The Old Firm
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and welcome to Hampden Park! Tonight's we have the semi final of the Scottish League Cup between Celtic and Rangers! I'll hand you over now to our commentary team of Chris Sutton
and Kenny Miller
Yes what a game we have on our hands tonight Kenny! Celtic as expected dominating the league and as too are Rangers. Both teams will be coming into this fixture full of confidence won't you agree?
Absolutely, as you said Celtic are having it easy at the minute and Rangers are looking likely to go up. It should be a fantastic game of football.
What did you make of Neil Lennon's words to Dean Byrne in the past few days? He believes this too be a walkover. Do you think there is some mind games being played here?
Neil knows exactly what he's doing here but to be fair Byrne didn't bite back.
Right the formations have just come in, lets take a look at how the teams lineup
As we expected from both teams regarding formations, The only real change from Rangers is that Mark O'Hara drops to the bench after some poor league performances and in comes Chris Hegerty
No Samaras for Celtic who is currently suspended and interestingly enough Chambers and Crainey both get starts. Anyhow let's get down to kickoff
0'Rangers kick off and the atmosphere around the place is electric! Neil Lennon and Dean Byrne haven't shaken hands so at least the media will have a story gaureenteed for tomorrow.
3' Rangers win a corner after Izaguirre blocked Griffiths shot. Lee Wallace has a dangerous delivery and could be a useful threat during the game. Lee Wallace puts it in with power and finds NICKY LAW!!!!!!!!! Rangers have taken the lead and it's a Nicky Law header! The stewards are finding it hard to hold the fans back!
16' Celtic have enjoyed most of the possession since going behind but it's all in front of Rangers. Dean has got his side well drilled defensively for this game
31'Ah what a chance for Griffiths! He managed to wriggle his way past two defenders but blazes his shot over the bar
45'Rangers have looked good value for their lead so far, Celtic will need to up their game.
SubstitutionOff comes Cech who hasn't had too much to do and is replaced by O'Hara at the back for Rangers.
59'O'Hara to Johnny Russell who will fancy his chances here agaisnt Izaguirre. Oh Russell has nutmegged him and puts in a fantastic cross and NICKY LAW HAS SMASHED IT IN! What a volley that was! Rangers are in dreamland, it's 2-0!!
65'Good save from Cammy Bell! Scott Brown had a free kick from 23 yards which looks destined for the top corner, Rangers having to soak up some pressure now.
78'Wallace swings in another corner, Celtic manage to clear but only to the edge of the box and O'HARA!!!! IT'S 3-0 AND SURELY GAME OVER! Celtic fail to clear their lines properly and it's the sub that pounces.
HT - Celtic 0 - 1 Rangers
80'The Celtic fans have had enough, cries of "Cheerio Cherrio" are being heard from the Rangers fans along with "One team in Glasgow!"
81'A LIFELINE FOR CELTIC! IZAGUIRRE HEADS HOME FROM A CORNER! Celtic have got one back, can we be witnessing a great comeback?
