Hearts break Celtic's unbeaten domestic streak after 69 games

Sixteen-year-old Harry Cochrane (right) scores Hearts' opening goal in their 4-0 rout that ended Celtic's long unbeaten domestic run.

CELTIC'S astonishing unbeaten run in Scotland has finally come to an end with a crushing 4-0 defeat at Hearts.

Sixteen-year-old Harry Cochrane opened the scoring at Tynecastle, Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty added a superb second, and David Milinkovic made it three early in the second half before adding his second from the penalty spot.

The Hoops had not lost a domestic match since May 2016, against St Johnstone, in the penultimate game in charge for Brendan Rodgers's predecessor Ronny Deila.

Last month Celtic broke their own record of a century ago, under another Northern Irish boss, the legendary Willie Maley, when their run reached 63 games unbeaten in Scottish football.
