CELTIC have made it through to the semi final of the League Cup after a high pressured night in Perth.
Celtic’s second half performance merited the win but it was hard work against a St Johnstone side hell bent on frustrating Celtic after Sunday’s loss.
When the goal came, it was a relief to many but none so more than Leigh Griffiths who had squandered many chances before putting away the late goal.
The Celtic striker then ran over to his manager and embraced the Irishman on the touchline to celebrate.
Much has been made of the dressing room atmosphere but if you watch the Celtic team they are all pulling in the same direction and they looked more like the Celtic of old in the second 45 minutes.
Celtic fans are delighted that Leigh got on the scoresheet and that the team showed more fight as the game wore on.
One fan exclaimed they needed the moment between Leigh and Brendan as some sort of cathartic experience.

Celtic have been much better second half. Creating chances, trying forward passes and those who can’t see the performance has got better as the game has gone on don’t know what they’re talking about.

On the basis of his second half performance someone had a word with Callum McGregor at halftime and reminded him he is the best player in Scotland. #Celtic
