Celtic challenged Rangers' lead at the top of the SPL with a 5-0 thumping of Hearts in reply to Rangers' 7-2 thrashing of Falkirk last Saturday.

After ten minutes, Shunsuke Nakamura's off-target volley hit Christophe Berra's arm and flew into the Hearts net. 15 minutes later, Massimo Donati took on two Hearts defenders before sliding home the second. Scott Brown hit home a third 65 minutes in, 1 minute later, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink scored the fourth from the penalty spot and Nakamura curled in the fifth on the 79 minute mark. Chris Killen had a good shot saved by the dispirited Hearts goalkeeper, Steve Banks.
