Paolo KOs three Cad trick.

Cocky Paolo di Canio robbed Jorge Cadete of a Scottish Cup hat- trick then shrugged: "I had to do it."

The Italian pin-up slammed home an 81st minute penalty to round off a 5- 0 third round rout of Clydebank at Firhill yesterday.

Celts fans jokingly JEERED him as he took the ball from his Portuguese pal who had won the spot-kick after earlier scoring twice.

But di Canio said: "It was important for me to take the penalty to boost my confidence. I haven't played for two weeks now and I really wanted a goal. It gives me a lift for Wednesday's game against Dunfermline.

"It was a normal conversation between me and Jorge - I just told him to give me the ball."

Goals from Malky Mackay and Pierre van

Hooijdonk, after Cadete got a double inside the first nine minutes, set Celts up for a tie with Aberdeen or Hibs.

And Cadete insisted he didn't give a damn about missing out on a treble.

He said: "The last time we won a penalty Paolo scored it and so he was the man to take this one."

Cadete opened his account after 65 seconds to knock a second off his fastest goal.

He has now taken his tally to 30 goals in 32 games since signing for Celts.

Delighted boss Tommy Burns said: "It's important to start these games right and Jorge's goal did that for us. But our special player today was Brian McLaughlin."

Clydebank boss Brian Wright groaned: "Well, what can you do? We were a goal down before touching the ball. It's a lesson for our lads - their movement off the ball was exceptional."
