Erik Sviatchenko: Rangers have not narrowed gap to Celtic

The Rangers stopper denied Griffiths a second for Celtic when the forward raced clear on goal and Brendan Rodgers' side held on to book a meeting with Aberdeen in the final on 28 November (AEDT).

"I came here to win things and if we can get a bit of silverware before Christmas, we have something to build on. There is a real togetherness in this squad, we all have each other's back and I'm enjoying being here". We were dominant and could have scored more than just one goal'.

"I have played with the greatest strikers, Ronaldo, Henry, Raul, and you knew on the biggest occasions they would win you games - and Dembele is already showing that".

Rodgers admitted relief at getting the victor in the nervy closing stages.

Speaking ahead of his first ever visit to the National Stadium, Rodgers said: "I've never had any trouble since I've been up here".

Sinclair added: "It was a great win over Rangers and we are happy to be through to the final".

"They will have watched us closely in the last couple of weeks knowing this game was coming up".

"We will look to take that mentality into Sunday's game".

Rangers had selected full-backs Lee Hodson and James Tavernier down the right to deal with the pace of Sinclair and Kieran Tierney, which caused them so much damage in their September mauling by Celtic.

Early intervention will be key in tackling troublemakers at this weekend's Scottish League Cup semi-finals, police have said. It was nip and tuck with chances at both ends and that one went in.

"The so-called gap is a lot narrower than people think and we have to learn from today's performance".

'I can only really look at it from a Celtic perspective and I think it was shown that we were pretty dominant in the game. We will regroup and we will recover and be ready to go on Sunday.

"The aim is to work hard and continue that progress".

The Celtic defender kept his eyes on the ball throughout the move but for reasons best known to himself Thomson spotted an infringement as 38-year-old Clint Hill fell to the ground in instalments as Sviatchenko redirected the ball into the net. You might come from a team where you have 40% possession to Rangers where you have 70% possession.
