There was so much going on during and after the game at Celtic Park on Sunday you might have missed this moment of class by Joe Hart at the full time whistle.

Celtic had just blown away St Johnstone with a 7-0 thrashing and solidifying their spot at the top of the table.

As an away goalkeeper, when you lose seven goals, it’s not been a good day at the office. However, Zander Clarke saved his team from getting a double digit doing on the day.

At the end of the game when the players were walking off the pitch, Joe Hart went right over to his St Johnstone counterpart and embraced him – you could see he was having a quick chat with Zander too.

You love to see sportsmanship like that. Joe will know how it feels after debilitating defeat.

St Johnstone were no match for Celtic on the day and the goalkeeper couldn’t do much about many of the goals. Celtic were on fire.

The match was scintillating from start to finish and really brought a party atmosphere out at Celtic Park.

Celtic have five games left this season and are in control of their own destiny when it comes to the league title.
