Celtic tops Rangers 2-0, into Scottish Cup final vs Aberdeen

The rampant Hoops have taken another step towards wrapping up a domestic clean sweep with Sunday's 2-0 win over Rangers in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers reacts to his side's win over bitter rivals Rangers. 'We're at home, we'll go out and give everything we've got.

But he let caretaker boss Graeme Murty take charge of the team one last time as he made a decision to assess his new squad from the Parkhead directors box.

McGregor would not reveal the exact amount of times he had watched a re-run of the goal, but admitted it has been a "fair few".

But the writing was on the wall for Gers from kick-off.

Quickly, Celtic took hold of things and their greater intensity, accuracy and quality paid off with the opener. McGregor, however, failed to beat Foderingham.

Foderingham tipped a smart Griffiths snapshot over the post a couple of minutes later as the one-way traffic continued and just past the hour Man City's on-loan midfielder Roberts also had a decent effort saved by the tired Rangers custodian. Not just in a cup final or here today.

And it was not much longer before they capitalised on their early dominance. We gave our opponents too much respect and we dropped off too much.

Celtic totally controlled the opening half, but were dealt a blow when Dembele pulled up using a hamstring injury and was replaced by Leigh Griffiths.

From the second free-kick, Griffiths forced Foderingham to dive at full stretch to keep out his strike.

Opposition parties criticized the electoral board's decision to allow unstamped ballots to be counted. The board ruled against applications to annul the referendum Wednesday.

Then, with 10 minutes left, he had another opportunity, a point-blank shot kicked away by Gordon.

Andy Halliday and Joe Garner were sacrificed at the break as the Portuguese coach tried to inject some life into his line-up by throwing on Barrie McKay and Joe Dodoo.

Moussa Dembele had netted five times against Rangers already this season and was gifted a free header at goal inside two minutes but was unable to find the target from Scott Sinclair's floated corner.

Rangers were on the ropes now with Griffiths and Roberts both testing the reflexes of the badly exposed and overworked Foderingham.

"Their keeper got a hand to my penalty but it was never in doubt". You don't need to magnify a Celtic v Rangers game.

The Hoops nearly grabbed a third in the final minute with substitute Tom Rogic striking the post from distance but it mattered not as his side saw out the victory.

Goalkeeper Craig Gordon twice denied Kenny Miller in Rangers' best attacks.

"He's helped get my confidence back".

Handed the defensive responsibilities in place of Erik Sviatchenko, Simunovic strolled through the first-half with relative ease.

PATRICK ROBERTS - The in-form winger was chosen ahead of James Forrest and justified his selection.
