New Celtic signings Sviatchenko and Kazim-Richards react on Twitter after cup victory

Celtic beat East Kilbride 2-0 in the Scottish Cup this afternoon.

Celtic came through their Scottish Cup tie at East Kilbride unscathed, as they picked up a 2-0 win against the non-league outfit.

The Bhoys went into the game under major pressure after defeats to Ross County and Aberdeen over the last week, with fans turning on manager Ronny Deila.

However, they managed to see off semi-pro side East Kilbride, as strikers Leigh Griffiths and Colin Kazim-Richards found the net to seal their passage into the next round.

The game saw new striker Kazim-Richards start for the first time since signing from Dutch side Feyenoord on Monday, and he opened his account for the club with a goal in the second half.

The Turkish international striker took to Twitter after the game to pass on a message to Celtic fans, stating that games against lower league opposition are always difficult, but he was glad with the win and his first goal for the Bhoys.

Another new signing from the January transfer window, Danish international defender Erik Sviatchenko, also took to Twitter, stating the he would've liked to have claimed a bigger victory, but the 2-0 win 'felt nice', and celebrated the clean sheet too.
