Celtic manager Neil Lennon hailed an improved performance as the SPL champions eased through to the Scottish Cup quarter-finals with a solid 3-0 victory at Raith Rovers.

"We're in the next round and I hope we get St Mirren" - Neil Lennon

"We're in the next round and I hope we get St Mirren," he added. "I'm looking forward to it if we do."
