Celtic effectively wrap up Scottish title


Celtic effectively put the Scottish title beyond the reach of Rangers after coming from behind to beat Hearts 4-1 on Saturday.

The victory put Celtic nine points and 22 goals ahead of last season’s champions Rangers, who have three games left starting with Sunday’s Ibrox clash with Dundee United.

Ellis Simms threatened to spoil the party when he fired Hearts into an early lead.

But Celtic turned the game around before half-time through goals from Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi.

Matt O’Riley’s goal midway through the second half put the game and the destiny of the title beyond doubt and Giorgos Giakoumakis netted in the final minute.
