Meanwhile, Rangers legend Barry Ferguson has criticised the club for letting it be known that the players cheered the Scottish Cup semi-final draw, with the Gers taking on Celtic.

Ferguson wrote in The Daily Record: It was a massive PR blunder for the club to allow that to become public knowledge. Yes, go mental behind those four walls all you like – but for God’s sake keep it in house.

“The worry is Rangers have just handed Celtic all the motivation they will ever need for a trip across the city and I know how I’d have reacted had the boot been on the other foot.”
