Video – Watch Olivier Ntcham Open The Scoring

It has taken Celtic just 30 minutes to get the home support celebrating a goal at Paradise again. The Hoops started the game brightly with some good opportunities falling for James Forrest. Hearts slowly grew into the game with a fiercely struck free kick, beaten away by Fraser Forster. However, it was Celtic who took the lead on the half hour mark, when Odsonne Edouard struck a shot at Pereira and the goalkeeper could only parry as far as Ntcham, who calmly volleyed into the empty net for his eighth goal of the season.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic 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. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest.
