Effortless from Brendan Rodgers’ side
Celtic smashed 5 past lowly Brechin City in their Scottish Cup encounter at Celtic Park. By far the best side in Scotland, the defending champions were ruthless from start to finish to ensure their passage into the 5th round tie.
The difference in quality was evident on the pitch as the Hoops dominated possession early on, picking and prodding at the visitors’ backline straight from kick-off.
Their patience eventually paid off after knitting a fine 49-pass move which was eventually finished off by James Forrest with any Brechin player yet to register a touch on the ball.
Scott Sinclair, who has so often been the spark for the hosts, once again turned provider as he jinked his way past challenges in the opposition penalty area before laying the assist for his teammate.
