Celtic round off tough week with cup victory
CELTIC ended an unusually difficult week with a 3-1 League Cup last-16 win over Partick Thistle at the Energy Check stadium at Firhill.
Striker Leigh Griffiths’ goal after 17 minutes gave the dominant visitors the interval lead but that was cancelled out in the 72nd minute by Jags attacker Andrea Mbuyi-Mutombo.
However, quickfire goals from substitute Moussa Dembele and Tom Rogic got the treble winners back to winning ways. Brendan Rodgers’ side lost 1-0 at Hearts last Sunday before being dumped out of the Champions League qualifiers on Tuesday with a 3-2 aggregate defeat by AEK Athens.
