WATCH: Forrest Scores Rocket As Neil Lennon Returns To Easter Road

James Forrest made sure Neil Lennon had a victorious return to Easter Road this evening, producing an absolute stunner to give his side the vital opening goal. The former Hibs manager only left the Edinburgh club a month ago under controversial circumstances, and he looked on as his new charges come out on top 2-0, reaching the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup in the process.

The Celtic interim manager side were being held until the 60th minute, before Forrest opened the scoring with an absolute peach of a strike, and from then on Celtic's progression to the next round was never in doubt.

Scott Brown doubled Celtic's lead a few minutes later, with a cracker of his own.

But it was Forrest's goal which had people talking. It was the Scottish international's nineteenth goal of the season and perhaps his best one yet. The result sees Celtic complete 25 domestic cup wins in a row.

The victory caps off a whirlwind week for the Parkhead faithful, who began the week with Brendan Rodgers in charge and end it with back to back victories under former manager Lennon. Celtic supporters have come in for criticism over their reaction to Rodgers decision to return to the Premier League, with some supporters bringing banners to Celtic Park in protest of Rodgers decision to join Leicester.
