Celtic 3 - 0 Aberdeen
Celtic are now tantalisingly close to completing an astonishing ‘treble treble’ after sweeping aside an imploding Aberdeen side to secure their place in next month’s Scottish Cup Final against Hearts.

Celtic are now tantalisingly close to completing an astonishing ‘treble treble’ after sweeping aside an imploding Aberdeen side to secure their place in next month’s Scottish Cup Final against Hearts.

Neil Lennon’s prospects of upgrading his interim management status to a longer term second spell in charge of Celtic surely received a significant boost as goals from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Tom Rogic kept him firmly on course to complete the job started by Brendan Rodgers.

For Derek McInnes, it was another unhappy afternoon at Hampden. The Aberdeen manager saw his team reduced to nine men with the dismissals of Dominic Ball and Lewis Ferguson, while he and his assistant Tony Docherty were both sent to the stand by referee Craig Thomson.

Hibernian 0 - 2 Celtic
With a howitzer of an individual strike from James Forrest and an imperious finish from Scott Brown allowing Celtic to run out comfortable winners from their Scottish Cup quarter-final at Easter Road, Neil Lennon was entitled to feel it is suddenly like the early 2010s all over again.

With a howitzer of an individual strike from James Forrest and an imperious finish from Scott Brown allowing Celtic to run out comfortable winners from their Scottish Cup quarter-final at Easter Road, Neil Lennon was entitled to feel it is suddenly like the early 2010s all over again.

Indeed, he ought to be pinching himself at how events have panned out on the back of tumult and turmoil that buffeted the Scottish champions with the fast flit of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City on Tuesday. As if easing into a pair of comfortable old slippers, Lennon has taken up residence again in his spiritual home and serenely moved his club closer to a treble treble through adding the scalp of his old club Hibernian to that of Hearts across a matter of days and extending the record run of domestic cup wins to 25.

Celtic 3 - 0 Airdrieonians
Aside from a goal on his debut from late substitute Timothy Weah, there appeared to be little of lasting note about the Scottish Cup holders overwhelming a stoic Airdrieonians.

Aside from a goal on his debut from late substitute Timothy Weah, there appeared to be little of lasting note about the Scottish Cup holders overwhelming a stoic Airdrieonians. Except that in notching the 3-0 victory Celtic recorded a 23rd straight domestic cup win under Brendan Rodgers.

His cup run now equals the record set by Walter Smith’s Rangers side between 1992 and 1994. Celtic will now take to the pitch for their

fifth-round tie next month knowing that success will ensure the longest sequence of cup wins in the annals of Scottish football.
