Clockwatch: Celtic 3-0 Kilmarnock

Minute-by-minute action from Celtic's triumph over Kilmarnock in the CIS Insurance Cup final at Hampden Park.

Full-time: Celtic win the cup in emphatic fashion thanks to a fabulous hat-trick from Swedish striker Henrik Larsson.

Chris Sutton's controversial second-half sending-off is the only dark moment for Martin O'Neill's side.

89: Kilmarnock force two corners in a row as they desperately fight for a goal, but Celtic comfortably clear.

87: Kilmarnock's Hay is booked for a crude tackle on Lambert.

81: Larsson gets his hat-trick and puts the game past Kilmarnock. He breaks clear from the halfway line, gets past keeper Marshall by brilliantly dragging his foot over the ball, and then passes into an unguarded net. Celtic 3-0 Kilmarnock.

74: Moravcik plays a ball over the top to Larsson, whose shot from 10 yards is deflected by Innes and flies over the head of the hapless Marshall. Celtic 2-0 Kilmarnock.

71: Larsson is again brought down by his marker Dindeleux, who has already been booked. Crainey's free-kick is then blocked by the Kilmarnock wall.

67: Ramon Vega's "goal" from a Moravcik cross is disallowed for offside. Kilmarnock are failing to make their extra man count.

60: Celtic are down to 10 men after Chris Sutton is controversially shown the red card for a challenge on Holt.

56: McLaren hits the free-kick marginally wide from 30 yards out.

55: Dargo breaks from his own half and is brought down by Celtic captain Paul Lambert, who is shown the yellow card.

51: Andy McLaren comes on for the injured Cocard for Kilmarnock.

48: Sutton heads down Moravcik's resulting corner and Larsson scores with an athletic volley from the edge of the six-yard box. Celtic 1-0 Kilmarnock.

47: Healy is played through by Sutton, but Marshall closes him down well and brilliantly saves his powerful shot.

Half-time: Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock. The end of a tight and tetchy first-half in which Celtic have been the better side but failed to score.

45: Healy toe-ends a shot over the crossbar from the edge of the area.

40: Celtic's Colin Healy is brought down clumsily by McGowne, who is booked. Crainey hits the resultant free-kick narrowly wide of the post.

38: Reilly comes on in place of the injured Ian Durrant for Kilmarnock. Moments earlier, his team-mate Dargo is booked for a foul.

35: Larsson goes down in the area under a challenge from Garry Hay. Referee Hugh Dallas waves play on.

33: Celtic play a vicious swinging free-kick into the area and Marshall fails to claim, but has his defence to thank for clearing the ball. Celtic are starting to dominate.

32: Moravcik sells a dummy to go between two Kilmarnock defenders and into the area. Kilmarnock desperately clear the ball.

27: Chris Sutton plays Larsson clean through on goal, but the Swedish striker is controversially ruled offside.

26: Moravcik fires straight at Marshall from 20 yards out following good work by Crainey and Larsson.

25: Larsson receives attention from Celtic's physio after being wrestled to the ground by Innes.

18: Marshall gets down well to save a curling 30-yard free-kick from Moravcik. It's the first shot on goal of the game.

16: Kilmarnock play a quick free-kick, putting Christophe Cocard through in the area. The Frenchman's shot is blocked, but he's ruled offside in any case.

12: Young substitute Stephen Crainey comes on in place of Bobby Petta.

9: Petta goes down in agony on touchline. It looks like the groin injury that threatened to keep him out of the game has flared up again.

7: Kilmarnock's Freddie Dindeleux becomes the first player to be booked when he fouls Larsson on the right wing.

5: Moravcik sends a threatening cross into the area from the right wing, but Kilmarnock keeper Gordon Marshall catches confidently to thwart the lurking Henrik Larsson.

1 minute: Celtic win the first corner of the game. Lubo Moravcik takes it and Gus MacPherson puts the ball out for Kilmarnock.

1500 GMT: Celtic kick-off at Hampden.

Team news: Chris Sutton and Bobby Petta return from injury for Celtic. Youngster Colin Healy comes into the team at wing-back in place of cup-tied Didier Agathe.

Ian Durrant and Craig Dargo come through late fitness tests to line up for Kilmarnock.


Celtic: Gould, Lambert, Petta, Lennon, Valgaeren, Healy, Larsson, Moravcik, Sutton, Mjallby, Vega. Subs: Boyd, Johnson, Smith, Crainey, Kharine.

Kilmarnock: Marshall, MacPherson, McGowne, Cocard, Holt, Durrant, Mahood, Dindeleux, Dargo, Innes, Hay. Subs: Reilly, McCoist, McLaren, Canero, Meldrum.

Referee: H Dallas (Scotland).
