Murty sorry after Old Firm hammering


By Graham Luney

Boss Graeme Murty apologised to Rangers fans after their side were thrashed 4-0 by Celtic in yesterday's Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

Goals from Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham humbled the Gers who also lost defender Ross McCrorie to a straight red card.

Stunned Ibrox chief Murty said: "I would apologise to them for the game. I would ask for their patience and to keep believing but it is no good to keep asking it. You have to go and put a performance in to be worthy of their support."

Two Ulstermen will be rival bosses in the May 19 final as Brendan Rodgers' Hoops face Stephen Robinson's Motherwell. "That won't be an easy game either, that is a totally different game again with their physicality," said Rodgers who has gone 10 Old Firm games unbeaten since he arrived in Glasgow in 2016.
