The atmosphere was it's useful combustive self and the game was truly a cracker.
Rudi Skacel and Ryan Stevenson were on target as Hearts moved up to fourth place in the Scottish Premier League with a win over 10-man Celtic.
Fifty-eight minutes into the contest, Skacel drilled in a great strike from 16 yards.
Celtic then had midfielder Kris Commons sent off for an ugly, late challenge on Adrian Mrowiec.
Hearts sealed the points when Stevenson picked up a clever back-heel from David Templeton to crash home a shot.
A selection of photos are shown below. Most of them came after the final whistle as quite frankly I was too busy going mental during the match itself!

Looking toward the away end. note the gaps in the corners following the trouble of last season.

A sportman like hand shake for Sergio from Majstorovic.
