Later, the new manager praised James Forrest’s opening goal, resulted from a stunning counter-attack.

However, Lennon was unhappy on his side conceding a penalty that led to the equalizer. (h/t BBC Football)

“We made it a lot more uncomfortable than it should have been. It was a sloppy goal to give away.

“We shouldn’t have given the ball away, all it does is give Hearts encouragement and something to hold on to.”
