Craig Gordon 6

Could do little about the Celtic goals. Did everything else asked of him. Booked for angry reaction to Odsonne Edouard’s penalty.

Michael Smith 7

His usual consistent self. Rarely put a foot wrong.

Craig Halkett 6

Gifted Edouard a goal in the first half but was bailed out by Gordon. Grew into the game.

Christophe Berra 6

Mostly solid but inexplicable handball for Celtic’s second.

Stephen Kingsley 6

Struggled to deal with the link-up play between Kris Ajer and Ryan Christie but grabbed the equaliser.

Andy Halliday 7

Started poorly but improved as the game went on. Booked for a rash challenge on Scott Brown. Got the assist for Boyce.

Andy Irving 5

Struggled to impose himself on the game. Didn’t get the time on the ball that he needs.

Steven Naismith 7

Was everywhere for Hearts. Worked hard off the ball and was always in areas to receive it.

Jamie Walker 5

Quiet afternoon for the midfielder. Booked for a silly foul on Callum McGregor.

Aidy White 5

Unfortunate to give away the first goal.

Liam Boyce 6

Worked hard and took his goal well at a crucial point in the game.


Josh Ginnelly (for Walker, 57’) 8

Looked lively. Played a key role in all three goals but missed a few great chances too.

Craig Wighton (for Boyce, 70’) 4

Provided pace up top as Hearts looked to counter. Missed the crucial penalty.

Olly Lee (for White, 82’) 5

Brought on to shore up midfield.

Peter Haring (for Halliday, 91’) 5

Added some steel to the Hearts defence.
