Celtic fans are celebrating progression into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup after a superb 2-0 win away to Hibernian on Saturday evening.

With the pressure huge on Neil Lennon’s side after the departure of Brendan Rodgers this week, the Hoops managed to up their game in the second half of the encounter and net two tremendous goals through James Forrest and Scott Brown.

Nobody really expected to pick up two wins from two in Edinburgh after Rodgers’ walkout on Tuesday, but Lennon and his backroom staff have pulled it off.

One of the big performers in both matches has been Israeli midfielder Nir Bitton, who is getting his first sustained run in the team since a debilitating injury that kept him out for the majority of 2018.

He is keeping the Hoops ticking over in the middle of the park and while he may not be the most ambitious or attacking midfielder, he has been a brilliant under the radar performer.

These fans are loving his performances, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Saturday display…
