Celtic produced another statement win on Saturday afternoon, destroying league leaders Hearts 5-0 at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.

There’s no doubting that Craig Levein’s side capitalised well on the Hoops’ slow start to the season, forging ahead at the top of the table, but Celtic are back and they made clear their intentions this afternoon.

A double from Odsonne Edouard alongside goals from Filip Benkovic, James Forrest and Ryan Christie provided the victory, which puts Brendan Rodgers’ side just one point behind the Edinburgh side with a game in hand.

It was a superb afternoon with plenty of big performances, but it was midfielder Callum McGregor who caught the eye of most supporters.

His dominating midfield display had Hearts on the back-foot throughout, looking every bit the long-term replacement for Scott Brown many have touted him as. With performances like this, he might even be an upgrade.

The homegrown talent had fans buzzing, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
