'We deserved it': Rodgers revels in Celtic's derby win over Rangers

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers during the Scottish Cup Quarter Final match between Celtic and Greenock Morton at Celtic Park

"But I think the players today showed their quality and that real champion mentality".

"I thought we thoroughly deserved the victory, we made some mistakes in the first half but I still thought we were the better football side".

Speaking after the game, Rodgers insisted the title race was not over "by a long way", but also added: "This is obviously a big step, nine points clear with a game in hand but still a lot of work to do. But an absolutely brilliant win and a great day for the supporters".

But Rangers stole the momentum back from their bitter rivals with Daniel Candeias putting Murty's men back in the lead just after the halfway point in the first-half.

Graeme Murty's side looked a threat every time they went forward with Alfredo Morelos causing the Hoops defence a headache with his pace and movement. We went down to 10 men but we dug deep.

"We've come here four times and won four games, so we believe we can win here all the time now".

"We'll focus on our team and how we play".

He said: "Yes, they talked all week while we sat down, we did our talking on the park". "We have to be ready for whatever they bring".

The 26-year-old, who joined the Parkhead club on loan from Dundee at the end of January, was pitched into the Ladbrokes Premiership clash in Govan as replacement for injured Dorus de Vries, who himself had recently come in for number one Craig Gordon.

That said, Rangers hailed their return to the top flight of the Scottish game in 2016 as a chance to acquire their 55th championship. "When we study opponents up here, he's been one of the very few goalkeepers I've been really impressed with".

"I thought I handled it well".

"We've let that go away, and we've let it go away by not being good at the basics and conceding three really poor goals. I would say this is the game people are talking about most in my career".
