Trevor Sinclair reacts as Celtic break record

Celtic fans are seen ahead of the UEFA Europa League Group B match between Celtic and RB Salzburg at Celtic Park on December 13, 2018 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

Celtic broke another record under Brendan Rodgers today.

Manager of Celtic Brendan Rodgers looks on during the Betfred Cup Semi-Final at Hampden Park on October 21, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Celtic are used to making history under Brendan Rodgers, but another record fell on Sunday.

The Hoops smashed St Johnstone 5-0 at Parkhead to move into the next round of the Scottish Cup.

In doing so, Rodgers's side, who have won seven domestic trophies under the Northern Irishman since 2016, recorded their 24th successive cup win.

The last side to beat Celtic in a domestic cup competition were Rangers - then a Championship team - nearly three years ago.

 

And here's how Trevor Sinclair reacted to the record:

Scott Sinclair opened the scoring after three minutes, before Scott Brown doubled the Bhoys' advantage with a long-range stunner.

James Forrest and Sinclair added further goals within nine minutes of the restart, before the latter completed his hat-trick toward the end.

Hearts and Aberdeen brushed aside lower-league opposition today to join Celtic in the next round, though Rangers will have to negotiate a replay with Kilmarnock before joining their Premiership rivals, after last night's 0-0 draw.
