Despite Aberdeen's spirited fightback, it was Matt O'Riley's composed finish in extra time that restored Celtic's lead before MacDonald's late heroics forced the game to penalties. In the end, it was Celtic who held their nerve in the shootout, with Hart's heroics ensuring their progression to the final.
