Brendan Rodgers delights in 'comprehensive' Celtic win over Rangers

Brendan Rodgers delights in 'comprehensive' Celtic win over Rangers

He had a hand in Rogic's opener and then lured McCrorie into the last-man tug which got the Rangers youngster dismissed.

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos had two chances to grab a goal back, but Craig Gordon denied him each time.

He added: "There is belief in the squad that they can challenge Celtic, but I didn't feel it today, not in the first half".

"I asked them to get into a shape and a structure in order to go and press". When you get to these games, you know what's at stake. "There was a real edge to the players' game and composure". All four goals were easily avoidable just through basic, good defending. "The sending off changed the nature of what we wanted to do second half". I said we had to be clinical in both boxes but we didn't manage that at all. It's a tough day for them today, of course, but we've played well and won the game.

"I wouldn't have been happy if I was taken off". I'm always one where the mantra is the next game.

U.S. airstrikes targeted Syrian chemical weapons infastructure
May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday. Trump said the USA would maintain pressure on Syria until the Assad regime suspends use of chemical weapons.

"Andy is frustrated. But if you deal with people in an emotional state, you get an emotional response".

Brendan Rodgers's side will complete an unprecedented double treble if they can overcome Motherwell when they return to Hampden on Saturday, May 19. His frustration was clear as he got himself embroiled in an angry exchange with a supporter but Murty really should have waited until the half-time interval to make his change. "It is about making sure they turn that into positives and energy to power us through to the end of the season, rather than allowing it to be disruptive". The players themselves obviously felt confident after they beat Ayr 6-1.

'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 Ibrox side rallied in desperation but midfielder Olivier Ntcham scored a fourth from the spot in the 78th minute with Graeme Murty's side fortunate to finish with no further damage. We have to put on a performance worthy of their support.
