Celtic run through Rangers to keep treble dream alive and kicking

And while both Celtic and Rangers sides of the past have won nine titles in a row and won domestic trebles, victory for the Hoops over their old rivals will take them to within a win of a second successive clean sweep which has yet to be done in Scottish football. "That's what we aim to do in every game and we did that easily today".

Thousands of Rangers fans streamed out of Hampden before the final whistle prompting a disconsolate Murty to say: 'I would apologise to them for the game.

Brendan Rodgers insists Celtic are focused on the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers as they look to rewrite history. "I will speak to him in the week, we will have a chat and move forward from there".

"There should be disappointment and frustration and anger there", Murty said.

"There was anger, frustration, all the sorts of emotion you would expect from a changing room that has just gone through that", he said. "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". As did midfielder Olivier Ntcham in the 78th minute, by which time thousands of Gers fans had left the ground.

"We wanted to get to the final but there's always pressure".
