Videos – Watch Ryan Christie’s sensational opener and Ntcham’s fabulous finish for lethal Celtic

CELTIC are leading Hearts by 2-0 at Tynecastle at the interval after two sensational goals from Ryan Christie and Olivier Ntcham. And James Forrest had an excellent opportunity to get on the scoresheet himself but dragged his effort wide.

Still Neil Lennon will be in the dressing room more than satisfied at how the first half has gone as he seeks to extend his lead at the top of the Premiership to five points.

Here’s the brilliant opener, which features great link up play from Forrest and Edouard but the highlight is the amazing finish from Ryan Christie.

James Forrest should have doubled the lead shortly afterwards but uncharacteristically failed to find the target. He made up for that miss shortly afterwards, breaking through the left wing position again and cut back from the byeline to find Olivier Ntcham who should his real quality with the finish. The surface is terrible this evening, this was ‘no simple tap in’ according to BT Sports pundit Ally McCoist and as a former top goalscorer himself he appreciated the excellent finish from Ntcham.

Watch how good a finish for yourself below…

Meanwhile Celtic fans were left frustrated by the Hearts officials and the Police who held back hundreds of Hoops fans this evening meaning that they missed the first ten minutes…see what happened HERE.
