Rodgers risk pays off handsomely: Three things learned in Celtic win v Rangers


Celtic cruised into the Scottish Cup Final with an emphatic 4-0 win over bitter rivals Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

The Hoops dominated most of the early stages of the game, and Moussa Dembele came close in the first 10 minutes of the game with a shot which came off the post.

The Bhoys eventually took the lead in the 22nd minute, when Tom Rogic scored his third goal of the season against the Ibrox side with a nice finish from inside the box.

The Hoops then extended their lead in the 38th minute, when Callum McGregor took advantage of some terrible Russell Martin defending with an excellent goal, as he placed the ball into the corner of the net.

The Bhoys then killed the game off in the 52nd minute, when Ross McCrorie pulled Moussa Dembele down in the box, and after the Gers man was sent-off Dembele chipped the ball home.
