Excellent Roberts – The Best Of Reactions From Twitter And Celtic Player Ratings vs Hearts

Full Time: Celtic 2-0 Hearts

Celtic finished their Scottish Premiership campaign unbeaten after they beat Hearts 2-0 at the Celtic Park on Sunday.

The first half finished with no goals, but the Hoops went ahead a little into the second period through a bullet header from Leigh Griffiths after good work from Patrick Roberts on the right-flank. Stuart Armstrong made it 2-0 fifteen minutes from full-time to seal the game.

Here are the player ratings for the Bhoys:

Celtic Player Ratings

Craig Gordon – 7/10

Had almost nothing to do for most parts of the game. Made a smart stop to deny Malaury Martin late in the game.

Cristian Gamboa – 5/10

Started the second game in succession, decent outing. Did not offer a great deal going forward. Replaced at half-time by Tom Rogic.

Jozo Simunovic – 7/10

Returned to the line-up in place of Erik Sviatchenko and had a solid game. Strong in tackles, alert at the back.

Dedryck Boyata – 7.5/10

Another fine game for the centre-back. Forced an excellent save from the Hearts custodian with a header from a corner. Gave one needless foul away, but solid apart from that.

Kieran Tierney – 7/10

Came very close to opening the scoring in the first-half from 20 yards out. Was on the receiving end of a poor challenge, came out unscathed though. Hard working display.

Scott Brown – 7/10

Bossed the central midfield area as he does always. Broke up play, kept things ticking, helping his team stay on the front foot.

Stuart Armstrong – 7/10

Not as influential as he has been in recent times, but scored the all-important second goal – his 16th of the season.

Patrick Roberts – 9/10

Put on a starring display on what was his last game at the Parkhead. A jinking run and lovely pick-out for Griffiths for the opener. Class above the rest.

Callum McGregor – 6/10

Did not impact the game a great deal, but linked play well with his smart movement in the final third.

Scott Sinclair – 6/10

Was closely watched by the Hearts’ defence and as a result couldn’t have the effect that he would have liked to. Still played a role in the second goal.

Leigh Griffiths – 7/10

Came close with a clever free-kick in the first period, opened the scoring with a strong header.


Tom Rogic – 6/10

Replaced Gamboa at half-time and did a good job.

Kolo Toure – NA

Replaced Simunovic late on. Not a lot to deal with.

Erik Sviatchenko – NA

Came on for Armstrong for the final few minutes.
