Celtic come from behind to defeat Hearts

Published 14/01/2007

Celtic stormed back from a goal down to beat Hearts at Tynecastle and

restore their lead at the top of the Bank of Scotland Premier League to 17


Jambos' midfielder Saulius Mikoliunas fired the home side into a first-half

lead with a spectacular drive from 30 yards, but his effort was cancelled out 14

minutes after the break when Hoops striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink equalised

from close range.

And in the 81st minute Jiri Jarosik's powerful drive from the edge of the box

gave the visitors three points.

Hearts swapped Bednar for Michal Pospisil in the 74th minute but still the

visitors dominated.

And in the 81st minute the resurgent Hoops took the lead with a wonderful goal

by Jarosik.

The Czech midfielder skipped past Tall 25 yards from goal and drove a glorious

right-footed shot low past Gordon.
