Celtic alone at the top in Scotland

11:43 am on 29 November 2012

Celtic moved a point clear at the top of the Scottish Premier League football competition as they returned to winning ways with a 4-0 victory over Hearts at Tynecastle.

The Hoops hadn't scored in the first half of their past five league matches but ended that run in spectacular fashion with three goals in the first half hour.

Hearts' Edinburgh rivals Hibernian are just a point behind Celtic after securing a 1-0 win away to St Johnstone.
