Celtic extended their unbeaten run against their bitter rivals with what was an emphatic display in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

"The last five [league games] will really get the players focused and ensure that we're ready", Rodgers said. But I think this season we've had a number of really good performances.

With 12 minutes left to play, Rangers substitute Jason Holt felled Patrick Roberts in the box and Ntcham drilled the ensuing spot-kick into the bottom-left corner to put the gloss on a result that never looked in doubt from the moment Celtic took the lead.

They're all very special in their own way.

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. Knowing what these games are about, and knowing how tense and edgy they can be, always makes them special occasions. They're all great wins and it's a brilliant day for the supporters. "We have a way of playing that we know can win games".
