Former Rangers striker Lafferty watched Celtic on Sunday.

Ex-Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty has taken to his personal Twitter account to react to Celtic’s win over East Kilbride on Sunday afternoon.

The Bhoys won 2-0 away from home, a result which Lafferty has admitted was fair, to book their place in the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup.

Leigh Griffiths netted in the first half, before Colin Kazim-Richards scored early in the second half to secure the victory against a spirited East Kilbride side.

Captain Barry Russell was exceptional in marshalling the backline, and goalkeeper Matt McGinley proved he has the talent to succeed much higher up the Scottish football pyramid.

It was a victory that Celtic were expected to secure, and anything other than progression to the next round would have been shocking for the Bhoys.

Pressure is already on Ronny Deila’s head for his struggles this season, and thankfully for the Norwegian boss, he will have eased such pressure with the victory.

Being a former Rangers star, Lafferty would have wanted to see Celtic fall out of the cup against such a lowly team, but unfortunately for the ex-Gers forward, he has seen Celtic progress whilst Rangers are being forced to endure a replay against Kilmarnock before their passage to the quarter finals is secured.
