Video: Celtic Hit Hearts For Six On This Day 20 Years Ago

It was on this day 20 years ago that Celtic thumped Hearts 6-1 at Paradise. Celtic actually fell a goal behind in the 13th minute, but equalised through Joos Valgaeren inside 100 seconds. Moravick, Larsson and Mjallby then raced the Bhoys into a 4-1 lead before the break. Late goals from Larsson and Petrov then rounded off the scoring, as Celtic earned a comfortable victory.

What a superb team we had!

(Note – despite the date given on the video, the match did take place on 18th)

The victory set a new SPL record of 23 games without defeat.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
