Tom Rogic’s Celtic are into the final of Scotland’s League Cup (Betfred Cup) after a 4-2 win over Hibernian in a thrilling semi-final on Saturday night (AEDT).
After playing in the UEFA Champions League against Bayern Munich in midweek, Rogic was left on the bench by manager Brendon Rodgers before being introduced late in the second half.
But the Caltex Socceroos playmaker still had time to set up Celtic’s match-sealing goal right on the stroke of full-time.
With Hibs clawing their way back to 3-2, Rogic eased Celtic’s nerve with sensational pass with the outside of his left foot to release Moussa Dembele to score and make the result safe.
Earlier Mikael Lustig scored a brace to have the Hoops’ leading 2-0 at the break before Hibs threatened a comeback.
But Dembele’s two second-half goals and Rogic’s touch of class late on ensured Celtic would progress to yet another League Cup final.
Rodgers' men will face the winner from Sunday's clash between Rangers and Motherwell in the decider.
