Now Get Title Won, Brendan Rodgers Tell Celtic After Rangers Hammered

"As for the game itself, what you do have to say is that if Celtic go out and play to their full potential, then they should walk off the pitch having put themselves into the Scottish Cup Final and within touching distance of a back-to-back treble".

After defeating a meek Rangers side 4-0 at Hampden, Celtic face Motherwell in the Scottish Cup final on 19 May.

Hartson, who won the league title in Scotland with Celtic three times, may not be popular among the Rangers fans, but the Ibrox faithful will agree with the 43-year-old former Wales global striker's comments.

The Hoops are one win away from clinching their seventh successive Ladbrokes Premiership title and that could come at Hibernian in the first post-split fixture.

"The history is enormous at this club and what we did past year was historic", said the Parkhead boss.

"They are always tough games".

"From the first goal we had really good control throughout the game".

Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor scored before half-time, then penalties from Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham rounded off the scoring after the break.

Rodgers, who has won six out of six games at Hampden since taking over at the Glasgow club in 2016 and is unbeaten in nine Old Firm games, is aware of what could be achieved but is looking no further than the weekend.

The Celtic boss told BBC Radio Scotland: "I was very proud of the team".

"I've seen Alfredo saying in the press that he is going to score - that's the mindset of a centre-forward", he said.
