Celtic picked up a big win against a tough Hearts outfit in Ange Postecoglou’s 100th game in charge of the Bhoys – here’s what the fans had to say about the match on Twitter.
While most Celtic fans were pleased with the result, others were somewhat more critical and took issue with the quality of their performance.
In particular, the critics were disappointed with the performance of Anthony Ralston, with several of them suggesting he should be dropped for Celtic’s next game.
Done Ange! 👏🏻👏🏻
Each game at a time with the rampant mentality, then treble will be ours! ☝️

A good win against a tricky team when we made a few changes. Definitely missed Taylor & Johnston, tho the full backs got more confident as the game went on.
Some good goals.
Iwata gave us a bit more control, while Reo’s movement opened them up.
A good important win.

While some fans were scathing in their assessments of Celtic’s full-backs during the game against Hearts, others were more sympathetic – noting that they improved as the game went on.
Hearts took the lead early on in the game, rocking Celtic Park – the Celts soon equalised though, thanks to Leil Abada. The scores were level at the break – in the second half, Celtic raised the tempo and began to punish their Edinburgh-based rivals.
Kyogo Furuhashi made it 2-1 in the 60th minute, before Sead Haksabanovic unleashed a curling strike into the top corner to give the Bhoys a richly-deserved win. Celtic are still nine points above Rangers in the table and look to be in a prime position to win the Scottish Premiership once again.
