Former Celtic striker John Hartson has criticised the Rangers players on social networking site Twitter.

During the first half of the Old Firm derby at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon, Hartson stated on Twitter that the Rangers players looked scared and lacked character.

The Gers struggled from start to finish against Brendan Rodgers’s Celtic and lost the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup 4-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Rangers fans will agree with John Hartson

Celtic have the best squad in Scotland and were favourites to win on Sunday afternoon, but the way they dismantled the Rangers team must have been hard to watch for the Gers fans.

Hartson, who won the league title in Scotland with Celtic three times, may not be popular among the Rangers fans, but the Ibrox faithful will agree with the 43-year-old former Wales international striker’s comments.

The Rangers players should have stepped up their game against Celtic and should have given their bitter Old Firm rivals a run for their money.

Rangers now have to focus fully on finishing second in the Scottish Premiership this season.
