Celtic's record run ends at 69 after hammering by Hearts

Celtic's record run ends at 69 after hammering by Hearts

I thought in the first half particularly they were physically better than us and they thoroughly deserved their lead.

In their midweek victory against Dundee at Tynecastle, a series of withdrawals through injury persuaded Levein that two 16-year-olds, Harry Cochrane and Anthony McDonald, should be part of a midfield that also included 19-year-old Lewis Moore.

Despite that good form Rodgers is keen to keep his team sharp and motivated, demanding that his team focus on remaining defensively sound.

Schiphol airport evacuated as man held
The situation is now safe, the Marechaussee police service said , and the suspect had been detained and removed from the scene. The incident, which sparked a brief evacuation of parts of the airport, was not being treated as an extremist attack.

Teenager Cochrane, just 16, got the hosts off to a flyer after 26 minutes, before ex-Rangers ace Lafferty doubled the lead minutes later.

Rodgers gathered his players on the Tynecastle pitch at full-time and urged the Scottish Premiership leaders to use the frustration of defeat as fuel for another long unbeaten run.

And Rodgers made sure he reserved some praise for his own stars.

That makes sense considering incumbent shortstop Andrelton Simmons is one of the most valuable defenders in the game today. The 32-year-old set career highs with a.297 average, .385 on-base percentage.548 slugging percentage and 24 home runs.

"But I also want to congratulate my players". To have gone through 69 games and this to be their first defeat; of course it's a sore one when you are beaten like that but they can hold their heads up.

After 18 months of pure success on Scottish soil, there is no precedent to point the reaction the Hoops will give to Sunday's bruising.

"Our identity as a team is to defend well first of all", the Celtic boss said.

Members of the Armed Forces will place remembrance wreaths for each branch of the military, as well as one for POW/MIAs and KIAs. Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization that teaches about the service and sacrifice of our nation's veterans.

"I am probably even prouder of my players because we have managed to break that run". They did everything they could to run the miles they needed to to shut Celtic down. All credit to the players.
