Celtic boss Gordon Strachan was proud of his players' efforts after they edged out St Johnstone 2-1 to reach the Scottish FA Cup final.
Two goals from Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink were just enough to see off the first division high-fliers, with the Bhoys also poised to clinch the SPL title in the near future.
Strachan said: "It was a good game in terms of excitement, a lot of shots at goal, a lot of crosses and tackles.
"People got their money's worth and it was a good St Johnstone side who will be a team well suited to the SPL when they get there.
"We are proud that we are 13 points clear in the league, proud that four of our players are in the running for Player of the Year award and now proud to be in the cup final as well."
