360 Sports clients Harry Cochrane and Jamie Brandon played major roles for Hearts in ending Celtic’s domestic run of 69 games without defeat with a 4-0 win at Tynecastle on Sunday.
The two teenagers were part of the incredible Jambos performance that put Celts to the sword against a Scottish club for the first time since manager Brendan Rodgers took over back in 2016.
Brandon had a terrific game on the right-hand side of a back-four and shackled last season’s Player of the Year Scott Sinclair with relative ease, stifling the Englishman’s creativity and keeping him quiet for the entire 90 minutes.
Cochrane at just 16-years-old showed maturity and skill far beyond his years and put in a stand-out shift – picking up Sky Sports man of the match award at the full-time whistle.
The youngster spoke in the build-up to the game about his excitement of going up against Hoops captain Scott Brown in the centre of midfield but Harry controlled much of the action and buzzed around the Scotland international, giving him no time on the ball to make things happen for Celts.
An outstanding achievement for the Jam Tarts and a huge congratulations to Harry and Jamie on their performances and contributions to the game.
Well done lads!
