ReviewCeltic's sublime performance was in stark contrast to the ugly crowd scenes and public disorder.
Celtic scored from kick off when Hood passed to Lennox to run down the left and his cross was side footed home by Wallace.
Waterford were lively in the opening stages and Matthews was a threat and he claimed a penalty after a collision with Willimas but no award was given.
Macari scored the goal of the game with a brilliant back heel from a head corner. Murdoch scored the third with a trade mark thundering shot and after this crowd trouble broke out. Murdoch made it 4-0 at half time.
During the interval the referee pleaded for order as the Gardia cleared the field of people and missiles. Despite the trouble not one arrest was made.
In the second half Celtic made the second leg a formality with three more goals as Stein pushed on his subs Chalmers and Davidson.
