CELTIC are heading to Hampden after they strolled to a 3-0 win at Tynecastle, sending the home support away early.
Aaron Mooy was on the scoresheet again, with Kyogo getting his 26th goal of the season. Carter-Vickers headed home Celtic’s third goal to confirm the Celts would be heading back to Hampden. It really was a “perfect” draw for the Celts.
Interestingly, Kyogo is 11 goals away from equalling Larsson’s tally after two seasons with the club, not a bad record, all things considered.
As Celtic look to the draw on Monday night to find out their opponents for the last weekend in April, here are three talking points from Saturday’s win in the capital.
Celtic’s New Wizard of Oz?
Tom Rogic was a magnificent player for Celtic, helping the team win many, many trophies, but the impact Aaron Mooy has had on this side is unbelievable. To think Postecoglou brought him to Glasgow for free is amazing.
Some of his play is sensational, the way he picks up the ball and can create something magical with it. His boots are like a magnet to the ball. He doesn’t have any trouble scoring either; the 32-year-old has scored seven goals in Celtic colours, with three of them coming in the Scottish Cup.
Celtic’s Win Streak
The win takes Celtic on the best winning streak in six years. It’s 13 wins in a row, the best form Celtic have been in since Brendan Rodgers’ time as Celtic boss, when the side went 17 wins in a row. Will Ange Postecoglou’s side emulate that?
The win takes Celtic one step closer to the treble, as they check off the games. With the League Cup in the bag, a significant lead in the league, the Scottish Cup stands in the way of Ange Postecoglou’s first treble as Celtic manager.
Of course, there are two big games between Celtic and the cup, but they’ll certainly fancy their chances. They showed that The Rangers, who will likely progress against Raith Rovers, are no match for them in the League Cup final, and they should be able to defeat the remaining teams in the competition.
However, Ange Postecoglou won’t allow his team to think about lifting the Scottish Cup, before they’re in a position to.
