Celtic out of Scottish Cup

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Peter Pawlett scored the winner as Abderdeen rallied past defending champion Celtic 2-1 to reach the quarterfinals of the Scottish Cup.

Anthony Stokes put the hosts ahead after nine minutes but Celtic failed to build on the momentum as Russell Anderson leveled with an acrobatic finish in the 38th minute. Pawlett then struck five minutes after the interval to end Celtic's 15-match domestic winning run.
