Celtic say goodbye to the longest undefeated league run in British football history

Celtic had been imperious in Scotland under Brendan Rodgers.

They had an ‘invincibles’ season last year, going the whole campaign undefeated and winning both Scottish cups.

They also beat their own record for the longest unbeaten run in the league of 62 games set between 1915-1917.

That benchmark was reached back in November and the team had talked about not letting complacency creep in according to Nir Britton.

However, after narrowly coming through against Hamilton in mid week, Hearts proved to be a game too far for Celtic.

The Hoops clinched the title at Tynecastle last season, but they couldn’t keep up with Hearts in this match.

The Jam Tarts powered to a 2-0 first half lead and added another just after half time to send shock waves through Glasgow.

The unbeaten run has rebuilt Rodgers’ reputation after he was sacked at Liverpool.

Time to start again from scratch Brendan.
