  1. Goodbye

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    So, Celtic book their place in the last four of the Scottish Cup with victory over Hibs at Easter Road.

    Who will join them? Tomorrow afternoon, we have another two quarter final ties:

    • Aberdeen v Rangers (13:30)
    • Dundee United v Inverness CT (15:30 and live on BBC One Scotland)

    Hope you can join us then. Enjoy your Saturday night. Cheers.

  2. We 'fell short' - Heckingbottom

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Hibs coach Paul Heckingbottom: "They played well, but we didn’t quite have enough. Against Rangers on Friday we’ve got to be at our best, be on the front foot and impose our game on them. We did for a spell tonight before the first goal but we just fell short today."

  3. 'Safety at grounds an issue' - Miller

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: It [the bottle-throwing incident] is ridiculous. We talk about VAR on the pitch but we probably should be getting VAR in the stands to make sure we can root this out. We witness these incidents and then nothing seems to be done about it. There's got to be more emphasis on safety at football grounds. It's supposed to be a game where you can come and enjoy it.

  4. 'We were magnificent' - Lennon

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Celtic manager Neill Lennon: "The second half was outstanding, really great control. We were magnificent. Two magnificent goals but it could have been more. The control of the game was absolutely brilliant. At times we could have done a little better with the ball in the final third.

    Neil Lennon

    "We tweaked it a little - John [Kennedy] made a few alterations at half time getting James into that no 10 position where we know he can break the lines.

    "Even though we were controlling the game Hibs were always in it."

  6. 'Passive' Hibs

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Hibs were passive through the game. The tactics were just to contain Celtic which is so unlike them. You’ve got to test Celtic's back four. You’ve got to put them to the test. The delivery from the wide areas was pathetic all night. The first half was dreary, the second half brightened up.
  7. Wins show Celtic 'character' - Forrest

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Celtic winger James Forrest: "A lot happened in the space of a couple of days but I think the club acting so quickly to get the new gaffer in has settled everyone.

    "We've had two tough games, come to two tough places and got two victories. It shows a lot of character in the dressing room."

  8. Hibs 'lack authority'

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Hibs didn’t stamp their authority on the game. They couldn't swap from a defensive shape to an attacking shape after the first goal. Neil Lennon will be happy to have come into Edinburgh twice getting two wins. Celtic were miles ahead of Hibs today and Scott Brown showed good leadership and energy to get himself into that position to score.

  10. Celtic progress

    FT: Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

    Celtic book their place in the last four of the Scottish Cup, courtesy of two stunning strikes by James Forrest and Scott Brown.

    Hibs looked dangerous on the counter but paid dearly for attacks fizzling out on the flanks.

    Stevie Mallan receives a yellow card following a late challenge on Kieran Tierney to compound Hibernian's misery.
