By Will Butcher
Cristian Gamboa has revealed his pride on Twitter after Celtic extended their unbeaten run to 27 games, beating the Lisbon Lions’ record.
The Bhoys secured an emphatic 4-0 win against Hearts thanks to goals from Callum McGregor, Patrick Roberts and a brace from in-form striker Scott Sinclair.
Gamboa, 27, declared that it was an “honour” on his personal Twitter account to be part of the Celtic side that broke the 50-year-old record.

Brendan Rodgers’ side surpassed the record after the Lisbon Lions had gone 26 matches without loss in 1966/67.
The Hoops took the lead in the first half with a wonderful finish from attacking midfielder McGregor, before left-back Kieran Tierney stole the show from left-back.

Tierney, 19, provided two assists as he bombed on from left-back to supply crosses for both Sinclair and Roberts to find the back of the net.
Gamboa featured for the Hoops from right-back, before being taken off in the 77th minute for Sweden international Mikael Lustig.
Since his move from Premier League outfit West Brom in the summer for a fee of £1million, Gamboa has made a total of 14 league and cup appearances but is yet to have the impact on Parkhead that he would have first liked.
