Kris Commons believes Celtic were lucky to only lose 4-0 to Hearts on Sunday, as it could have easily been five or six.

In an interview with the Scottish Sun, the former Hoops player revealed that Hearts deserved all the attention after Sunday’s game as they were the better team.

“It’s invincibles no more and it could quite easily have been five or six,” admitted Commons.

“Today belongs to Hearts and we should be speaking about them; they totally bullied Celtic from start to finish.”

Celtic’s loss ended their domestic unbeaten streak, which ran for 69 games.

The Bhoys had already beaten the previous British record of 62 games that had stood for 100 years.

Harry Cochrane opened the scoring for Hearts on Sunday with Kyle Lafferty grabbing a goal to make it 2-0 at half-time.

Manuel Milinkovic made the score 4-0 after he scored brace in the second-half, with his second goal coming from the penalty spot.

Despite the heavy defeat, Celtic sit top of the Scottish Premiership, two points clear of second placed Aberdeen.

The Hoops could make the gap five points if they win their game in hand.

The Bhoys are next in action on Wednesday when they host bottom of the league Partick Thistle.

Partick Thistle have lost their last four league games in a row, slumping to a 3-0 defeat courtesy of Dundee in their last outing.

Celtic last played Partick Thistle in August where the Hoops got a 1-0 victory thanks to a Olivier Ntcham goal.
