Hearts manager Sergio: Everyone just worried about Celtic's problems

Heart of Midlothian manager Paulo Sergio feels his side have not got enough credit for beating Celtic in last weekend's Scottish Cup semi-final.

The Jambos were awarded a controversial penalty in the final minute of regular time which Craig Beattie converted to give the Edinburgh club a 2-1 win at Hampden, booking their place in the cup final with arch enemies Hibernian on May 19.

Much has been written and said about the handball decision made by referee Euan Norris but Sergio feels there has been too much moaning from the Glasgow giants whose leveler from Gary Hooper came with a hint of offside.

"It's a pity we did not get the credit we deserved. People were only talking about Celtic's comments and problems," Sergio said.

"At our penalty, I saw two fouls - an elbow and a handball - if that wasn't a penalty then I don't know.

"I also saw the ball hit Andy Webster's hip. I didn't get a great view at the time, but I saw them on television afterwards.

"I also don't understand why no one has spoken about their goal being offside."
