Patrick Roberts opening his Celtic goal account with a stunning double against Hearts

By Coral Barry

Celtic trio Erik Sviatchenko, Colin Kazim-Richards and Patrick Roberts were all delighted to get back to winning ways against Hearts on Saturday.

Kazim-Richards and Roberts were both on the scoresheet against Hearts and took to Twitter after the game to give their verdict to going within touching distance of sealing a fifth successive Scottish Premiership title.

Celtic were ahead in the 17th minute thanks to a fantastic finish from Kazim-Richards after a wonderful take down onto his chest and the forward was keen to thank the travelling Hoop’s support after the game.

On-loan Manchester City winger Roberts picked up his third goal in just eight league appearances for Celtic.

The 19-year-old has become a regular in the Hoops starting eleven ever since he scored a brace against Hearts earlier in the month.

At the other end of the pitch, defender Sviatchenko was also eager to express his joy after the result.

In other Celtic news, Ronny Deila has admitted there is a challenge ahead for the club.
