Celtic fans are in ecstasy following another late winner courtesy of Odsonne Edouard.

The goal came in a similar manner to Scott Brown’s last gasp goal at Rugby Park.

However, eagle-eyed Hoops fans have noticed the comical reaction by Hearts manager Craig Levein to the winner.


They have taken to social media to poke fun at the dry humoured Gorgie boss.

It isn’t surprising at all to see the Scottish champions on the case of the Hearts boss.

The two have a frosty relationship in the past, especially due to the press conferences by Levein involving Celtic.

If it isn’t long grass, then it’s the treatment of young Harry Cochrane and his on the field battles with Scott Brown.

A video showing Levein’s reaction has been circling social media since full-time, to the amusement of the fans.

The Hoops fans have taken to Twitter to respond themselves to Levein’s religious like response.

This is the positive aspect of Scottish football and someone like the Hearts man will take it on the chin.

Tynecastle isn’t the easiest place to go for The Bhoys which makes the late winner even sweeter.

However, the matches are coming thick and fast for Neil Lennon’s side as they play his former team Hibernian in the cup at Easter Road on Saturday.

For everyone’s sake, the new gaffer will want the game sewn up a little quicker and with more goals.

Lennon has won game one and here’s hoping there will be many more to come.
