Just over 24 after Brendan Rodgers slipped out the back door to take up the job at Leicester City, Celtic have gone to Tyncastle and sealed a valuable victory.
Neil Lennon made his managerial comeback as the Celts beat Hearts 2-1 with a late winner from Edouard.
Forrest opened the scoring on 35 minutes with a sweeping counter attack with a pinpoint pass from Burke finding the winger at the back post.
The Jambos went in at half time with an equaliser from the penalty spot just before the 45 minute mark.
The game plan from the home side was obvious for the second half, sit back and take a point. The hoops struggled to penetrate a solid defence.
However, in the final minutes of the game, an accurate cross from Scott Brown was touched deftly into the back of the net by Edouard handing all 3 points to the boys in green.
