CELTIC FIGHT BACK TO KEEP TREBLE ON TRACK

0

CELTIC survived a scare before booking their place in the Scottish Cup semi-final with a comeback 4-1 win over St Mirren at Parkhead this afternoon.

Harry Davis silenced Parkhead with his 14th-minute goal from close range after a well-worked free-kick.

A Moussa Dembele miskick hit his own crossbar in the 53rd minute before the Hoops came storming back at the Championship strugglers.

The Premiership pacesetters had laboured, but two goals in quick succession from Mikael Lustig and Scott Sinclair got them back on track.

Dembele added a third with his 32nd goal of the season with substitute Leigh Griffiths, on for Nir Bitton, firing in the fourth as Brendan Rodgers’ side extended their unbeaten domestic run since the start of the season to 34 games.

Before the excitement there was a pre-match minute’s silence in tribute to Tommy Gemmell, the Lisbon Lion’ goalscoring full-back who died on Thursday at the age of 73.
