Moussa Dembele got a brace as Celtic cruised to a 3-0 victory over Greenock Morton in Saturday’s FA Cup quarterfinal outing.

The forward who was on target against Aberdeen last weekend started from where he stopped with another stunning display over Jim Duffy’s side.

After the first-half ended goalless, the former Fulham player eventually broke the deadlock in the 62nd minute when he powered home a header from Tom Rogic’s cross.

And the French-born Malian completed his brace nine minutes later from the penalty spot after he was fouled in the area by Michael Doyle.
