As their team turned on the style to sweep aside Aberdeen there was only one thing for the Celtic support to do- The Huddle.
A tense build up to the match had followed the 0-0 draw at home to Livingston with plenty of reminders of Neil Lennon’s previous Hampden defeats.
After reading about links to Roberto Martinez and Andre Villas-Boas the morning of the semi-final saw Swansea’s Graham Potter linked with the job that Lennon is currently taking on a caretaker basis.

Celtic’s early storm failed to produce a breakthrough with Jozo Simunovic twice coming close to finding the net.
Aberdeen dug in, conceded possession with the match taking a down turn when Ryan Christie required six minutes of treatment before being taken off the park.
During that stoppage time James Forrest opened the scoring with a brilliant strike, suddenly the Treble Treble became visible.
Second half goals from Odsonne Edouard and Tom Rogic turned the match into a formality as the fans celebrated as they looked forward to another Hampden visit on the biggest day on the Celtic calendar- May 25.
