Celtic star Anthony Stokes reacts on Twitter to Hibernian’s Scottish Cup exit

Hibernian defeated Falkirk in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup yesterday, while Celtic will take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle today.

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Hibernian’s failure to reach the final of the Scottish Cup this season.

Hibernian, who are aiming to finish second in the Scottish Championship this season, suffered a 1-0 defeat to Falkirk at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Saturday.

Craig Sibbald’s headed effort in the 75th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, Hibernian had 55% of the possession, took 13 shots of which three were on target, and earned five corners.

Meanwhile, Falkirk had the ball 45% of the time, took only four shots of which two were on target, and earned three corners.

Celtic star Stokes was following the match, and he felt that his former club Hibernian were unlucky not to progress to the final at the expense of Falkirk.

The former Sunderland striker also expressed his disappointment at missing out on the Bhoys' Scottish Cup semi-final tie against Inverness Caledonian Thistle today due to suspended.

However, Stokes is confident that Celtic will defeat their opponents and reach the final.
