Relief for manager Neil Lennon after Celtic earned themselves a slender 1-0 victory at second division Arbroath in their Scottish Cup fourth round replay.

"It was uncomfortable at times, but that's cup football" - Neil Lennon
Defender Adam Matthews scored the only goal in the first-half to leave the visitors contemplating a trip to first division Raith Rovers in the next round.

"It was a real test of character and I'm delighted with the attitude of the players," Lennon later admitted to BBC Scotland. "It was uncomfortable at times, but that's cup football.

"We're into the next round and it's another competition to look forward to in the New Year," he added. "Overall, I'm pleased to get the job done."

Aberdeen 0 Celtic 2

Both teams had a player sent-off as Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic accounted for third-placed Aberdeen 2-0 at Pittodrie.

Moussa Dembele headed in at the far post from James Forrest's cross to earn them an interval advantage.

But defender Mikael Lustig picked up a second yellow card and was dismissed with fourteen minutes remaining.

However, fellow full-back Kieran Tierney still added a second goal before home substitute Sam Cosgrove was sent-off for a bad late challenge
