Celtic responded to back-to-back defeats by easily beating second-tier Raith Rovers to set up a Scottish League Cup

semi-final with holders St Johnstone in November.

The Championship visitors started well and frustrated the hosts for over 25 minutes, but Jota’s first Celtic goal opened the scoring and

Liel Abada nodded in a second before the break.

David Turnbull guided in a third two minutes after the interval before Raith played out the final half hour with 10 men after Dario Zanatta’s dismissal.

The victory  coming after away losses against Real Betis and Livingston means Ange Postecoglou will guide a side out at Hampden for the first time on

the weekend of 20 and 21 November.

Raith are still without a win over Celtic in 15 attempts since their League Cup final win in 1994.

However, John McGlynn’s defence would be breached on 26 minutes when James McCarthy’s inch-perfect pass was controlled by Jota,

who lifted a tidy finish over Jamie MacDonald.
