Celtic 5 Hearts 0

by Macaroon 5th November 2018

Turning the Screw.

For the second time in six days, Celtic outclassed the diets  to record a seventh straight domestic win.

Striker Odsonne Edouard netted either side of a Filip Benkovic header, all before half-time.

James Forrest then rifled in a fourth, with Ryan Christie adding a fifth.

Celtic, having scored just seven goals in their opening seven league games, have now scored 20 in their last four and are just one behind Hearts with a game in hand.

In truth, it was far too easy for Celtic, who peppered the diets goal with further efforts. They eased up a gear to make it 4-0 after 65 minutes as Edouard turned provider for Forrest to lash home in the box.

And there was sparkle in the build up to the penalty award for their fifth, Celtic sweeping forward before Forrest was brought down as he ran across goal. Ryan Christie dispatched the spot kick. In general, Celtic were in cruise control.

Special mention for the Celtic support including the Green Brigade who made it a day to remember.

Flat Beer moment: Craig Levine giving no credit to Celtic and blaming the performance on injuries.
