Celtic had no cup shock last night after beating Championship side Raith Rovers 2-0 at Paradise.
Goals from the ever reliable Kris Commons and Stefan Johansen put Celtic through to the fourth-round of the League Cup.
Fellow Premier League sides Aberdeen and Motherwell both went out tonight to Hibernian and Morton, but there was no such shock for the Premier League champions.
As reported by STV, Ronny Deila admitted that he was worried that they would have a similar fate as hide side held onto a slender 1-0 lead.
I am always a little bit worried. You never know in football and the cup is always like that.*
“When it is 1-0 anything can happen but I think we were in good control and it was good that we got the second goal.*
There were a few nervy moments in the game as Ross Matthews fired a volley over the crossbar from eight yards out that would have levelled the game at that stage.
Raith Rovers never really created any other clear-cut chances but it would only have taken a slight lapse in concentration from Celtic and they would have been level in the game.
Deila noted that playing a team from a division below is tougher because of the expectation to go out and comfortably win.
When you meet a team from a lower division it is always difficult because they gave 110% and sometimes it is easy to get a bit lazy.*
But I think our players worked really hard for 90 minutes. We kept the pressure on all the time and could have scored more. We kept another clean sheet, which is very important.*
The draw for the quarter-finals of the Scottish League Cup will be made in the Media Centre East at Hampden Park on Monday 28th September at 2.30pm, with the quarter-finals scheduled for October 27th and 28th.
