Scottish Cup fifth-round win.

Dundee 0 Celtic 2: Hoops set the tempo in Scottish Cup fifth-round win
Celtic's quest for a domestic treble remains firmly on course after an impressive 2-0 win over Dundee in their William Hill Scottish Cup fifth-round tie at Dens Park.

Striker Leigh Griffiths headed the Hoops into the lead in the seventh minute with his third goal in four games and the home side were only still in the tie at the interval thanks to keeper Scott Bain.

The Scottish Premiership leaders, who face Dundee United in next month's Scottish League Cup final at Hampden Park, doubled their lead through midfielder Stefan Johansen at the start of the second half. Paul Hartley's side, who went into the match unbeaten in their last six outings, struggled to live with the ferocious tempo set at times by the Hoops, especially in the first half, and could not find a way back into the match as the Parkhead side ultimately cruised into the quarter-finals.

And on this form Celtic might just fancy their chances in the upcoming Europa League last-32 tie against struggling Italian outfit Inter Milan. They will be boosted for those matches by new signings from Dundee United, Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven, who were cup-tied against the Dark Blues on Saturday. Manager Ronny Deila made only one change, bringing in wideman James Forrest for Anthony Stokes, who started on the bench.

Haste ye back.
