Celtic picked up a big win on Saturday evening as they beat Falkirk 3-0 in the Scottish Cup, coasting to a comfortable victory in the end.

The Bhoys were left frustrated in the first half as they went into the break drawing 0-0, and fans may have been fearing the worst after a shock home cup defeat to Ross County earlier this season.

Celtic did claim the win though, as winger James Forrest opened the scoring before Ryan Christie quickly made it 2-0, effectively killing off the game there and then.

Mohamed Elyounoussi added a third to wrap up the win, leaving John Kennedy with a big win in what could yet be his final game in charge given the strong Eddie Howe rumours.

One player who may have enjoyed this win more than most is Christie, who managed to exert some kind of revenge after being mocked by Falkirk on Twitter.

During the first half, Falkirk’s official account tweeted a joke about Christie, mocking him for shooting from range and missing the target – something Celtic fans have been frustrated with themselves in recent times.

Christie may or may not have heard about the tweet at half time, but he showed his quality by firing a strike from outside of the box low into the corner of the net.

Celtic fans flocked to poke fun back at Falkirk after Christie scored from range, with Falkirk possibly regretting mocking him after all.
