Socceroos Watch: Tom Rogic strikes in Scottish Cup semi-final

BRENDAN RODGERS hailed his players after Celtic's 4-0 hammering of Rangers in this afternoon's Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden.

On the basis of their vigorous display in their semi-final triumph over Aberdeen, Motherwell are likely to offer more resistance on May 19 than a Rangers team which manager Graeme Murty described as "passive".

Goals from Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor gave the Hoops a comfortable and commanding interval lead at Hampden.

Murty's men were swept aside as they fell 2-0 down by half-time before Ross McCrorie's red card five minutes after the interval all but ended their hopes.

Asked what he thought the defeat meant for his own position, he said: "I'm not going to talk about my role".

Murty said: "This is the worst I've felt in my career, without a doubt". They are a very honest team, they work very hard but we know that when we turn up and play, it gives us a great chance. We knew as soon as we got the ball down on a half-decent pitch, with the speed we move the ball, Rangers didn't know how to adapt and deal with it.

Probed about Halliday's reaction to his substitution, Murty said: "I wouldn't have been happy".

"We have to put a performance worthy of their support". It isn't just Celtic we have got to play. But when it comes to one against one, you have to actually get up closer to your opponent than we did in the first period. "But we didn't do enough for them to want to stay in the stadium today".

'It seems to be the case at times that we've had really good opportunities to claw something back from the game and we haven't managed to do it.

"In the first-half, we were very dominant and in control, so I'm very pleased".

Well, maybe so, and it still generates its energy and noise, but Celtic have reduced it to a playful game of cat-and-mouse.

"Andy's frustrated, but I'll see him in the week and have a chat and take things from there". There are big games ahead of us and we have to get a response between now and the end of the season of we want to finish as we should.
