Five things we learned from Celtic 4-1 St Mirren
Celtic took another massive step towards their ambition of a domestic treble with a victory over St Mirren in the Scottish Cup at Celtic Park on Sunday.
Surviving an early scare, in the end the Bhoys’ quality shone through with an impressive second half showing that sent the Buddies packing despite a spirited first half performance.
That performance saw the Paisley side go into the break 1-0 up thanks to a Harry Davis goal from a John Sutton knock down. At that point in the afternoon things were looking pretty dire for Brendan Rodgers’ team and things could’ve gotten worse early in the second half when a Moussa Dembele mis-kick ricocheted off his own bar.
That Dembele incident seemed to spark the Hoops into life though and, inspired by Rodgers’ substitutions, the team pushed on to eventually blow Jack Ross’ side away with goals from Mikael Lustig, Scott Sinclair, Dembele and Leigh Griffiths.
The win puts them into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup where they’ll face Rangers in a massive clash at Hampden.
