A review of Sunday's action in the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round.

  • Kris Commons netted a hat-trick as Celtic beat Hearts 7-0.
  • Andrew Considine scores Aberdeen's winner against Partick. 

Celtic romped through to the William Hill Scottish Cup fifth round with a 7-0 win over Hearts at Tynecastle, handing the Gorgie side their biggest defeat in 40 years.

The cup holders were knocked out of Europe with a 3-0 Champions League defeat to AC Milan at Parkhead on Tuesday night and they took their frustrations out on the Jambos to lead 5-0 at half-time with a Kris Commons brace and goals from skipper Scott Brown, Joe Ledley and Mikael Lustig.

A one-sided contest continued after the break as Commons completed his hat-trick in the 58th minute from the spot with Brown grabbing his second - and the Hoops' seventh - in the 74th minute with a volley from the edge of the box.

In Sunday's other match, Andrew Considine headed another crucial cup goal as Aberdeen continued their winning record against Partick Thistle with a 1-0 victory.

The defender scored a late opener against Motherwell in October to send his team into the League Cup semi-finals and his early goal at Firhill proved enough to win this fourth-round clash.
