Hearts hilariously take to Twitter to moan about brilliant Celtic goal

Celtic secured a 1-0 win against Hearts tonight at Paradise, but there’s debate about the legitimacy of Kyogo’s fine finish.

Hearts supporters were incensed when the Japanese striker wasn’t given offside. Despite it looking as if Kyogo was level, if not behind Ralston when the pass was made, there was plenty of reaction online.

Chiefly, from Hearts’ Twitter account. The club’s reaction said it all, despite presumably having a decent view of the goal [HMFC].

A penny for their reaction when Abada’s goal at Tynecastle was ruled out.

Kyogo, who scored against Hearts in the Premier Sports Cup meeting between the sides, was in prime position after a clever run in the box. Ralston found him with ease, although he did injure himself in the process.

It would be Celtic’s only goal on the night. Despite domination from the hosts, Hearts did well to keep the Bhoys from adding to their lead.

With a frenetic, boundless zip to their game, Celtic absolutely flooded the Hearts box on countless occasions. Although the Jambos threatened in the second half, it was the Hoops that came away with the three points.

Hearts reaction to Celtic goal is priceless

Yeah, fine, it was a tight one. It was, though, the epitome of excellent movement from a striker.

Kyogo found pockets of space between a rigid defensive line, and wasn’t picked up whatsoever.

It was excellent stuff, and it proved vital as Celtic held on to a 1-goal lead in a breathless 90 minutes.

Forrest hit the post in the first half, while Turnbull hit a neat shot just past the post late on.

Kyogo gets accused of a fair amount. Critics say he goes down too easily, or that he has a tendency of scoring in “less important” matches. He’s disproved countless critics since coming to Celtic.

It was him, though, that made the key difference tonight.

And his positioning for the goal was sublime.
