Celtic thrash Hearts

Published Add your comment

Celtic stretched their lead over Rangers at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League to four points with a sound 4-0 thrashing of Hearts at Tynecastle.

Seconds after Stephen Elliott's second-minute header appeared to cross the line before being blocked by Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley, Hoops skipper Scott Brown drove low past Jambos keeper Jamie MacDonald for the opener.

Midfielder Victor Wanyama and Ledley made it 3-0 at the interval before striker Gary Hooper concluded the romp on the hour mark with a typical poacher's goal from close range.
