Celtic reached the final of the Scottish Cup with a thrilling 4-3 victory after extra time against Dundee United at Hampden Park.

Anthony Stokes scored a dramatic winner in the 104th minute. Kris Commons gave Celtic an 83-second lead, but Gary Mackay-Steven levelled before Jon Daly headed United in front.

Victor Wanyama replied and then Commons put Celtic ahead after the break before Daly headed an equaliser to extend the tie beyond 90 minutes. It was the second Scottish Cup semi-final to end 4-3 in two days after Hibernian came from 3-0 down to defeat Falkirk on Saturday.
