Celtic fans are celebrating a 3-0 Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Aberdeen this afternoon, after goals from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Tom Rogic sent Neil Lennon’s side into the final of the competition.

With the league almost wrapped up, the Hoops are just a few matches away from securing a famous ‘treble treble’.

Hearts await us in the final of the Scottish Cup but we’ll fancy our chances of getting the job done after a superb display against the Dons today.

One of the stand-out performers for many fans was Jonny Hayes, who produced a hardworking shift on the flanks to help his side towards victory.

Luring Dominic Ball into conceding his first of two yellow cards in the first half, Hayes would go on to win a penalty that Edouard stroked home to put the game beyond Derek McInnes’ awful Aberdeen.

He was a threat all afternoon after being something of a surprise on Lennon’s announced teamsheet. He’d made just seven starts this season prior to today’s match.

Hayes gets plenty of criticism for his performances but today was one of his best in a Celtic shirt and he’s receiving deserved praise on social media.

These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Scottish Cup display…

  • Jonny Hayes was outstanding today. The man puts in a shift and is equally good at full back. A fantastic player and a really nice man. Trouble is I’m an Aberdeen fan and it breaks my heart for him to play as well as he did against us
