A stunning Ryan Christie opener followed by an Odsonne Edouard penalty have Neil Lennon’s men on the brink of a quadruple treble and the Hoops fans are lapping it up.

Marc McArdle (@marcmcardle1): Half time, 2-0! Couldn’t really have asked for much more. Scott Brown strolling about reminding guys like Halliday and Naismith who owns Hampden. Two quality goals. Still issues with buildup play which basically leaves Édouard 20 yards up the pitch himself but overall excellent

Ryan McGinlay (@TheRyanMcGinlay): Don’t take your foot off the gas. I want to see tears.

Shaun (@TheTweetofShaun): The first time in a long time 45 minutes of watching Celtic has flown in. I can't remember the last time it was this enjoyable.

Frimmers (@I_C_Celtic): Where’s this been all season. Incredible from the bhoys. Buzzing for the Quadruple.

LAWELL AND DESMOND OUT (@lawelloutnow): Lovely to see Brown noising up two average Rangers fans. Can we please have Soro though to add some pace to the midfield.

Mike McV (@mmcveighbhoy7): Anyone commenting on why Soro should be starting? Nope, not anymore. Brown selection well and truly justified. He's ran the midfield, last 20 mins especially. Hazard very uncertain though

Terry O'Brien (@terry_obrien86): A fantastic performance so far from #CelticFC. Brown & Ajer have been outstanding. The goals were wonderful in different ways. If I had one negative - Communication at the back still dodgy.

Robert Smith (@Robert_Smith95): People going wild should remember its hearts. This is the bare minimum when it comes to a performance. Buzzing for this. Still. Lennon out
