamilton 3-1 at Parkhead and go top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.Mark McLaughlin scored a shock opener for the visitors after three minutes and in fact it was only Hoops keeper Fraser Forster who prevented the home side falling further behind with some impressive saves as the home side struggled to get going.But in the 25th minute Maloney, back in Craig Levein's squad for the forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifying double-header against the Czech Republic and Spain, levelled with a header.The former Aston Villa player put the Hoops ahead with a wonderful free-kick after the break before Gary Hooper sealed the win that takes them above Old Firm rivals Rangers on goal difference.
