Liverpool:

Long-range shots from Alan Thompson and John Hartson fired Celtic to a 2-0 victory at Liverpool and into the semifinal of the UEFA Cup on Thursday. Thompson drove home a free kick in the final minute of the first half and Hartson powered in a 25-yard shot eight minutes from the end as the Scottish champion overcame the English runner up. The two teams tied 1-1 at Celtic Park last week. Celtic's appearance in the semifinal means that Scottish football could be headed for its first success since Aberdeen's Cup Winners Cup triumph 20 years ago, while Liverpool, UEFA Cup winner in 2001, laments a near miss.
