Celtic run through Rangers to keep treble dream alive and kicking

"We were just passive".

"They can cheer as much as they want, I don't think they'll be cheering tonight".

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

Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, praised the big-game bottle of his side after the crushing victory.

"The first half was a total embarrassment for Rangers, they were so far off the pace".

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.

Ross McCrorie was then sent off shortly after half-time and Moussa Dembele scored the resulting penalty before Olivier Ntcham wrapped up the win with another spot-kick. If you deal with people in an emotional state, you get an emotional response. I said we had to be clinical in both boxes but we didn't manage that at all.

It hasn't been all ideal for them however, Celtic's Champions League campaign was disastrous as they recorded just one win in six games and subsequently went on to compete in the Europa League where they lost to Red Bull Leipzig.

'That's a totally different game again with their physicality and they are a very honest team that work very hard. It was another display of the Australian's ability to turn on the magic on the big occasion as he sold McCrorie a dummy before twisting the other way to stroke home.

'We are in a really good position there, but have five tough games to finish.

"We like coming here, it's a good pitch for us".

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. "The sending off changed the nature of what we wanted to do second half".

"In the first-half, we were very dominant and in control, so I'm very pleased".

"Andy's frustrated but I'll see him in the week and have a chat and take things from there".

'It's easy to criticise a manager afterwards.

"We have played particularly well here at Hampden, be it semi-finals or finals", Gordon said. That's football management, it wasn't that long ago everyone was talking about what a job he'd done.

"The players need to respond for themselves". They felt this was maybe going to be the chance for them.
