@richard_1874: "Never been as nervous or emotional wreck inside!! Not at our best and yet we STILL beat them!!!”

@littlegoldfish8: "So satisfying to see Hearts playing so poorly and still winning 3-0 so happy for Toby Sibbick getting a goal at the end. Composed finish. Shankland however was never a sending off. Neither were yellow card offences.”
