Celtic boss Neil Lennon has hailed his side's performance as they bounced back from defeat at the weekend to crush Hearts 4-0.
The Hoops suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Inverness at the weekend and the pressure was on Lennon and his players to get a result in the Capital and they responded in style.
Lassad Nouioui and Mikael Lustig grabbed goals in the opening 22 minutes to set them on their way before and own goal from Ryan Stevenson wrapped up the win before half-time.
Gary Hooper concluded the scoring seven minutes from time to leave Lennon delighted.
"We played with great intensity and pace to our game, but it's the players who do it and I got a much better reaction from them," the manager told the club's website.
"Lassad came into the team and played very well. The back four were excellent and I thought Charlie Mulgrew had an excellent game at left-back, so we were back to the levels that I know we can play at and, obviously, we've got a very strong midfield, so it was a great team performance.
"We looked dangerous. There was a spark and a tempo to us that was a lot more like us."
