Celtic were excellent yesterday as they trounced Hearts at Tynecastle. Steven Naismith’s side were second-best throughout and they wouldn’t have had many complaints if Brendan Rodgers’ side had scored 7 or 8 goals.
Now, Celtic TV have released the Unique Angle footage that captures all the excellent goals in the Scottish Capital.
The first goal from Matt O’Riley was a collectors’ item. The Dane made a great run from midfield and was found by the excellent pass from Luis Palma to score within the first five minutes. Two nil occurred after O’Riley played a neat pass out to Reo Hatate, the midfielder was able to hit the line and square the ball for Daizen Maeda.
The second half continued Celtic’s dominance. However, Hatate would miss from the spot after Cochrane fouled Kyogo in the box. It didn’t matter much as Kyogo smashed Celtic’s third in shortly afterwards. The fourth came through Tomoki Iwata’s first for the club with a tidy finish from close range.
Celtic have now visited Pittodrie, Ibrox, Livingston, Fir Park and now Tynecastle and recorded maximum points. Next weekend, Nick Montgomery’s Hibs are the opposition as the Scottish Champions return to Edinburgh. Sunday’s performance was brilliant and it was good to see Brendan being acknowledged by the travelling support. The Irishman will now be focusing on a statement result in European football when Atletico Madrid visit Celtic Park in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening.
