Kris Commons hits a hat-trick as Celtic book their place in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup with a 7-0 victory over Hearts at Tynecastle.

Kris Commons scored a hat-trick as Celtic stormed into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup by thumping Hearts 7-0 at Tynecastle.

The 30-year-old fired the Bhoys into a 2-0 lead after just 20 minutes with a couple of tidy finishes, before midfielder Scott Brown trebled the advantage shortly after the half-hour mark.

Neil Lennon's men looked poised to carry a three-goal advantage into the interval, only for Joe Ledley and Mikael Lustig to net one apiece in quick succession to secure a 5-0 half-time lead for the Scottish giants.

The onslaught continued after the break, as Commons secured the match ball on the hour mark, before Brown staked a claim to share the plaudits by bagging his brace 15 minutes later.

The hosts seldom threatened Celtic's rearguard and the visitors booked their place in the next round in emphatic fashion.
