Rangers hero Graeme Souness is hoping Celtic don't embarrass his former club.

Rangers legend and current pundit Graeme Souness has been quoted by the Belfast Telegraph that he hopes Celtic don't embarrass the Gers.

Souness, 62, is something of a Rangers legend having not only made 50 appearances for the club at the end of his playing career, before enjoying a superb spell as the club's manager.

Having won more than 63% of his games in charge of Rangers, Souness won three league titles and four League Cups before moving on to become Liverpool manager, with spells at Galatasaray, Southampton, Torino, Benfica, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United following.

Now working as a pundit for Sky Sports, Souness has been asked about the upcoming game between Rangers and their Old Firm rivals Celtic.

The Gers beat Dundee 4-0 in the last round of the Scottish Cup, setting up a semi-final clash with Celtic in the semi-finals of the competition, marking only the second meeting between the two sides since the summer of 2012

Now, manager Mark Warburton - who has his side 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship - will be hoping to cap off a superb season by beating Celtic and winning a place in the Scottish Cup final, but Souness has highlighted a major concern.

Souness has been quoted by the Belfast Telegraph as saying that he hopes Celtic don't embarrass Rangers, as whilst the Gers are in great form, Souness knows the quality that Ronny Deila's Celtic possess, and fears a one-sided encounter.

"I’m delighted that Rangers are in the semi-finals but I just hope that Celtic do not embarrass them," said Souness. "From the top league to the next division down there is always a big jump. Rangers are flying but Celtic are the best team in Scotland and I just hope it’s a competitive game," he added.
