Celtic: Fans lambaste Hearts manager Craig Levein for post-match comments

Celtic continued their perfect start to the Scottish Premiership season with a 3-1 home win over Hearts yesterday, with Vakoun Bayo scoring twice for the Hoops.

Not everyone was convinced that the 22-year-old got two of Celtic’s goals yesterday, though, with Hearts manager Craig Levein insisting that both were own goals, according to post-match reaction that was shared by Clyde 1 Superscoreboard (@ClydeSSB) on Twitter.

Levein claimed that Bayo’s first goal went in off Christophe Berra’s hip and then said that the Ivorian striker’s second, a flicked finish to make it 3-0, owed primarily to the ball hitting off Craig Halkett’s toe on its way to the net.

Bayo joined Celtic in January but has had to be patient in waiting for first team action, having only made three substitute appearances totalling eight minutes prior to being handed his first start for the club yesterday.

While Levein was convinced that his team scored two own goals at Celtic Park, the official SPFL website has credited Bayo with a brace from the match.

These Celtic fans took to Twitter afterwards to castigate Levein for his attempts to take the goals off Bayo:
