Celtic's Unbeaten Run Brought To Shuddering Halt By Humiliating Defeat

Celtic's Unbeaten Run Brought To Shuddering Halt By Humiliating Defeat

The defeat at Tynecastle is the champions' first domestic loss since a 2-1 reverse at St Johnstone on 11 May 2016 - 585 days ago - and Brendan Rodgers' first as Celtic manager against Scottish opposition.

"Firstly, congratulations to Hearts, they were the better team today and deserved to win the game", the Northern Irishman told Sky Sports News.

"I know the disappointment and the honesty of the group; it was just a case of saying remember what this feels like - that obviously hurts - but also to remind them that what they've done is incredible", he said.

"We didn't cope with their physicality, we made too many mistakes".

Kyle Lafferty scored before the break and David Milinkovic bagged a double after half time.

PBS suspends Tavis Smiley talk show amid misconduct allegations
PBS has suspended its longtime late-night talker Tavis Smiley after looking into allegations of sexual conduct against its host. Smiley, 53, was also interviewed in the investigation.

Gordon brought down Callachan inside the box following a Gorgie counter-attack - when the Jambos player had overrun the ball - and Milinkovic converted the spot-kick for his second goal in maroon since joining the club in the summer.

Celtic have started the season in imperious form and have yet to taste defeat in their opening 17 games.

After 18 months of pure success on Scottish soil, there is no precedent to point the reaction the Hoops will give to Sunday's bruising.

There has been a sense that Celtic have been hanging on to their undefeated run by a thread for several weeks now. It is an exciting group of players, whose technical ability is not in doubt, but Levein admits that, physically, they are not ready for the Ladbrokes Premiership.
