Celtic's record run ends at 69 after hammering by Hearts

Brendan Rodgers' side were defeated 4-0 at Tynecastle - their first domestic defeat since St Johnstone beat the Glasgow club 2-1 in May 2016.

Despite the defeat, Celtic still sit atop of the Scottish Premiership, two points clear of Aberdeen in second.

In their midweek victory against Dundee at Tynecastle, a series of withdrawals through injury persuaded Levein that two 16-year-olds, Harry Cochrane and Anthony McDonald, should be part of a midfield that also included 19-year-old Lewis Moore.

Rodgers brought on striker Moussa Dembele and Stuart Armstrong for Tierney and Olivier Ntcham at the start of the second half but soon found themselves three down when Milinkovic took advantage of a Simunovic slip and rounded Gordon before knocking the ball into the net.




Celtic came close to halving the deficit in the first minute of the second half when Scott Sinclair saw his close-range effort blocked, but within seconds Hearts had put the game beyond doubt.

In an interview with the Scottish Sun, the Hearts boss shared that he was "pleased" with his team ending the Hoops' run but had nothing but praise for his opponents. We had a plan to be more defensive if we got in front but it went right for us.

"I have said over many months, if the players weren't human I would say they would never lose".

There has been a sense that Celtic have been hanging on to their undefeated run by a thread for several weeks now. "It was a very good win and they were clearly the much better team today".
