Two goals from Mikey Johnston earned Celtic a 2-1 victory over Hearts as the champions finished their season on a high at Celtic Park.

Johnston scored Celtic’s quickest goal of their Scottish Premiership season with one minute and 22 seconds on the clock, before Jake Mulraney equalised in the 18th minute after capitalising on a sloppy giveaway by Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain.

Sixteen-year-old Karamoko Dembele came off the bench to lift the Celtic players and supporters after half time and the hosts’ growing attacking momentum paid off as Johnston scored the winner in the 84th minute.

Celtic, who had already wrapped up their eighth successive title ahead of Sunday’s clash, finish the Scottish Premiership campaign on 87 points.
