Celtic today booked their place in the Scottish Cup semi-final – where a potential meeting with old rivals Rangers awaits – after the ever present Leigh Griffiths gave them the lead in the first 15 minutes of their quarter-final tie with Greenock Morton.
The forward, who has bagged over 30 goals this season already for his club, added to his tally before Gary Mackay-Steven and Callum McGregor finished the job before half time.
It means we could now be left with a mouth-watering semi-final between the Old Firm when the draw is made at 4:45 today and Griffiths has taken to Twitter to say he can’t wait for the next round.
However, in the same post the 25-year-old joked that he doesn’t like being subbed after TV cameras picked up his mini tantrum following Ronny Deila’s decision to replace him with Patrick Roberts.
Good win today, nice to be back on scoresheet, I don't like being subbed ?. Bring on the semi final ?. ??

The victory will be a relief for Ronny Deila who was under a massive amount of pressure following back to back draws .
