Man Of The Match Vs Celtic Was Too Young To Accept Sky Sports Champagne

Man Of The Match Vs Celtic Was Too Young To Accept Sky Sports Champagne

26 minutes into Hearts and Celtic's game at Tynecastle on Sunday afternoon, Harry Cochrane rifled a left-footed shot past Craig Gordon in the Celtic goal.

Remarkably, Cochrane is just 16-years-old. He was just five months in this world when Gordon made his senior debut - for Hearts - back in 2001.

The young player's goal set in motion a Hearts juggernaut which Celtic could not halt. They won 4-0, bringing to an end Celtic's incredible 69-game unbeaten run.

"It was tough, aye. Scott Brown is a great player. I started to get cramp there towards the end of the game," said Cochrane in a post-match interview with Sky Sports.

His performance, a Man of the Match-winning one, would receive reward in name only. He was told by the Sky Sports reporter Luke Shanley that he was not old enough to receive the Man of the Match bubbly.

French-Serbian forward David Milinkovic, who scored a brace in the game, would instead take the champagne home.

"We can't give you your champagne because of your age. So, Christophe, we'll give that to you and hand it to David Milkinovic, please."
