Celtic are on course to win the treble-treble after comfortably beating an out-of-sorts Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

Odsonne Edouard of Celtic scores from the penalty spot during the Scottish Cup semi-final between Aberdeen and Celtic at Hampden Park on April 14, 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland.

John Hartson has stated on Twitter that Celtic strolled to a 3-0 victory over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final on Sunday afternoon as he claimed that the Dons 'lost the plot' in the match.

Derek McIness's side had two men sent off in the match on either side of the half, with the manager himself also sent his marching orders as the Bhoys will now meet Hearts in the final.

The victory also means that Celtic are on course to win the treble-treble as Neil Lennon will be hoping to end the campaign with the Scottish Cup in hand. 

 

Here is former Parkhead favourite Hartson posting a simple message about the game at Hampden on his personal Twitter account:

In the game itself, James Forrest opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time when Aberdeen were down to 10 men after Dominic Ball was given a second booking for a wild challenge on Ryan Christie. 

After the break, Lennon's side continued their dominance with Odsonne Edouard converting from the penalty spot following a foul on Jonny Hayes.

Tom Rogic, who was on the end of a vicious tackle from Lewis Ferguson, made sure that Celtic booked their place in the final. 

Many felt that this was going to be a stern test for Celtic, and in particular Lennon, whose contract runs out in the summer after he replaced Brendan Rodgers in the dugout in February. 

This victory will go a long way in ensuring Lennon stays on the right path in staying in contention for the job next season but he still has a final to deal with.
