How the Hearts players rated in Premier Sports Cup loss to Celtic

Hearts’ winning run to start the season came to an end against Celtic during a difficult afternoon at times.

Robbie Neilson’s men fell to a 3-2 defeat at Parkhead as they exit the Premier Sports Cup and the club's long run without winning the League Cup continues.

Odsonne Edouard opened the scoring seconds after the Hearts boss tweaked the system before Stephen Welsh added a second from a corner.

Hearts spent long spells without the ball and struggled to pose much of an attacking threat. That improved after the break and Liam Boyce scored a penalty before Kyogo Furuhashi restored the two-goal lead. Aaron McEneff netted late on.

How did the players involved rate out of ten?

Player ratings scale - 10: One of the best performances you've seen. 9: Outstanding. 8: Very good. 7: Good. 6: Average. 5: Poor, 4: Very poor. 3: A terrible day at the office. 2: Abysmal. 1: One of the worst performances you've seen.
