Celtic fans overjoyed with Scottish Cup comeback

When St Mirren went ahead at Celtic Park on Sunday and subsequently saw another chance hit the bar in the second half, it looked like Celtic’s dream of the treble was at serious risk on Sunday.

However, a storming comeback from the Scottish champions provided a 4-1 victory on the day and booked their place in the Scottish Cup semi-finals at Hampden.

It was Harry Davis who gave the Buddies a shock lead, knocking in a headed pass from John Sutton who rose highest and out-muscled Erik Sviatchenko on a high back post cross.

Celtic couldn’t buy a goal in the first half with the likes of Gary Mackay-Steven wasting opportunities in the final third as St Mirren frustrated the Hoops.

Patrick Roberts and then Leigh Griffiths came off the bench to rescue the Bhoys though and both were involved in the equaliser, Griffiths winning a free-kick that Roberts cross in for Mikael Lustig to head home.

From that point on there was only going to be one winner and goals from Scott Sinclair, Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths sealed the victory.

The win means Celtic’s dream of a treble lives on. Of course, the result delighted supporters and they took to Twitter to share their joy with the Scottish Cup win…
