Celtic is on the verge of being crowned Scottish Premiership champions as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend. After their draw last weekend, Celtic knew that a win against Hearts would all but clinch the title owing to their superior goal difference. Ellis Simms gave the hosts a surprise lead in the third minute before Daizen Maeda equalized in the 30th minute. Kyogo Furuhashi gave the league leaders the lead in the 37th minute before Matt O’Riley sealed the three points in the 69th minute of the game.
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “I just thought they were outstanding again, we played some outstanding football, scored four goals, and probably should have had another four. Craig Gordon was outstanding as well. I just never get a sense with this group that they’re going to veer off course or lose any belief in what we’re trying to build. They’ve done it consistently this year with every challenge thrown at them. [Sunday] that’s my kids’ day so there’s a new movie out that’s on the agenda so we’ll keep an eye on that!”
Hearts boss Robbie Neilson: “One hundred percent, but I think the less said about that from Don’s (Robertson) perspective. When you come through to Glasgow you have to get these decisions. If you don’t get these decisions then it’s going to be a very difficult game. One the day did we do enough to win the game? Probably not.”
