Rangers star Lee Wallace explains how Ibrox dressing room would feel about drawing Celtic

Celtic V Rangers Reserves

Rangers skipper Lee Wallace would relish facing Celtic.

Rangers defender Lee Wallace has told The Herald that the Ibrox dressing room would love the chance to take on Celtic in the Scottish Cup.

The Gers advanced into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on Saturday afternoon, having hammered Dundee in a convincing performance at Ibrox.

Goals from Harry Forrester, Jason Holt, Andy Halliday and Wallace himself gave Rangers a 4-0 victory, and sent them into the draw for the semi-finals.

Dundee United are also in the hat having beaten Ross County, whilst Hibernian meet Inverness today and Celtic take on Morton in a game they should ease through.

The prospect of an Old Firm clash in the semi-final or even the final is drawing closer now, just over a year after Celtic beat Rangers 2-0 in the Scottish League Cup in what was a comfortable game for the Bhoys.

This is a much different Rangers side to that day though, and with Celtic struggling under manager Ronny Deila, Gers boss Mark Warburton may think that he can lead his side to a win over the Bhoys, if they are drawn together.

Now, Rangers captain Wallace has told The Herald that he would look forward to such a game, and the rest of the Ibrox dressing room would relish the opportunity to play in one of the fiercest rivalries in world football, before praising the display against Dundee.

"It would be a great game," said Wallace. "We’re all very much aware that it’s one of the biggest derbies in world football. It’s a game that everyone in that dressing room would really look forward to."

"This was certainly up there among our best performances of the season. The overriding feeling is that that was one of the best and that’s a standard we have to replicate every time we take to the pitch," he added.

Could Rangers beat Celtic if they were drawn together?
