Watch: Celtic denied point by two sensational Craig Gordon saves
Celtic were denied a draw in their opening SPFL match against Hearts following two sensational late saves by 38-year-old goalkeeper Craig Gordon.
New manager Ange Postecoglou entered his first league match in charge knowing Celtic needed a victorious start to keep pace with champions Rangers.
But Celtic fell to a shock 2-1 defeat against their newly-promoted opponents at Tynecastle following John Souttar’s late header.
Celtic pushed hard for an equaliser and were denied twice by Gordon.
The former Sunderland goalkeeper, who also had a spell at Parkhead, had to be quick off his line to deny James Forrest with a smart save.
And, from the following corner, Gordon pulled off an acrobatic stop to deny a thumping header from defender Carl Starfelt and secure a priceless win for Hearts.
Celtic’s miserable start to the season continues as Saturday’s defeat followed their Champions League exit to Danish side Midtjylland.
