Neil Lennon claims the 4-0 thrashing of Hearts at Tynecastle which took his Celtic side four points clear of Rangers at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League was the best performance he had witnessed from his team as Parkhead boss.

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.

Lennon said: "Probably (the best) in my time as a manager. I thought we were devastating, powerful, quick on the counter-attack and the intensity and quality of their play was exceptional."
