Celtic moved in front after just three minutes through Joe Todd but Conor Glenholmes levelled for Swifts soon after.

The Hoops held the advantage at the break thanks to further goals from Paul Brown and Kevin Hughes.

Then, with 12 minutes left, a great solo run and finished from Declan Monaghan seemed to have wrapped the points up for Celtic.

But, to their credit, Swifts hit back with two quick fire goals from Terry Cavanagh and a Gavin Johnston spot-kick to reduce the arrears.

However, Monaghan was to have the final say and wrap up the points after great link up with Maurice Curtis on the left touchline to produce a strong run and finish to complete the scoring.
