It's unbelievable, unbelievable! It's a spectacular opening goal in

:00:13.:00:22.

the Derby! The shop is an absolute beauty! Chance. Is this a bit of

:00:23.:00:40.

history? It is! It's there! Disses Highland history!

Cup semifinal weekend. As soon as the names came out of the hat it was

:01:53.:01:56.

always going to be big. Would it live up to the hype? Two men who

:01:57.:02:01.

have been there, done it, but the T-shirt and survived to tell the

:02:02.:02:07.

tale. Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner, former Rangers striker

:02:08.:02:11.

Stephen Thompson. Highlights of the first semifinal later, but first,

:02:12.:02:15.

love it or loathe it, you can't avoid it, the Old Firm derby back on

:02:16.:02:21.

the Scottish footballing landscape. Would it be a damp squib like last

:02:22.:02:25.

season or a thunderous return to the derbies of old? At Hamden Park,

:02:26.:02:27.

Craig Paterson and Rob Clayton. COMMENTATOR: The resources are

:02:28.:02:59.

stretched for Rangers with Harry Forrester injured. Martyn Waghorn

:03:00.:03:03.

not ready to return. Billy King and Michael O'Halloran both cup tied.

:03:04.:03:08.

Dean Shiels replaces forester. Only five players on the bench for

:03:09.:03:14.

Rangers including 17-year-old Lee Bird.

:03:15.:03:20.

Charlie Mulgrew continues in central defence. Just one change for Ronny

:03:21.:03:32.

Deila, Gary Mackay-Steven preferred to Colin Kazim-Richards. Tavener.

:03:33.:03:43.

Wonders inside. Angled ball for Kenny Miller, great touch! Great

:03:44.:03:54.

effort, great save! Craig Gordon had Kenny Miller, great touch! Great

:03:55.:04:01.

to be at his best to deny Kenny Miller yet another Old Firm goal. On

:04:02.:04:09.

his 100th appearance for Celtic. What an important stop that was from

:04:10.:04:14.

Scotland goalkeeper Craig Gordon. Room here for Stefan Johansen,

:04:15.:04:31.

finding a pocket in space. Fended away, only as far as Scott Brown,

:04:32.:04:37.

who misses a massive chance to fire Celtic in front. That's the best

:04:38.:04:41.

chance of the game. Rangers do not get it clear. The touch is good,

:04:42.:04:46.

goes across the goalkeeper, misses by half a yard. Everything looked

:04:47.:04:51.

right. Goes across the goalkeeper. Just wide.

:04:52.:05:03.

Boyata almost caught in possession by Kenny Miller, and the free kick

:05:04.:05:09.

goes Rangers way. For a moment Celtic thought it was there. No idea

:05:10.:05:14.

what he was thinking in a game of this importance. Last man, you don't

:05:15.:05:23.

try and take Kenny Miller on. Roberts teasing, tormenting, and

:05:24.:05:36.

finding roofers. From the angle. Leigh Griffiths has one thought in

:05:37.:05:43.

mind. Just drags it wide. First touch is good, the angle against

:05:44.:05:44.

him. Good movement. Free kick given

:05:45.:06:04.

against Boyata. Rangers ten to take short free kicks because they don't

:06:05.:06:09.

have a lot of height. Mark Warburton will have been working on these,

:06:10.:06:12.

let's see whether Rangers have something from the training ground.

:06:13.:06:20.

Scored against Hibs in a big game at Ibrox earlier this season,

:06:21.:06:25.

absolutely fizzed across goal. In from Tavernier. Rangers could still

:06:26.:06:36.

do some damage. Ball in from Halladay, deflected off Brown, and

:06:37.:06:41.

Kenny Miller scores! Rangers are ahead against Celtic! After 15

:06:42.:06:52.

minutes at Hampden, just like old times for the former Scotland

:06:53.:06:53.

striker. He's made such a sharp times for the former Scotland

:06:54.:06:58.

start. Celtic don't really complete the clearance. Rangers keep pressure

:06:59.:07:02.

on and eventually get the reward. It is actually a poor ball in. It's

:07:03.:07:07.

also Kenny Miller and that is a great finish. Nothing great about

:07:08.:07:13.

the ball in, but that first touch to react, knocks it into the bottom

:07:14.:07:17.

corner. Kenny Miller started sharp, now he's got his goal. Denied by

:07:18.:07:23.

Craig Gordon earlier, he wasn't going to say no to another goal to

:07:24.:07:28.

add to his tally. Kenny Miller's 19th of the season. Bodies flung in

:07:29.:07:39.

front of it. The follow-up lasted just wide. Its breathless stuff.

:07:40.:07:49.

Keirin Tierney, it was miles wide, but he certainly struck it. Ball did

:07:50.:08:07.

well. Halliday. Lovely 1-2. Jason Holt cuts inside and fails to find

:08:08.:08:08.

the target. But very impressive Holt cuts inside and fails to find

:08:09.:08:13.

build-up against up yellow absolutely wonderful. Gets onto

:08:14.:08:20.

Gets onto his right foot. Just can't get around it. Stunned silence at

:08:21.:08:27.

times from the Celtic fans that the way this match has played out so

:08:28.:08:35.

far. Mckay switching to the right side, having done damage down the

:08:36.:08:40.

left. Looping around, Tavernier, great ball in, skimming off the head

:08:41.:08:49.

of Brown. Now Mackay-Steven makes a move. He takes a touch. Griffiths,

:08:50.:09:00.

on his left foot, it's off the post, but surely! Oh, surely! Or surely

:09:01.:09:08.

not. Patrick Roberts has missed an absolute sitter. I can't believe it,

:09:09.:09:15.

Leigh Griffiths is a market comes back of the post. He has gone left

:09:16.:09:19.

footed and somehow he has managed to knock it wide. Chances don't come

:09:20.:09:28.

better. That was an absolute sitter. What will encourage Celtic is the

:09:29.:09:32.

way they created that chance. They will look to do so, create another

:09:33.:09:38.

opportunity, and take it, this time. That is a big chance spurned by

:09:39.:09:45.

them. The youngster will look to atone for his error. Roles at

:09:46.:09:52.

inside. And Johansson. Good save, Wesley Foderingham had to adjust

:09:53.:09:57.

with the ball in flight. He does well, the Rangers goalkeeper. If he

:09:58.:10:04.

hits the target, slight deflection, Leigh Griffiths was right on him

:10:05.:10:08.

like a flash. This must be all of 35 yards. It's Griffiths! It was

:10:09.:10:17.

shifting. All Wes Foderingham could do was beat this away. The

:10:18.:10:25.

goalkeeper takes no chances. The outswinger from Roberts, flicked on

:10:26.:10:27.

goalkeeper takes no chances. The by mould grew. Robert Kearnan Myall

:10:28.:10:32.

's macro clearance. Really important to challenge by

:10:33.:10:43.

Halliday. It had to be perfectly timed. You go to ground, you are

:10:44.:10:47.

going to get solid contact on the ball. His knee gets the final touch,

:10:48.:10:50.

but he gets the job done. Roberts plays it in. Flicked on by

:10:51.:11:07.

Mikael Lustig. Wilson's header. It was Sviatchenko who sees his effort

:11:08.:11:13.

blocked. Not allowing Rangers to clear their lines, keeping the

:11:14.:11:17.

pressure on. Celtic chasing an equaliser. Roberts floats this one

:11:18.:11:26.

in. There is the equaliser! And it's Sviatchenko, the Danish defender,

:11:27.:11:32.

who levels things up in this Scottish semi cup final. It's his

:11:33.:11:38.

first goal for Celtic. What a time to score your first goal and what a

:11:39.:11:42.

goal it is. The ball comes into the box. It is who can jump highest. The

:11:43.:11:48.

answer is Sviatchenko. Then, can you hit the target? It is a bullet

:11:49.:11:52.

header. Absolutely magnificent header from the centre-back. A lot

:11:53.:11:59.

of work to be done. Cracking goal. Just what Celtic wanted, within five

:12:00.:12:02.

minutes of the restart. They've levelled things up. I think he's a

:12:03.:12:10.

bit pleased. And a bit relieved. Patrick Roberts has to be the most

:12:11.:12:15.

relieved player on the pitch at that Sviatchenko equaliser. It was his

:12:16.:12:22.

corner headed in. Here he comes with another delivery, another

:12:23.:12:24.

Sviatchenko header and it's very much on target. Players in green and

:12:25.:12:30.

white are winning everything. Sviatchenko again hits the target.

:12:31.:12:32.

But an easy save that time. Celtic switching off as Rangers took

:12:33.:12:47.

the short corner. Jason Holt, wriggling his way through. Celtic

:12:48.:12:53.

now counterattacking with Roberts and Griffiths. Lee Griffiths with

:12:54.:13:03.

the cutback. Callum McGregor is denied. That is such an important

:13:04.:13:14.

challenge by Dominic Ball. Almost picked out Callum McGregor with the

:13:15.:13:18.

cutback. You cannot deny it is a nail-biting stuff. Extra time is

:13:19.:13:28.

looming. And who knows, penalties as well. Free kick. Foul on Roberts.

:13:29.:13:39.

Persistent fouling. It is a certain free kick. Another ball about to fly

:13:40.:13:46.

into the Rangers' box. Roberts floats it in. Britain's Heather is

:13:47.:13:53.

agonisingly close. The Celtic players need to get their

:13:54.:14:15.

heads on these set pieces. Nicky Law, with fresh legs getting him to

:14:16.:14:20.

the byline. That is 90 minutes played. Kenny Miller's goal

:14:21.:14:33.

cancelled out by Sviatchenko's equaliser for Celtic. An extra half

:14:34.:14:39.

an hour coming up, to try to settle this. A gripping 90 minutes,

:14:40.:14:53.

followed by an extra 30. Who will get the big win? Big question is

:14:54.:15:00.

still hanging over it. Almost a deadly delayed by Wes Foderingham.

:15:01.:15:14.

Halliday. Charlie Mulgrew was in the way. Interception by Tavernier.

:15:15.:15:36.

Britain should be aware of any shows of dissent or petulant because he

:15:37.:15:43.

has had a yellow already. The linesman said Celtic, the referee

:15:44.:15:56.

said Rangers. Barrie McKay! Scores I wonder goal for Rangers in extra

:15:57.:15:58.

time. They are ahead again. It is wonder goal for Rangers in extra

:15:59.:16:09.

2-1. Looking for something special to turn this time around and here it

:16:10.:16:16.

is from Barrie McKay. He will never have a better shot in his life.

:16:17.:16:21.

Moves onto his right, beat the goalkeeper but, right into the top

:16:22.:16:25.

corner. Absolutely top drawer. You will never see a better one than

:16:26.:16:32.

that. Craig Gordon was never getting near to this. Celtic will be livid

:16:33.:16:40.

at the award of the throw in. Our Celtic finished, can they come back

:16:41.:16:46.

again? Roberts, delivers the corner kick. It was Batman Sviatchenko

:16:47.:16:52.

again on the end of it. Celtic's best method of getting into this

:16:53.:17:01.

type, set piece into the box. Few would have seen this coming. There

:17:02.:17:06.

is still time for Celtic to turn things around.

:17:07.:17:18.

It is Tom Rogic and it is 40 seconds into the second period of extra

:17:19.:17:27.

time. Perfect reply from Celtic. It looked so simple. All into the wide

:17:28.:17:33.

area, the cup back and Rogic does the rest. He fired it into the

:17:34.:17:49.

bottom corner. Tierney has had a quiet afternoon, but has made his

:17:50.:17:55.

presence felt now. Ronnie can breathe again.

:17:56.:18:03.

Celtic lifted by the goal. Rogic again. Deflected in. Roberts!

:18:04.:18:17.

Another chance that the teenager. Should he have snapped it up first

:18:18.:18:24.

time? He tried to turn back inside and the sting was taken out of his

:18:25.:18:30.

effort. It was a big chance for Celtic to turn this much completely

:18:31.:18:35.

on it had. Now play is down towards the other end with Barry Mackay.

:18:36.:18:47.

Cleared by Sviatchenko. Wilson's had their clear. Only as far as Rogic.

:18:48.:18:52.

The Celtic fans were screaming for him to shoot. Now, Griffiths.

:18:53.:19:02.

McGregor. Rogic is in again... It brushes aside net. Deflected wide of

:19:03.:19:10.

the target. Almost a quickfire 44 Rogic. Halfway through this second

:19:11.:19:19.

period of extra time. McGregor! Great effort. Great save

:19:20.:19:38.

by Wes Foderingham. Griffiths fires it back in. I am amazed the game is

:19:39.:19:45.

going at this place. Flowing from end to end.

:19:46.:19:53.

Patrick Roberts. Finds its way to Rogic, who was held back by

:19:54.:20:06.

Halliday. It is bucking the Rangers midfielder. He will consider it was

:20:07.:20:13.

worth it. Tom Rogic was slipping into a very dangerous position and

:20:14.:20:16.

he has shown what he can do in front of the goal already. Challenge had

:20:17.:20:23.

to be made by Andy Halliday. He was willing to take the booking. It is

:20:24.:20:33.

that distance where it is awkward to score from here. The penultimate

:20:34.:20:41.

minute of extra time. Is this the moment Lee Griffiths. It is off the

:20:42.:20:46.

underside of crossbar. It came crashing back from Wes Foderingham.

:20:47.:20:54.

Did the goalkeeper get a touch? Lee Griffiths thought it was going off

:20:55.:20:58.

the goalkeeper and into the back of the net, but it has gone wide for

:20:59.:21:04.

the corner. How many volunteers for the penalties, many of the players

:21:05.:21:09.

can hardly walk, let alone take a penalty. The place in the final of

:21:10.:21:15.

the Scottish Cup final will be settled by penalties. First up the

:21:16.:21:23.

Rangers, it is Andy Halliday. Scores. Brilliantly into the top

:21:24.:21:34.

corner. Absolutely perfect, goalkeeper has no chance, goes the

:21:35.:21:40.

wrong way. It is a terrific strike from Andy Halliday. Looking to get

:21:41.:21:45.

Celtic after the ideal start is Charlie Mulgrew. His sends Wes

:21:46.:21:51.

Foderingham the wrong way. 1-1 on penalties. Equally good from Charlie

:21:52.:21:58.

Mulgrew. Goalkeeper goes one way, he slips it into the corner. James

:21:59.:22:05.

Tavernier has scored 14 times for Rangers this season. Can he find the

:22:06.:22:11.

target one more time in the shoot out? There is your answer! Over the

:22:12.:22:23.

top. Ad vantage, Celtic. He sauntered up to it. Looked really

:22:24.:22:28.

confident. At the last minute, gets his foot under the ball and it is

:22:29.:22:34.

over the bar. Looking for some divine assistance. Has Callum

:22:35.:22:44.

McGregor got what it takes? It stays at 1-1 on penalties. McGregor's miss

:22:45.:22:52.

rattling back off the crossbar. Gone further power, straight down the

:22:53.:23:02.

middle. Next up, Barrie McKay, who scored the screamer in extra time.

:23:03.:23:13.

Can he find the net again? He does, but only just and that is so painful

:23:14.:23:19.

for Craig Gordon, who got his left hand to it, but couldn't keep it

:23:20.:23:23.

out. He guessed right, got their book couldn't get a solid hand

:23:24.:23:33.

behind it. Bittton appeared to be struggling with bad hamstring

:23:34.:23:36.

problem. Look like he wanted to come off at one stage. But he steps up to

:23:37.:23:48.

take Celtic's third penalty. 2-1 Rangers at the moment on penalties.

:23:49.:23:53.

That makes it 2-2. Super-confident from a player who looked like he was

:23:54.:24:00.

struggling during the game. The classic go down the middle, you know

:24:01.:24:02.

the goalkeeper is going to die. classic go down the middle, you know

:24:03.:24:10.

after extra time, 2-2 on penalties. Nicky Clark. Craig Gordon makes the

:24:11.:24:17.

save. A century of Celtic appearances and is that a turning

:24:18.:24:20.

point in the shoot out? Great reflexes. His dad in the crowd.

:24:21.:24:29.

Horrible for his son. When for the power but it was a great save by

:24:30.:24:37.

Craig Gordon. It is the captain. Scott Brown! Saved by Wes

:24:38.:24:43.

Foderingham. It was up for penalty. It is another mess. It was an easy

:24:44.:24:53.

save. Nowhere near the corner and a good height for the goalkeeper. They

:24:54.:25:02.

have scored two and missed two each. It is Lee Wallace. It is perfect.

:25:03.:25:06.

Celtic have two score the next one to stay alive. That is the way to do

:25:07.:25:13.

it from the Rangers' skipper. Right in the corner, perfect. Who would

:25:14.:25:19.

you want in a crisis? Surely, Lee Griffiths. It is 3-3 on penalties.

:25:20.:25:31.

Now it becomes sudden death. Lee Griffiths has missed a couple but

:25:32.:25:34.

steps up and does a great job. What a moment for 19-year-old Gedion

:25:35.:25:41.

Zelalem. Can the youngster saddle his nerves? Sensational. It sends

:25:42.:25:50.

Craig Gordon the wrong way. Some people might be panicking, not him.

:25:51.:25:56.

Young nerves, supercool. Always look like he was going to find the back

:25:57.:26:07.

of the net. The experience of the Swedish international has two score.

:26:08.:26:15.

He bills. Another beautifully taken penalty from Mikael Lustig. Top

:26:16.:26:22.

quality. The goalkeeper guesses right. Almost get there but there is

:26:23.:26:27.

enough power in the effort. Hope you are keeping count. Nicky Law! Very

:26:28.:26:38.

good indeed. Craig Gordon went to his right, the ball went to his

:26:39.:26:44.

left. Opened up the ankle, goes into the bottom corner and keeps the

:26:45.:26:47.

left. Opened up the ankle, goes into pressure on. As Rangers keep putting

:26:48.:26:52.

these away, the tension just ratchets up from the Celtic players

:26:53.:26:59.

who have to follow up and keep themselves alive. And Tom Rogic

:27:00.:27:03.

makes a real mess of that penalty. Rangers have pulled off this

:27:04.:27:12.

seemingly unthinkable. So many people had Celtic winning this

:27:13.:27:17.

semifinal on cruise control and what does this all mean for the Celtic

:27:18.:27:24.

manager, Ronnie Deila? It is a smile as wide as the Clyde on the face of

:27:25.:27:30.

Mark Warburton. The underdogs have done the business. What sort of

:27:31.:27:38.

signals does this send out for next season in the Premiership?

:27:39.:27:45.

A great game, huge drama and an absorbing afternoon of football.

:27:46.:27:52.

Finally, victory for Rangers. A deserved victory, said the Rangers

:27:53.:27:58.

manager, Mark Warburton afterwards. Pat, would you agree? It was

:27:59.:28:05.

definitely Rangers' day. In the first half I thought they played

:28:06.:28:08.

well. They were composed, passed the ball. But the battle was in the wide

:28:09.:28:15.

areas and Celtic came out on top. We talked about it before the game, how

:28:16.:28:19.

would they cope with Roberts on one side. Gary Mackay-Steven didn't

:28:20.:28:25.

perform. Roberts did OK for a period of the game.

:28:26.:28:33.

They had magnificent chances. They had a lot of chances to win, even in

:28:34.:28:41.

the penalty shoot out, they had a chance to go into the lead and

:28:42.:28:47.

didn't take it. Celtic had the chances, Mark Warburton says it was

:28:48.:28:50.

a deserved win for Rangers, what's your view? I would agree. It was a

:28:51.:28:56.

great game and a great advert for Scottish football. The atmosphere.

:28:57.:29:01.

The pitch was good. From the start Rangers looked confident, sealed and

:29:02.:29:05.

well prepared. They dominated possession. Celtic did create one or

:29:06.:29:10.

two good openings. But they were laboured in the opening half and did

:29:11.:29:15.

not lay a glove on Rangers. Second-half Celtic came out very

:29:16.:29:19.

strongly. Little period just after half-time when they forced four

:29:20.:29:23.

Corners, got their goal to get back into it. At that point you expected

:29:24.:29:29.

Celtic to kick on. I was thinking Rangers would be under the cosh

:29:30.:29:33.

because Celtic were in the ascendancy. For me they seemed to

:29:34.:29:36.

drop deep and allow Rangers to keep the ball against point you are an

:29:37.:29:41.

expert when it comes to veteran strikers, Kenny Miller... He's not a

:29:42.:29:48.

veteran, he's only 36! Plenty of life left in those legs? Absolutely,

:29:49.:29:53.

and this kind of run is how he made his career, off the shoulder of the

:29:54.:29:57.

defender. That is very clever movement. And this is a very

:29:58.:30:01.

opportunistic goal. He points to where he wants the ball. Boyata is

:30:02.:30:07.

sleeping a bit. Look who reacts first, Kenny Miller. He's trying to

:30:08.:30:13.

do the right thing, but the reaction in the box is the key to this goal.

:30:14.:30:19.

Huge moment, Pat. Another huge moment was the miss from Patrick

:30:20.:30:23.

Roberts. Comparisons with Lionel Messi, but today they were more

:30:24.:30:31.

comparisons to a bad miss for Rangers. He is a young man and he

:30:32.:30:35.

has produced some great games but this will live with him for a long

:30:36.:30:38.

has produced some great games but time. Will that scar him? I hope

:30:39.:30:43.

not. He's only a young player, but what an opportunity, just hit the

target. When it comes off the post you are already saying, equaliser.

:30:49.:30:52.

I'm sitting in the lounge with my mouth wide open. One of those horror

:30:53.:30:59.

moments and I feel for him. Having missed opportunities myself as a

:31:00.:31:01.

strike in the past in big matches, it plays on your mind, all night,

:31:02.:31:07.

all week, it runs on loop in your head but you've got to get over it.

:31:08.:31:12.

But a horrible moment for him. It will take some time. Lacklustre

:31:13.:31:16.

performance around the pitch in many ways from Celtic at times but a

:31:17.:31:20.

shining light once again, keirin Tierney. Listen, we talked about him

:31:21.:31:27.

all season. He's been absolutely fantastic. At times it was almost

:31:28.:31:31.

two against one, three against one, and he got across. Getting himself

:31:32.:31:37.

back into good positions, awareness, his body into defendant. Nobody

:31:38.:31:42.

better in this league in this moment in time that can defend in the way

:31:43.:31:48.

he does. He does it so, so well. He gets his tackles in. He's a bit like

:31:49.:31:53.

Danny McGrady, when you got hit, you knew you were hit. He's got that.

:31:54.:32:00.

This was excellent. Really good run in, shows real awareness to pick out

:32:01.:32:08.

Rogic for the goal. Rogic had an interesting time when he came on the

:32:09.:32:12.

pitch. Obviously he got the goal, massive moment in the penalty shoot

:32:13.:32:17.

out, freakish moment as well. I feel like the defence counsel here. The

:32:18.:32:24.

pitch rose, didn't it? Watches standing foot before he kicks the

:32:25.:32:29.

ball. Our whole piece of turf moves and lifts the ball and inch off the

:32:30.:32:34.

ground. I think the penalty kick he was hitting was going high anyway,

:32:35.:32:38.

possibly into the top corner. The ball sat up an extra inch. Why did

:32:39.:32:43.

it have to happen to a Celtic player? It sat up and inch, almost

:32:44.:32:49.

like a golf ball on a tee. You had to feel sorry for him. He came on

:32:50.:32:53.

and he made an impact. to feel sorry for him. He came on

:32:54.:33:00.

Due to an ongoing situation between BBC Scotland and Rangers, no

:33:01.:33:03.

interviews with the Rangers manager or the players, but we did hear from

:33:04.:33:08.

the Celtic can. Craig Gordon coming up, but first Ronny Deila. Very

:33:09.:33:16.

disappointed, of course. Tough game. Overall I am disappointed in the

:33:17.:33:17.

performance, we should have been Overall I am disappointed in the

:33:18.:33:20.

better than what we were. Did not think we were pressing good enough

:33:21.:33:23.

in the first half and we did not keep it well either. In the first

:33:24.:33:28.

half Rangers was the best thing. In the second half we went harder on

:33:29.:33:32.

them. And we get our goal. That was positive. After that I think also we

:33:33.:33:35.

them. And we get our goal. That was should be better on the ball and

:33:36.:33:40.

create more. At the same time they did not create a lot. We should have

:33:41.:33:45.

been better. We should have performed first. If we had done that

:33:46.:33:48.

we probably would have went on to win the game. Some fans have taken

:33:49.:33:52.

to social media to suggest your time as Celtic manager may be up, is it?

:33:53.:33:57.

In football you never know with these kind of questions. It is

:33:58.:34:03.

always hard pressure here. What I'm thinking now is to go out to win the

:34:04.:34:07.

league. That's the most important thing now, and then we'll see after

:34:08.:34:12.

the season what we will do. Are you categorically convinced you will be

:34:13.:34:15.

Celtic manager next year? You never know in football. But this is a

:34:16.:34:20.

fantastic job and something I want to carry on with. Do you want to

:34:21.:34:26.

carry on? Of course I want to. Lets cut to the chase. Does Ronny Deila

:34:27.:34:31.

face the sack? He's really disappointed. After getting this

:34:32.:34:39.

defeat. I've said it all season, the league is a taking. Still they had

:34:40.:34:44.

to do the business and that but I think it is a taking. Back-up you

:34:45.:34:49.

have to win this season, they haven't won either. Big decisions to

:34:50.:34:58.

be made now by the board. I think he should be given the chance to win

:34:59.:35:03.

his league, no question of that. But will they take a chance for him? I'm

:35:04.:35:08.

not too sure. It's going to be very difficult. You don't think he will

:35:09.:35:14.

be there next season. I would agree. He has been up against it since his

:35:15.:35:18.

disastrous European campaign, I don't think he has recovered. League

:35:19.:35:23.

form has been indifferent. Out of both cups, not acceptable. Dwindling

:35:24.:35:27.

crowds. Not sure about the squad size. You have to say as well that

:35:28.:35:33.

his players have underperformed. A large number of his players have

:35:34.:35:37.

underperformed massively. To give him credit today, at half-time he

:35:38.:35:41.

obviously did something because they came out at half-time and he got

:35:42.:35:45.

them going. At half-time in extra time he got them going, got a goal

:35:46.:35:51.

back. Is that enough? The Champions League is a big thing this year.

:35:52.:35:56.

They will get into it, whether they will qualify, that is a must for

:35:57.:35:59.

Celtic Football Club. They haven't shown in Europe and we were critical

:36:00.:36:03.

of them at the start of the year. Knocked out by Rangers, still a

:36:04.:36:07.

championship team. He will get to the end of the season and that's it?

:36:08.:36:12.

He showed. He definitely deserves to win the league Trophy at I can't see

:36:13.:36:16.

a way back for him after that. Rangers into the Scottish Cup final.

:36:17.:36:21.

Great day for the Rangers fans at Hampden Park. Fantastic, absolutely

:36:22.:36:24.

fantastic, boys. I'm so proud of Hampden Park. Fantastic, absolutely

:36:25.:36:30.

boys. The bar has been raised and we are back. We will win the league

:36:31.:36:35.

next year. We can beat anybody. They played well. They did us proud. I

:36:36.:36:43.

was glad we got there in the end. First half of it slow, second-half

:36:44.:36:47.

always on top. It's an exciting time to be a Rangers fan. The Rangers

:36:48.:36:54.

fans went home happy. The manager very happy with how his players

:36:55.:36:58.

executed the game plan. Rangers have played a possession based game all

:36:59.:37:02.

season. The big question was whether they could execute it against the

:37:03.:37:04.

best team in the country and the answer was yes. The display in the

:37:05.:37:09.

first half in terms of possession was phenomenal. I could have picked

:37:10.:37:13.

20 clips of them keeping the ball. They went all the way across the

:37:14.:37:17.

pitch, the passing today was crisp. Started in such a relaxed manner.

:37:18.:37:25.

Confident. You liked this one. You can see from Celtic, Mikael Lustig

:37:26.:37:28.

had pulled out of position, probably too easily, he could have passed

:37:29.:37:35.

into midfield. Robert is a problem, he has to defend this big space in

:37:36.:37:39.

behind. That was an issue throughout the game for them. It was but it is

:37:40.:37:44.

a feature of Rangers play, they have been doing it all season. They get

:37:45.:37:49.

an early shot off, and looked particularly impressive. Mark

:37:50.:37:51.

Warburton has instilled it that they have to keep the ball, take it under

:37:52.:37:56.

any circumstances. The composure the defenders had in abundance. They get

:37:57.:38:02.

pressed here. Decides to go along but again finds his man with the

:38:03.:38:06.

past. Good support play from Barrie McKay as well. Young Tierney as

:38:07.:38:11.

well. He shows really good defending. I was impressed with

:38:12.:38:16.

Rangers way they played little triangles. In this situation, there

:38:17.:38:19.

are three Rangers players, we will triangles. In this situation, there

:38:20.:38:23.

highlight them just now. The ball moves but the players also moved to

:38:24.:38:27.

get options on the ball, and they exploit the space. You will see the

:38:28.:38:31.

end of it here, exploiting space and almost getting a chance. Barrie

:38:32.:38:36.

McKay makes this movement all day long. Unlucky not to get in again,

:38:37.:38:42.

but they were lucky in possession. Speaking of Barrie McKay staving,

:38:43.:38:49.

stunning strike from him. -- Gary Mackay-Steven. The Celtic fans and

:38:50.:38:52.

staff will be talking about this probably tomorrow. Maybe the referee

:38:53.:38:57.

was unsighted that it was definitely a Celtic throw in. The assistant on

:38:58.:39:02.

this site did give it to Celtic and the referee overruled him. At that

:39:03.:39:09.

point there is still a long way to go to the Celtic game. Look at the

:39:10.:39:13.

Rangers players here picking up the ball in acres of space. We

:39:14.:39:18.

highlighted the run out to in, watching take up this space as the

:39:19.:39:23.

ball comes along. Cheap from Celtic, not doing their jobs defensively

:39:24.:39:27.

properly from a throw in. I'll pause it, look at the amount of space he

:39:28.:39:33.

is in, here, phenomenal amount of space, he gets the ball, turns,

:39:34.:39:39.

there is still an awful lot to do. And what a strike. It was a great

:39:40.:39:44.

goal. Still had a little bit to do, back to goal, he turned Scott Brown.

:39:45.:39:48.

Craig Gordon had no chance with that. None whatsoever and it was a

:39:49.:39:52.

very impressive performance from Rangers. Great goal from Barrie

:39:53.:39:57.

McKay. Rangers are in the final of the Scottish Cup, congratulations to

:39:58.:40:04.

them. The first semifinal was played yesterday, Hibs against Dundee

:40:05.:40:04.

United. COMMENTATOR: The 200th meeting of

:40:05.:40:34.

Hebburn Ian and Dundee United sees two clubs who is respectively

:40:35.:40:38.

campaigns are in serious danger of imploding -- Hibernian. Hibs in

:40:39.:40:44.

their fourth Scottish Cup semifinal in the last five years, only winning

:40:45.:40:49.

one of their last seven championship matches, having been a serious

:40:50.:40:52.

threat to Rangers at the top for two thirds of the campaign. The road to

:40:53.:40:57.

promotion looks like it could be a long one. United haven't got going

:40:58.:41:02.

as they prop up the Premiership, eight points from salvation, with

:41:03.:41:04.

only five games left to political off. Hibs without the suspended Mark

:41:05.:41:11.

Oxley after contact lens gate in the last round in Inverness. Debut for

:41:12.:41:17.

the 29-year-old Irishman Conrad Logan in goal. James Keatings is

:41:18.:41:26.

also banned. Hibs haven't won this for a while but Anthony Stokes has,

:41:27.:41:33.

twice. He, McGregor and grey are walking a suspension tightrope. Make

:41:34.:41:38.

soup at a line and has been putting Gavin Gunning related

:41:39.:41:42.

His mysterious departure came at a time when nothing could be doing

:41:43.:41:45.

without any extra hassles. Blair Spittal starts for the first

:41:46.:41:50.

time in a month. This is Lewis Stevenson, first

:41:51.:42:09.

chance for him, perhaps. Going for the spectacular. 23 times this

:42:10.:42:15.

season he has scored. He's certainly capable. The ball comes in, he sees

:42:16.:42:18.

it barely. Just can't get over it. it barely. Just can't get over it.

:42:19.:42:30.

-- he sees it barely. A chance! And the Hibs debutant comes up with an

:42:31.:42:33.

answer. Morris showed way too much of it.

:42:34.:42:54.

He's given a penalty for handball! I think Donaldson gets the head down

:42:55.:42:59.

and the arm up here. Unusual position. Awkward one. Very

:43:00.:43:01.

difficult to tell. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. What was

:43:02.:43:19.

that? At this stage of the competition, you don't need that.

:43:20.:43:23.

You need the ball in the back of the net.

:43:24.:43:28.

Fancies it! You don't want to give him room. From 30 yards income he

:43:29.:43:40.

just takes a step and he heads an absolute beauty. Rising all the

:43:41.:43:44.

time, but just too high. But what a hit.

:43:45.:43:54.

Billy Mackay, was in again. He was denied by Conrad Logan. The

:43:55.:43:59.

goalkeeper has been worth his denied by Conrad Logan. The

:44:00.:44:03.

in gold. Great ball and a great take. Close,

:44:04.:44:34.

but not close enough. Paul Payton. Erskine was onside. Still alive. Of

:44:35.:44:44.

the line by Hanlon. Little flick, just onside. United should have made

:44:45.:44:54.

Hibs pay. Paul Donaldson is down again. Had to be treated earlier. A

:44:55.:45:02.

tweak in your hamstring sometime becomes worse. You should say to the

:45:03.:45:10.

manager, I am going to become a liability, you need to make a

:45:11.:45:17.

change. United haven't even got a substitute ready. John Beaton, into

:45:18.:45:33.

extra time. John McGinlay hasn't been the influence in the game we

:45:34.:45:35.

know he can be. The keeper had to make the save.

:45:36.:45:46.

John Rankin, thought he was scoring. Another wonderful save. That was

:45:47.:45:56.

going in the bottom corner. Another good save! Still alive will stop

:45:57.:46:02.

Conrad Logan has just received a standing ovation from the Hibs

:46:03.:46:07.

supporters. He has been an absolute star.

:46:08.:46:23.

The goalkeeper decided to just punch that. It looked unorthodox from the

:46:24.:46:34.

Japanese. He has blown the whistle and the first Scottish Cup semifinal

:46:35.:46:44.

is going to a penalty shoot out. Blair Spittal is up first. Wouldn't

:46:45.:46:48.

is going to a penalty shoot out. you know it! The man of the moment

:46:49.:46:54.

does it again! John McGinn, to put them in front. And he does. As

:46:55.:46:59.

does it again! John McGinn, to put decisive as you get. Billy McKay I

:47:00.:47:07.

missed a couple of good chances. And another save from Logan.

:47:08.:47:17.

Paul Hanlon, who scored the late equaliser against Hearts, makes it

:47:18.:47:30.

two. Paul Dixon has two score for Dundee United. He does. They are

:47:31.:47:44.

still breathing. Martin Boyle has the chance to move Hibs closer to

:47:45.:47:50.

the final. Another wonderful penalty.

:47:51.:48:05.

Guide them out. The weight of world was on his shoulders. Jason

:48:06.:48:14.

Cummings has the chance to put Hibs into the final. In he goes... It is

:48:15.:48:31.

Glory, Glory. Jason Cummings can raise all memories of the penalty

:48:32.:48:36.

miss in the first half. He has taken Hibs through to the final, with more

:48:37.:48:41.

than a helping hand from Conrad Logan. It finished goalless after

:48:42.:48:47.

extra time. Jason Cummings with the winning penalty.

:48:48.:48:53.

A dull first half we were good and Dundee United were the better team.

:48:54.:49:03.

They got to a point for both teams didn't want to lose the game.

:49:04.:49:09.

Obviously when called upon and you can produce things, I am delighted.

:49:10.:49:12.

Obviously when called upon and you Created loads of clear-cut chances

:49:13.:49:15.

and they haven't taken them. In the end they have cost us. We simply

:49:16.:49:20.

needed to put those chances away. What an afternoon of the big man

:49:21.:49:26.

between the sticks for Hibs. Conrad Logan already a hero with the Easter

:49:27.:49:32.

Road faithful. His last match, December 2014 before that. He is a

:49:33.:49:37.

player you know well? I knew him from Donegal, knew his dad who

:49:38.:49:44.

played as well. They played against Aberdeen in the European

:49:45.:49:48.

competition. He was a Young man, trying to find his way. He moved

:49:49.:49:51.

over to Leicester and I didn't see much of him after that. What a game

:49:52.:50:00.

he had. He is of course, not match fit, but he was technically very

:50:01.:50:05.

good, made decisions. Spreading himself, coming up quickly and

:50:06.:50:08.

killing the space. Had a fantastic game. This was the first penalty

:50:09.:50:14.

save. I've thought he was going to save all of them. The second penalty

:50:15.:50:20.

was a really good save. Low down to his right hand side. Fantastic

:50:21.:50:26.

penalty, you couldn't write it any better. He is deserving of his hero

:50:27.:50:32.

status. He enjoyed that, he really did. He has got a couple of months

:50:33.:50:39.

now. He has a chance of getting a contract and coming up here. He was

:50:40.:50:46.

out of a job. It was a day for big personalities and you have two said

:50:47.:50:49.

Jason Cummings is a play with personality? He is, without doubt.

:50:50.:50:54.

If you're going to do this, you have to make sure you score. If I was one

:50:55.:50:59.

of his team-mates... Absolutely crazy. What is riding on the game.

:51:00.:51:12.

It shows a bit of bottle to go up and hit the next one, which wasn't a

:51:13.:51:16.

great penalty. He is a lucky Young man. If you are the manager, what

:51:17.:51:24.

would you say to him? I with taking him aside and saying, never, ever

:51:25.:51:27.

try that again. Imagine if they went out of the cup after doing that.

:51:28.:51:34.

There would have been a line of players in my day, waiting for him.

:51:35.:51:42.

There is a fine line between confidence, you go into an ego

:51:43.:51:47.

thing. There will be managers watching him. I know a couple of

:51:48.:51:50.

managers who have in watching him who would have been interested in

:51:51.:51:54.

taking him. They might not be interesting now. What was this

:51:55.:52:04.

between Carl Donaldson and the manager. He was injured, but he was

:52:05.:52:16.

wanted to get off the pitch. But I think the officials were trying to

:52:17.:52:20.

get him off the pitch. The manager had time to get a substitute ready

:52:21.:52:26.

because he had been carrying the injury for some time. I remember

:52:27.:52:30.

watching Dundee United in the European, watching with Tommy Burns

:52:31.:52:35.

at that level, now to get relegated this year with a huge. Players would

:52:36.:52:39.

have to go, but the wages. Do all the things clubs don't want to do

:52:40.:52:45.

and it will affect the club. We'll be bounced back, that is the

:52:46.:52:48.

question? They had chances to win the game, but that has been the

:52:49.:52:53.

problem for them all season. We know who will be in the Scottish Cup

:52:54.:53:02.

problem for them all season. We know final, Hibs against Rangers. Who

:53:03.:53:08.

will win it? It'll be interesting. Hibs, two cup finals. Suddenly it

:53:09.:53:14.

could be a disaster. I would like to go for Hibs. Going to be a busy

:53:15.:53:20.

schedule because Rangers have a lay-off before the match? Rangers

:53:21.:53:24.

have a couple of weeks off, which will benefit them after a long

:53:25.:53:28.

season. Hibs are already looking tired, so they could do with arrest.

:53:29.:53:31.

For the first time ever the Scottish Cup final will be contested by two

:53:32.:53:41.

sides out of the top flight. From all others here, good night.

:53:42.:53:52.

Introduced by Jonathan Sutherland.

Scottish Cup semi-final highlights. Premiership Champions Celtic and newly crowned Championship winners Rangers go head to head at Hampden for a place in the 2016 Scottish Cup final. It's the first meeting between the sides in the competition in more than five years and with both teams chasing League and Cup double success, it will no doubt be as intense a meeting as ever. In the other semi-final, relegation battlers Dundee United take on promotion hopefuls Hibernian. These two sides have both lost finals in recent years and will see these disappointments as incentive to get to the big stage again.
