    CELTIC… 4
    (Diver 17, Aitchison 19, Savoury 27, McInroy 58)

    QUEEN OF THE SOUTH… 0

    CELTIC’S Reserve side recorded an impressive 4-0 victory over Queen of the South at Lennoxtown today (Monday) in a game they dominated from first minute until last.

    The Hoops were on the attack from the start, and Ciaran Diver had the first chance after just five minutes, but his shot was blocked.

    Just two minutes later, in what would prove to be a rare foray forward for the visitors, Queen of the South forced Conor Hazard in the Celtic goal into a good stop to prevent them taking the lead.

    On 17 minutes, Celtic got the breakthrough they deserved. Good interplay between Lewis Bell and Grant Savoury saw the ball delivered into the box, and Diver was there to head home.

    Just two minutes later, it was 2-0, and this time it was Jack Aitchison who picked up the ball outside the area, beat his man and then fired a low shot into the net.

    Diver came close to doubling his goal tally for the afternoon, but his shot crashed off the woodwork, and he was denied again just before the break when his header from a Daniel Church cross hit the post.

    Just two minutes after the break, however, Celtic extended their lead through Grant Savoury, with Aitchison the provider. And Savoury came close again just minutes later with a shot that just went over.

    Just before the hour mark, captain Kerr McInroy scored Celtic’s fourth of the afternoon with a thunderous strike, and the Hoops continued to surge forward at every opportunity in search of further goals.

    Queen of the South came close to scoring a consolation goal with 10 minutes to go, but a header from one of their strikers hit the bar, and the Hoops ran out 4-0 winners.

    CELTIC: Hazard, Bell, Welsh, Duffy, Church, Coffey, McInroy, Aitchison, Savoury, Robertson, Diver.
    Subs: Mullen, Patterson, Kennedy, McBride, McLaughlin
