Celtic-daft Rod Stewart enjoyed his team's win in the Scottish Cup semi-final today - so much so that he chose to indulge in a little ribbing of some hurting Rangers fans at Hampden.

Celtic's rising star has earned interest from a host of clubs following a sensational start to life in Scottish football over the last three seasons, and the Red Devils are hoping to edge out their rivals in the summer in the race for the 20-year-old.

Rodgers, who is looking to win back-to-back trebles with the Hoops, worked under Jose Mourinho as head youth coach of the Chelsea academy between 2004 and 2006 before becoming manager of the club's reserves.

In a first-half they thoroughly dominated, it was the Australian Rogic who was afforded far too much time in the Rangers box to turn and neatly finish the game's opener. I have been involved in nine of them and they are always complicated in their different ways so this will be no different.

Bhoys boss Brendan Rodgers picks Craig Gordon in goal, while at the back he goes with Mikael Lustig, Dedryck Boyata, Kristoffer Ajer and Kieran Tierney. "I have faith in the team and our model and the way we work".

"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".

"We have had a really good training week and we enter into it to win. But I never become that complacent".
