The Final Whistle: Celtic v Hearts| Scottish Premiership | Sunday 21st August 2022

Celtic opened up a two point gap at the top of the table with a comfortable – if not spectacular – win over Hearts at Celtic Park.

Kyogo opened the scoring in the first half but it wasn’t until stoppage time that Giorgos Giakoumais sealed the points and a result that maintains Celtic’s 100% start to the new season.

Ange Postecoglou went with the same starting XI for the third game running – a rarity in his time at the club so far – and a glance at the quality on the bench tells you just how far the squad have come under his stewardship.

Reo Hatate, Giorgos Giakoumakis, Liel Abada and Aaroon Mooy were all called upon in the second half today, which is a galling side for anyone who comes up against the Hoops this season.

Eyes now turn to next Sunday’s fixture with Dundee United as Celtic target a fifth league win from five, with the welcome distraction of a Champions League draw also taking place on Thursday afternoon.

As Mif said on last week’s show, “It’s time to start getting excited lads!”

Tino & James were on the mics for this one to bring you all the key talking points from Celtic Park.
