Brendan Rodgers insists his Celtic side are focused on Sunday's William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers at Hampden Park as they look to rewrite history.

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 worldwide striker's comments.

Graeme Murty's side defended poorly as their rivals - the runaway Scottish Premiership leaders who have already won the League Cup - went 2-0 up through Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor in the first half and then made the result emphatic thanks to penalties from Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham, while Ross McCrorie was sent off. And Rodgers was delighted with what his players served up and feels they worked out Rangers' tactics and controlled the game. I have been involved in nine of them and they are always complicated in their different ways so this will be no different.

"It's about making sure we give him those opportunities and when he gets those - and he may only get one - he takes it with both hands".

"The final will be a tough game, you saw Motherwell [against Aberdeen], a totally different type of football to what we will play, which makes it a very interesting final".

Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions
West Brom caretaker Darren Moore vowed to keep battling relegation after grabbing an unlikely survival lifeline at Old Trafford . They can surpass Chelsea's Premier League record of 30 (2016-17) by winning three of their remaining five fixtures.

"It was always going to be hard, but I thought we controlled the game well in the first half".

"We have had a really good training week and we enter into it to win".

"I've seen Alfredo saying in the press that he is going to score - that's the mindset of a centre-forward", he said.

"We don't think of anything else".
