Celtic handed Rangers a 4-0 thrashing during Sunday's Scottish Cup semi-final, with chances few and far between for the Gers in a Hoops-dominated game.

Despite having very little to do for the majority of the encounter, Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon was called into action a couple of times, and he was on hand to deny both Alfredo Morelos and Bruno Alves.

The Colombian striker had both his efforts thwarted by the Hoops shot-stopper, and his search for a first Old Firm goal continues.

Gordon claims Morelos will no doubt be annoyed at him for denying him the chance to open his account against Celtic, and he hopes to keep thwarting the Colombian.

"I’d imagine Morelos hates the sight of me but it’s nice when you get an upper hand on a striker," Gordon told the Scottish Sun.

“It doesn’t always happen and I’m sure he will get more chances. I’ll try my best to keep them out, even if the law of averages says he will get one eventually.

“It was pleasing for me to make the saves; it helped the team, which is the most important thing."

Morelos has been sensational in front of goal for Rangers since arriving last summer, netting 18 times across all competitions, with 14 coming in 31 Scottish Premiership appearances.

The 21-year-old has featured in all four Old Firm clashes this term, but has fired blanks on each occasion, including a shocking miss from three yards with an open goal at his mercy in March.

Morelos will have another chance to finally register a goal against Celtic when both sides meet for the last time this term during the post-split fixtures towards the end of the month.

The former HJK man will have to be at his best to do so, though, as Gordon will be looking to once again get one over his rival.
