Celtic ease into semi-finals

26 October 2011 09:16

Celtic stormed back from a goal down at Easter Road to thrash Hibernian 4-1 and book their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Communities League Cup.

An unfortunate own goal by Hoops defender Daniel Majstorovic after four minutes gave the home side the interval lead, but in a second-half turnaround a James Forrest double and goals from Anthony Stokes and Gary Hooper put the Parkhead men in the hat alongside Kilmarnock and First Division sides Ayr United and Falkirk.

To compound a miserable night for Hibs their winger Ivan Sproule, whose shot had cannoned off Majstorovic for the goal, was sent off by Willie Collum in the 71st minute after picking up a second yellow card for a foul on Forrest.
