Mikael Lustig taunts Rangers players after Celtic’s ‘easy’ stroll to Scottish Cup Final

Mikael Lustig twisted the knife in to Rangers by claiming the Ibrox squad only cheered the Scottish Cup draw because they knew they’d end up with an extra week off at the end of the season. The Light Blues celebrated after beating Falkirk in the quarter-finals and landing Celtic in the last four. But the big Swede insisted Celts had the last laugh as Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham put the boot in to sorry Rangers to set up a showdown with Motherwell in the Final.

Lustig insisted the thumping win underlined Celtic’s superiority over their rivals - and he claimed yesterday’s Hampden stroll was EASY. The defender said: “Obviously there was a lot of talk. But we stay calm, we’re humble and we do our talking on the pitch and we’ve won again.

“I didn’t really react to be honest. But they probably knew they were going to get some extra days off and get an extra holiday - that’s probably why they were cheering.” Celtic made it 10 Old Firm games in a row unbeaten and Lustig insisted the Scottish Cup slaughter was a canter for Celts. He said: “Rangers couldn’t find a way to do something against us.

“I think it must be damaging for them. “From the start we showed we wanted to play football. “They didn’t press us, they didn’t make it hard for us. It maybe sounds a bit cheeky but it felt quite easy.” Hoops skipper Scott Brown also couldn’t resist taunting Gers over their cup cheers. The midfielder bossed the Light Blues at Hampden and insisted Celts had shut up their fierce rivals.

Brown said: “We just knew as soon as we turned up that we were going to win. “They can can cheer as much as they want, I don’t think they’ll be cheering tonight. “We knew, from start to finish, that we were going to dominate this game. We fancied it today. “We know that when we turn up and play our game on a good pitch that nobody can deal with us.”

Brendan Rodgers couldn’t conceal his delight as his side home in on more unprecendented success. The manager said: “You can’t ask any more going into a game like this here, with so much on it. To come out winning 4-0 is a great result for us. “When big games come they (the Celtic players) turn up, it’s a huge credit to them. It was comprehensive.” Read More........
