Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic go into this Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final knowing that a win against Inverness CT will deliver a World Record amount of Trebles. Having defeated Greenock Morton in the Fourth Round, St Mirren in the Fifth Round, trumping Hearts at Tynecastle before a Semi-Final fixture against Rangers.
A first half header from Jota won the game for Ange Postecoglou’s side and now puts them ninety minutes away from completing the Treble. Celtic were composed and probed Rangers with McGregor making a few sharp stops to deny Johnston and Jota.
Celtic were in control for large parts of the game and were able to weather the storm of Rangers possession in the second half. The Scottish Champions were robust in defence and were worthy winners on a day that Michael Beale’s side only really had one clear cut chance.
Celtic: Hart; Johnston (Ralston 54′), Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor, O’Riley (Mooy 66′), McGregor, Hatate (Iwata 66′), Jota (Haksabanovic 66′), Kyogo (Oh 84′), Maeda.
The celebrations at the end were brilliant as the team and supporters enjoyed another victory over their city rivals. The win would send the Celts to the Scottish Cup Final, where Inverness CT were already waiting, having beaten Falkirk the day before.
