Watch: Celtic Fire Four Goals Past Hibernian On Way To League Cup Final

The build up to today's early-afternoon Scottish League Cup semi-final between Hibernian and Celtic managed to upset quite a few people.

Attempts at hyping the only cup final pairing that might tempt a floating voter to watch, the niggling presence of Hibernian and Motherwell were all that stood in the way of an Old Firm final broadcasters so desperately want.

Well, in a sparsely populated Hampden Park, Celtic have followed through on their part of the bargain with a 4-2 win over their Edinburgh opponents.

A strong start for the Bhoys had them 2-0 up and cruising at half-time - Tomas Lustig of all people scoring twice.


Yet, not long into the second half, Hibs managed to regain a foothold in affairs - former Celtic and Irish international Anthony Stokes scoring a somewhat contentious penalty.

Celtic did not wait long to restore their two-goal advantage however...

... before Hibernian once again dragged them back into view.


Ultimately though, Celtic - and BT - would go home the happier, tagging on a 4th that all but ended Hibernian's hope of causing an upset.

The other semi-final between Rangers and Motherwell takes place tomorrow at 14.30.
