Celtic into Scottish Cup final, on course for another treble

Brendan Rodgers praised a "comprehensive" performance from Celtic as they eased past Rangers with a 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final win on Sunday. I know it's scant consolation right now but we were not worthy of getting anything from the game today'.

Thousands of Rangers fans streamed out of Hampden before the final whistle prompting a disconsolate Murty to say: 'I would apologise to them for the game.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday, back in the starting line-up, vented his frustration at being removed five minutes before the interval, replaced by Josh Windass.

Celtic are by far and away the best team in Scotland, they have been for the last eight or nine years now, you probably wouldn't be far off the mark if you said that the disappointment of losing far outweighs the joy of winning for them.

"Everyone will tell you it's one game at a time but we are well aware now that there is a possibility for that and we are going to give it everything we have between now and the end of the season to get that".

"Craig [Gordon] made a couple of good saves but we should be scoring at least one".

"I wouldn't have been happy", Murty said.

Their reward will be a return to Hampden, for the Scottish Cup final against Motherwell in late May.

"Andy's frustrated but I'll see him in the week and have a chat and take things from there". We wanted to get a different shape to the team, and Josh fitted that bill.

"There should be frustration and anger, it is just about turning that into positives and energy to power you through to the end of the season, rather than allow it to be disruptive".

"The players need to respond - not just against Celtic".

With 12 minutes left to play, Rangers substitute Jason Holt felled Patrick Roberts in the box and Ntcham drilled the ensuing spot-kick into the bottom-left corner to put the gloss on a result that never looked in doubt from the moment Celtic took the lead.

"We wanted to get to the final but there's always pressure".
