Celtic managed to make it into the Scottish Cup final although they chose the hardest way possible. It had looked like the Hoops had wrapped the game up not once but twice, but ended up conceding equalisers in the 90th and then the 119th minute to take the match into penalties. But ultimately, Brendan Rodgers' side had enough in the tank to get past the finish line.

The three players on the scoresheet for Celtic on the day were Nicolas Kuhn, James Forrest and Matt O'Riley. The result means that their double hopes are still alive and well.

One player who neither scored nor assisted on the day was Luis Palma. Unfortunately, that has been the case for him far too often in recent times. He did well to score his penalty though.

Palma had made a brilliant start to life at Celtic Park and looked like someone who had the tools to fill the boots of Jota. But unfortunately, the numbers have dried up for the Honduran international in recent months. Since the turn of the year, he has managed to score just once in the league and provided zero assists.

It looks like Palma recognises that he has not been up to the mark lately as well. He wrote on Instagram:

"In my career I have had many high and lows but I have always been able to get up and I’m aware that I’m not at the level that I would like due many circumstances but I’m working day by day to reach that level that I know I can reach."

Palma has certainly shown that he has the ability to perform at a very high level. He has delivered for Celtic not just in the Premiership but in the Champions League as well.

Unfortunately, we have not seen much of that in recent times. But hopefully, that version of Palma will be back very soon. There are still many important games to go for the Hoops this season and let's see if the Honduran winger is able to make a difference in them.
