Player ratings; Hearts v Celtic

Nov 3 2008 Compiled By Craig Swan


Janos Balogh 5
Early misjudgment with punch that allowed Maloney to score. Unlucky at second goal after superb save.

Eggert Jonsson 5
Tough time with Maloney's movement a constant problem.

Christophe Berra 6
Furious at loss of two set-piece goals. Tried to organise and almost netted.

Marius Zaliukas 4
Lithuanian stopper never looked comfortable before seeing red in 51 minutes for hauling back McDonald.

Lee Wallace 6
Full-back relished the battle against Brown on Hearts' left. Never gave up.

Christos Karapidis 6
Tried to act as shield for the back four but found runners going past him.

Deividas Cesnauskis 3
Injury jinx struck just 34 minutes into his first start of season.

Bruno Aguiar 6
Swamped by Celtic's midfield power. Dead balls a decent threat.

Michael Stewart 5
Left an early marker on Robson and it cost the opening goal. Struggled.

Andy Driver 5
Tried to drive at Hinkel. Free-kick just wide but no clinical contribution.

Christian Nade 5
Lone shift in attack and got little joy from McManus and Caldwell.

Subs: Saulius Mikoliunas - replaced Cesnauskis on right, 2. Jamie Mole - swapped sole attacker duties with Nade, 2. Ruben Palazuelos - got last 10 minutes, 1.


Artur Boruc 6
Little to do and helped by Wilson in one shaky moment.

Andy Hinkel 7
Physical battle seemed to inspire him. One of his better Celtic displays.

Gary Caldwell 8
Solid at the back and lent a "hand" at other end with second goal.

Stephen McManus 7
Launched into tackles and first-half block from Aguiar typified attitude.

Mark Wilson 7
Given the left-back slot and pushed back Cesnauskis then Mikoliunas.

Shaun Maloney 7
Textbook technique for half-volley that gave his side the lead. Lively before making way for McGeady.

Paul Hartley 8
Penalty miss didn't spoil composed display. Good positional sense.

Scott Brown 8
Calm in possession and chose right options. Maturity shining through.

Barry Robson 8
Revelled in central role. Hussled, tackled and passed. Excellent.

Cillian Sheridan 7
Intelligent movement and took the physical brunt.

Scott McDonald 7
Part in Caldwell goal with brave header. Came short and tried to play off Sheridan's touches.

Subs: Aiden McGeady - drifted around after replacing Maloney, 3. Massimo Donati - anchored engine room, 2. Paddy McCourt - late outing, 1.
