Forrest pair leads Celtic out of wood
Hibernian 1 Celtic 4
Thursday 27 October 2011
Celtic stormed back from a goal down at Easter Road to thrash Hibernian and book their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Communities League Cup last night.
An unfortunate own goal by Hoops defender Daniel Majstorovic after four minutes gave the home side the interval lead, but in a second-half turnaround a James Forrest double and goals from Anthony Stokes and Gary Hooper put the Parkhead men in the hat alongside Kilmarnock and First Division sides Ayr United and Falkirk.
To compound a miserable night for Hibs their winger Ivan Sproule, whose shot had cannoned off Majstorovic for the goal that gave them hope, was sent off by referee Willie Collum in the 71st minute after picking up a second yellow card for a foul on Forrest.
