Rodgers salutes Celtic as record run ends

Celtic next take on Partick Thistle on Wednesday night, with kick-off at 7.45pm - before a massive top-of-the-table showdown with the Dons on Saturday.

First-half goals from 16-year-old Harry Cochrane and Kyle Lafferty were followed up by a second-half double from Manuel Milinkovic as Celtic lost in domestic action for the first time since May 2016. "Even more so if they are a Rangers fan".

There has been a sense that Celtic have been hanging on to their undefeated run by a thread for several weeks now. When faced with adversity in Europe, Rodgers' side have typically bounced back well, but never have they looked so utterly sapped of energy and vigour.

What they have done is absolutely wonderful but to use this feeling that they haven't felt for 18 months, use it as a lever moving forward and let's learn from it and be better for it.

Certainly, their want for those to attributes was badly shown up at Tynecastle, where the industry and keenness of the hosts allowed them to control the game.

David Milinkovic took advantage of some awful Celtic defending to make it 3-0 early in the second half, before wrapping things up from the penalty spot.

"I wanted to pull the players together and let them be aware that they were better than us today and we have to accept that".

The former Liverpool boss told Sky Sports 2: "Credit to Hearts, they were the better team, they were physically better than us in the first half and thoroughly deserved it. Congratulations to them on their victory".

Celtic went into the match 18 games unbeaten against Hearts.

Certainly, this is a squad in dire need of an injection of energy.
