Hearts were handed another defeat as their disappointing run of results continues, losing 2-0 to Celtic.

Daniel Stendel changed the formation and made a few changes to his first Jambos team that fell to St Johnstone 1-0. It didn’t pay off though as Celtic’s quality eventually shone through.

A promising 25 minutes where Hearts pressed the Hoops all over the park was undone. Ryan Christie’s low drive had Celtic in the driving seat before Olivier Ntcham doubled the away advantage and all but ended the match.

Joel Pereira had to be at his best to keep the scoring down and that he did, as the game finished 2-0 Celtic. Whilst there were some positives for Stendel to take from this game, it’s ultimately another defeat.


With just one win since September, a huge game with Hamilton on Saturday awaits Hearts now. The sides are separated by just a goal down the bottom, with a win for either side guaranteed to send the other bottom.
