Celtic blew Hearts away with a scintillating second half of football. Despite being a goal up at the break Celtic looked a bit slack in attack as Daniel Stendel set his side up to be resilient against Celtic advances and we can relive the highlights thanks to Celtic TV’s Unique Angle.
The Scottish Champions opened the scoring shortly before the half hour mark as MOTM Olivier Ntcham won the ball back in the midfield for Celtic before playing a pass to leftwing back, Greg Taylor, who supplied Edouard who had slipped into the left channel. The Frenchman cut inside and fired a shot at Joel Pereira in the Hearts net, who palmed the ball straight to Ntcham’s feet.
Whatever Neil Lennon said at halftime worked as Jullien scored from the first corner of the half before McGregor and substitute Christie got in on the act as Celtic flowed forward. It could have been more and is remarkable to think that neither Leigh Griffiths nor Odsonne Edouard made it onto the scoresheet.
Celtic made it 5-0 when Jozo Simunovic, who was excellent all night, rose to meet a corner and cap off an excellent night for all of us.
