One of the best performances for many a year today from Celtic. A diamond midfield allowing the full backs to be 30 yards from Hearts goal most of the game. Biton was superb in his first full game, the whole team was just superb, hard to pick a man of the match
Neil Lennon said after the game “That was the best performance since I have been manager” That says it all, the man is delighted. He wanted a reaction and he got one. This is a Champions League Team Celtic have and today it showed. Lennon also said it was a statement after media criticism from Media crap after losing in Europe, well said Lennon on his 200th game in charge
Celtic went 1-0 up on 3 minutes a cracking ball through by Ledley and Commons drilled it home for a wonderful start. 18 minutes later 2-0 and this time superb from Mulgrew, he took a quick free kick finding Commons in the box 10 yards out 6 yards wide of goal and Commons hammered it home, 21 minutes played and 2-0
3-0 and the game was over as a competition on 34 minutes when Celtic got through again, Ledley hit the post and there was Scott Brown to win the game with a 2 yard tap in. 4-0 came when Ledley got on the end of more amazing play then 5-0 and WOW Lustig got the ball, ran into space, kept going and from 25 yards lashed an unstoppable shot high in and off the bar, superb from Celtic
5-0, Half time and the best 45 minutes I have seen from any Celtic side in many a year. The passing was superb, the formation was awesome, it worked brilliant. Celtic pushed Heart high up the park all afternoon and at times the entire defence in the Hearts end for long spells
6-0 came on 58 minutes a penalty to Celtic, Commons was always taking it and he hammered it home. Hearts worst ever defeat is 7-0 and I was willing 8 goals but not to be. 7-0 came when Scott Brown got his second with a right footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner.
The game ended 7-0 and Celtic were just spectacular.
Man of the Match, Kris Commons, Biton was superb, so was our width, not a failure today, perfect 10/10, you will be hard pushed to see a performance like this for a while, although I hope it’s every week. The one Minutes silence at the start of the game was observed perfectly. Great day all round
