Celtic Destroy St Johnstone 5-0 In The Scottish Cup And Remain On Track For A Third Treble.

Here is a quick round up of Celtic’s Scottish cup clash with St Johnstone and also a few key things we all learned about the Celtic squad before and after the winter break.

Scott Sinclair scored a hat-trick and Scott Brown netted his first goal in two years as holders Celtic eased past St Johnstone and into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.

The full Celtic team were pitch perfect today as they are on a quest for glory to retain the Treble for a third time running, more records have been broken as Brendan Rodgers and his Celtic squad have now won 24 consecutive domestic cup games in a row.

This season, in six cup ties, they have scored 16 and conceded just once.

Celtic’s captain Scott Brown managed to score a thirty yard screamer and his first goal in two years, ever since Brown came back from the winter break he’s been amazing and back to his old self, maybe that was a rest well needed.

On another note Oliver Burke’s contribution was all over the park, he never gives up and bombs up an down that pitch without even thinking, Burke has been outstanding since joining from West Brom and fans are screaming for Celtic to splash the cash and sign him.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers: “I said to the players that this would reveal the mentality of them, and to show that level of concentration was very good.

“Oliver Burke has huge potential. He’s just getting back used to playing again, but I thought his running ability was frightening really.”
