He told Rangers' official website: "It is a massive game for us next weekend and it doesn’t matter whether it is a cup semi-final or a league game, it is Rangers v Celtic.

“We are going to go there and we are going to try and win the game. It is going to be tough but if we apply what we did today then we should be alright.”
