Hoops ease through

Published Add your comment

Kris Commons, James Forrest and Charlie Mulgrew fired Celtic to a comfortable 3-0 win over Raith Rovers in their William Hill Scottish Cup fifth-round tie at Stark's Park.

The Hoops were knocked out of the Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final by St Mirren at Hampden last Sunday but there was little chance of another shock on Sunday, although the breakthrough did not come until the 56th minute when Commons scored from the spot after he was fouled by Raith defender Simon Mensing.

Irn-Bru First Division side Rovers ran out of steam and in the 82nd minute Forrest, on for Tony Watt, grabbed the second goal, with Mulgrew's fine strike four minutes later completing a solid afternoon's work by the visitors.
