Hearts v Celtic: Craig Levein plots shock victory repeat for Jambos
Last Updated: 04/05/18 8:05pm
Hearts boss Craig Levein is plotting another shock victory over Celtic after ending their 69-game unbeaten domestic run earlier this season.
The Jambos were 4-0 winners over the league champions at Tynecastle in December to inflict Brendan Rodgers' first domestic defeat as boss - but Levein said the Bhoys would be careful to avoid a repeat of that game.
"I hope we can [do it again]," he told the club's website. "I don't know if we'll catch Celtic by surprise this time, the fact that we managed to win the last time at Tynecastle, I think they'll be wary about us this time around."
Rodgers was magnanimous in his assessment of the fixture from earlier in the season, with two more league defeats following that loss in the Scottish capital since.
But after a 5-0 win over Rangers last weekend, the club wrapped up a seventh successive league title at Celtic Park, and will be given a guard of honour by their hosts on Sunday.
"We were beaten by the better team on the day," said Rodgers.
"We had an incredible run of 69 games, it may never be done again and Hearts were the better team on the day.
"We are off the back of a brilliant performance where we played really well.
"We got the scoreline we wanted to wrap up the league and we have three league games to finish and we would like to finish them as strong as we can."
Striker Moussa Dembele and midfielder Stuart Armstrong should return to the Celtic squad for the clash against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.
Both players missed last week's title-clincher against Rangers at Parkhead with knocks.
Nir Bitton (knee) and Jonny Hayes (broken leg) are still out.
