Adam Virgo has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Celtic’s defeat to Heart of Midlothian at the weekend.

Celtic suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Hearts away from home at Tynecastle Park in Edinburgh in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon.

The result saw Brendan Rodgers’s side's 69-game unbeaten run in domestic football in Scotland come to an end.

The Glasgow giants were expected to win against Hearts, and the manner in which the Hoops fell apart came as a huge surprise.

Former Celtic player Virgo has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the defeat for Brendan Rodgers’s side.

Meanwhile, former Hibernian and Hearts midfielder Michael Stewart, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport, has stated on Twitter that Rangers were very bad defensively against Tynecastle.

Ahead of the match against Hearts, former Celtic midfielder and manager David Hay backed Leigh Griffiths to return to the team.

Griffiths has struggled to play regularly for the Celtic first team due to competition from Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard.

The Scotland international striker, though, started against Hearts and played for the entire 90 minutes.

Hay wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times: “Football is full of twists and turns, and he will eventually get an opportunity again – and he will know what to do to get his starting place back for Celtic. Work, graft and fight. He has, after all, done it before.”

Meanwhile, Aberdeen winger Gary Mackay-Steven has suggested that they are the second best team in Scotland.

The 27-year-old is a former Celtic player, and seems to have suggested that Aberdeen are better than Rangers at the moment.

"We really feel that behind Celtic we're the best team in the country,” Mackay-Steven told BBC Sport. ”We wanted to show that and I felt we did that.

"The last few years Aberdeen have been second place comfortably. We're used to winning so there's a real winning mentality regardless of Hibs, Rangers or whoever it may be who's around us in the table.”
