Celtic break Hearts

Published Add your comment

Celtic made a mockery of Hearts' Clydesdale Bank Premier League title credentials with a sound 4-0 thrashing of the Tynecastle side at Parkhead.

Pre-match talk was of the third-placed Gorgie side challenging the Old Firm for the title but they never recovered after falling behind to a James Forrest goal in seventh minutes.

The Hoops created numerous chances in a powerful performance and a second-half double from Anthony Stokes and a goal from substitute Paddy McCourt, on for the injured Forrest, cemented Celtic's place at the top of the SPL.
