Celtic teenage talent makes an admission about Ibrox side Rangers

Ibrox side Rangers will face Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has admitted to The Daily Record that the game against Rangers this coming weekend will not be easy.

The Bhoys will take on Old Firm rivals Rangers in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Sunday afternoon.

Ronny Deila’s side will head into the tie as favourites, as they are the stronger team and are also in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers, though, will give Celtic a run for their money. The Gers, who won the Scottish Championship title last week and will play in the Scottish Premiership next season, are a good side as well.

Scotland international Tierney, who plays as a left-back and is just 18 years of age, believes that the match against Rangers will be hard.

The highly-rated teenager has also suggested that the Gers deserve their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup this season.

“I’m not sure if the status of the teams makes the pressure different,” Tierney told The Daily Record. “Any team that gets to a semi-final deserves to be there. It would be a hard game no matter who we are playing.”

Rangers will head into the match against Celtic on the back of a 4-0 victory over Peterhead in the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
