"We were not worthy of getting anything from the game". We fancied it today.

It's a huge credit to them and the focus this week has been very good, it was comprehensive.

Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, praised the big-game bottle of his side after the crushing victory. How they toyed with Rangers in the course of this latest evisceration.

An unprecedented double Treble is now within reach, with Rodgers on the verge of a feat which eluded even Jock Stein and Martin O'Neill.

Interim Gers boss Graeme Murty went into today's match at Hampden knowing his team needed to win to keep alive their faint hopes of bringing home some silverware this season, and it represented the biggest chance he had to show he could be the club's manager on a full-time basis.

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.

He said: "I'm not going to talk about my role".

Now this one is over, there are a few games still left in the league, but the possibility is there.

'We are in the final now and that won't be an easy game when you look at Motherwell, that's two cups finals we'll be playing them in this season.

The Colombian striker then missed a great chance, hitting the ball straight at Gordon, after Celtic defender Mikael Lustig's sliced clearance had come off his own crossbar.

'We are in a really good position there, but have five tough games to finish. We've played well and won, we had a good edge and good composure.

Tom Rogic swept the Hoops into the lead in the 22nd minute and fellow midfielder Callum McGregor made it 2-0 with a drive in the 38th minute of a startlingly one-sided encounter. It isn't just Celtic we have got to play. "The sending off changed the nature of what we wanted to do second half".

'You always have to deal with the tactics of the opponent. "I don't quite see where Rangers are going".

Rangers just want a victory to get one over their rivals, god knows they haven't had a whole lot to brag about in recent years. That's football management, it wasn't that long ago everyone was talking about what a job he'd done.
