Celtic skipper Scott Brown had a dig at former Rangers striker Filip Sebo after thundering in a 30-yard drive in the 5-0 William Hill Scottish Cup last-16 win over St Johnstone.

Winger Scott Sinclair opened the scoring from a tight angle in the third minute before midfielder Brown sent a right-footed shot high past the flailing arm of Saints goalkeeper Zander Clark for his first goal in two years.

Sinclair completed his hat-trick and James Forrest also got on the scoresheet as the holders booked their place in the quarter-finals.

Brown made reference to Gers flop Sebo, the former Slovakia striker who scored only two goals for the Light Blues between 2006 and 2007 and who is occasionally mocked by the Parkhead fans, when told that the crowd had urged him to shoot.

He said: ‘I don’t think they (crowd) actually want me to shoot most of the time.

‘I usually get the shout of ‘Sebo’ two seconds after I shoot.

‘It’s one of those that I’ll probably hit one time out of a hundred that sweet and it goes in the top corner. The main thing though was getting into the next round, it was a good, proper performance.’
