Video: Craig Levein Refuses to Credit Celtic Striker Vakoun Bayo with Goals Against His Hearts Side

Celtic strolled to a straightforward victory over Hearts this afternoon, with striker Vakoun Bayo credited with two goals in a 3-1 win – but Jambos boss Craig Levein reckons the forward doesn’t deserve credit for either.

Ivory Coast international Bayo was handed his first-ever competitive start for the Hoops at Celtic Park and wasted little time in showing what he can do, with the 22-year-old apparently nabbing two of his side’s three goals, with Callum McGregor scoring the other.

However, when facing the media after the full-time whistle, Craig Levein insisted that both were in-fact own goals, with the first going in off Christophe Berra and the second taking a deflection off Craig Halkett:

Hearts now just have one solitary point from their opening three Premiership fixtures – so is Craig Levein perhaps starting to feel the pressure?

And does Bayo deserve to be credited with the goals?
