Ex-Rangers Captain Lee McCulloch Hammers Team for 'Unacceptable' Display v Celtic

Celtic took a huge step towards securing back-to-back trebles as they ruthlessly swept Rangers aside to reach the Scottish Cup final.

Celtic are now one win away from two flawless seasons where they completed the treble of the league, League Cup and Scottish Cup.

Five minutes after the break Gers defender Ross McCrorie was given a straight red card by referee Bobby Madden for denying Moussa Dembele an obvious goalscoring opportunity, and from the resultant penalty the French striker scored "Panenka" style for his seventh goal in nine Old Firm games.

Brendan Rodgers's side will complete an unprecedented double treble if they can overcome Motherwell when they return to Hampden on Saturday, May 19. But this season we've had a number of really good performances. I'm always one where the mantra is the next game.

'We just knew as soon as we turned up that we were going to win, ' said Brown afterwards.

And Celtic boss Rodgers, who worked at Stamford Bridge as a coach during Jose Mourinho's first spell in charge, is also very much at the forefront of Chelsea's thinking.

"However, we go to Hampden with a team that have not only won there but played very well".

In the second half we got the penalty and McCrorie got send off, and I still felt at times we could have been cleaner in our passing and could have one or two more goals with a final pass, but you can't ask anymore, coming into a game here with so much on it, to come out winning 4-0 and playing so well, it was a great result for us.

"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".

"There's lots of things to look at". We were just passive. We didn't put them under enough pressure and allowed them to play through us too easily.

"But we want to keep writing our own history and that means being really focused on the next game".
