Commons inspires Bhoys rout Commons fires Bhoys

Kris Commons was in inspirational form as Celtic trounced St Johnstone in their Scottish League Cup quarter-final clash at Parkhead.

The Hoops midfielder began the demolition when his shot was deflected into his own net by St Johnstone midfielder Liam Craig in the 28th minute and four minutes later Commons grabbed number two with another drive before setting up Gary Hooper for the third before the break.

The Scotland international scored from the spot 10 minutes into the second half to begin an argument of whether or not that was his hat-trick before substitute Charlie Mulgrew, on at the interval for Hooper, completed a night of misery for the hapless McDiarmid Park men when he made it 5-0.
