Celtic are through to the Scottish Cup final after recording a convincing 4-0 victory over Rangers at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon.

The side managed by former Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers has already won the Scottish League Cup and is one victory away from clinching the Scottish Premiership for the seventh straight year.

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.

Rangers tried to sit in and frustrate Brendan Rodgers' men at Hampden but that simply played into the Hoops' hands as they grabbed the initiative with first-half goals from Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor. We are in a really good position there, but have five tough games.

"In the second half, we gave them the penalty and sending off which makes their job far, far easier". I'm always one where the mantra is the next game.

I don't think we got close enough to them.

In a dominant first-half display goals from Rogic and McGregor cowed a Rangers side visibly unnerved by their opponents, "It was very good", Rodgers continued.

Asked what he thought the defeat meant for his own position, he said: "I'm not going to talk about my role". We were good defensively and were a threat going forward. I don't get their formation at the start of the game.

"Afterwards here was emotion, anger, disappointment - all the things you wuld expect after a game like that It's about putting all of them into positives to power you through to the end of the season". We were just passive.

"There's lots of things to look at".

There could be difficulties in agreeing a new deal though, as Australian football website The World Game reported in February that the player had turned down a new deal with the Hoops, although this was denied by Rodgers, as reported by Fox Sports Australia. We didn't put them under enough pressure and allowed them to play through us too easily.
