Celtic are through to the final of the Scottish Cup after a thumping 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Hampden on Sunday.
Goals from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Tom Rogic ensured Neil Lennon’s side are just one major step away from a famous ‘treble treble’ of domestic trophies.
While the goalscorers stole the headlines, it was another in the first-team who caught the eye of many supporters – defender Jozo Simunovic.
The centre-back proved to be more of an offensive weapon than a defensive shield throughout the 90 minutes, carrying the ball into Aberdeen’s half on a consistent basis and even finding himself on the end of a number of shooting opportunities.
He was unlucky not to score in the fixture, delighting fans with his swashbuckling display.
The 24-year-old has been criticised for his performances over the last 18 months, but if he can produce that kind of performance on a consistent basis he will soon be a hero with supporters.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday form…
Stroll in the park. Jozo van Dijk and Jonny Hayes outstanding. James Forrest rising to the occasion once again. Brown bossed it in the middle of that park. A class above.

Arguably Jozo's best performance in a Celtic shirt

Jozo Simunovic has been playing like the £5.5m defender we signed a few years ago since coming back into the team under Lennon.
