An Anthony Stokes hat-trick helped Celtic into the fifth round of the William Hill Scottish Cup with a 3-0 win against a stubborn Peterhead at Balmoor.

The Hoops had struggled to break down a well-organised Peterhead defence before the Irishman slotted the ball home eight minutes before the break.

And Stokes drilled home a second after 57 minutes after linking up with Emilio Izaguirre before netting a third in the closing stages to end any hopes of a Blue Toon comeback.
