Greg Taylor cut the ball back for Callum McGregor to make it 3-0, before Taylor’s cross was deflected into the path of Ryan Christie for 4-0, with Kristoffer Ajer heading in number five.

 

A late red card for Marcel Langer compiled the misery for Hearts, who sit bottom of the table, whilst Celtic moved another step closer to the title with this win, as Rangers lost at Kilmarnock.

It was a comfortable night for Celtic, and Neil Lennon will be delighted with the performance of left back Taylor as he laid on two goals.

The Scot has struggled for consistent playing time since signing from Kilmarnock in September, with Boli Bolingoli and Jonny Hayes also in contention to play at left back or left wing back.

Taylor is in the side now though, and having picked up a couple of assists, fans have been taking to Twitter to rave about the 22-year-old's performance.

Supporters took to Twitter to praise Taylor as 'quality', 'different class' and 'outstanding', believing that this was his best performance for the club yet, and he's now stamping his authority on the left back position, pushing himself 'miles ahead' of Bolingoli and Hayes.
