Rangers suffered an embarrassing and heavy defeat to Old Firm rivals Celtic at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon.

Graeme Murty’s side headed into the Scottish Cup semi-final tie against the Hoops high on confidence.

However, Rangers failed to compete with Brendan Rodgers’s side and suffered a comprehensive 4-0 loss.

Celtic were the better team from start to finish, and it did not help Rangers’ cause when Ross McCrorie was dismissed in the opening minutes of the second half.

The 20-year-old Scotland Under-21 international defender pulled back Moussa Dembele inside the Celtic penalty in the 51st minute.

It resulted in the sending-off of McCrorie, and Celtic striker Dembele subsequently successfully converted the spot kick.
