Celtic's hopes of a domestic treble are one step closer to reality after a 4-1 win over St. Mirren at Celtic Park earlier today.

St. Mirren took a shock lead after Harry Davis converted from close range from a John Sutton cross.

The visitors nearly doubled their lead only for Lewis Morgan to fire over the bar but St. Mirren held firm until half-time with their lead intact. 

Celtic emerged a different team after the break in a quest to keep their dreams of a domestic treble alive.

Two goals in the space of as many minutes from Mikael Lustig and Scott Sinclair turned the tie on its head.

Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths added further goals to keep the Glasgow side on course for their first Scottish Cup win since 2013 and now advance to the semi-final.
