’s coverage of Celtic’s 3-1 win over Hearts at Tynecastle took a hammering from angry hoops supporters.

and Stephen Craigan were the main culprits with their ambivalent attitude to the brutality from the home side and grudging praise for the champions.

When Steven Naismith deliberately put his boot into Scott Brown’s groin as the Celtic skipper went into a slide tackle there was barely a word of condemnation. It was a straight red card offence that Bobby Madden allowed to go unpunished.

When wee Naisy then went over the ball into the ankle of James Forrest there was the same reaction.

Possible transfers of Tom Rogic and Moussa Dembele were discussed with enthusiasm with little mentioned to support the prospect of both players staying at Celtic.

When Celtic did score the first observations were to criticise the Hearts defending, only later was the quality of the scorers recognised.
