Celtic vs Hearts LIVE score as Vakoun Bayo earns his first ever start for the Hoops


Neil Lennon knows all about dealing with the pressures that come with managing Celtic so the Hoops boss will be enjoying the pressure release after his side’s 2-0 win over AIK.

That Euro statement of intent has supporters onside again but the Irishman will be wary of taking an instant step back against Hearts today.

The heat is always on at Celtic Park and the Jambos would love nothing more than making the Hoops sweat on a sun-kissed Sunday afternoon.

Craig Levein was buoyed by his side’s Betfred Cup win over Motherwell last week and will be hoping to gain some momentum by earning a big Premiership result in Glasgow.

The Hoops have freshened up their starting XI after and supporters will be buoyed to see Fraser Forster earn an instant recall after returning on loan from Southampton. There’s also a first star for Vakoun Bayo.

And Levein also has an ace up his sleeve as he hands a first start to Glenn Whelan.

Celtic: Forster, Ajer, Jullien, Bitton, Bolingoli, Brown, McGregor, Christie, Ntcham, Forrest, Bayo. Subs: Gordon, Ralston, Hayes, Shved, Johnston, Griffiths, Edouard.

Hearts: Pereira, Smith, Berra, Halkett, Hickey, Mulraney, Damour, Whelan, Irving, Clare, Washington. Subs: Doyle, White, Bozanic, Ikpeazu, Brandon, Dikamona, Henderson.
