Celtic have come from a goal down to beat Heart of Midlothian 3-1 in the Scottish Premiership.

Kyle Lafferty opened the scoring before Dedryck Boyata headed in the equaliser before the break.

Moussa Dembele gave Celtic the lead in the second half as they moved to 12 points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table before Sinclair sealed the deal deep into stoppage time.

John Souttar had a goal disallowed after heading in in the 15th minute. A foul on Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain in the buildup stopped Hearts going ahead.

Lafferty did give Hearts the lead three minutes later though, volleying in from 16 yards to score his 18th goal of the season.

The lead lasted for just four minutes when Olivier Ntcham floated a free-kick towards the back post for Boyata to head in.

Dembele struck the winner five minutes after the restart when he scored at the back post after Tom Rogic’s 30-yard pass and Scott Sinclair scored deep into stoppage time to seal the deal for Celtic.
