Rangers dominated the first half, and their midfield was excellent all through. They were able to play some attacking football and create a number of chances. Celtic’s defence was shaky but was able to cope.
Celtic beat Hibernian
Celtic beat Hibernian in a thrilling Sky Sports Cup semi-final live on Sky Sports on Friday night. The 2-0 win at Easter Road was the first time Celtic have beaten Hibernian since the competition’s inception. The game was the first in which VAR was introduced, and the Scottish FA moved quickly to introduce it. The other Sky Sports Cup semi-final matches will feature VAR, including the match between Hearts and Aberdeen. The matches will also be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Celtic dominated the game throughout the first half and had a number of chances to score. However, Hibs were not to be underestimated and were able to find a way to win the game despite the shaky start. Hibs’s defence were unable to cope with Celtic’s attacking style and were overrun by the home side in the first period. Celtic’s first chance came in the eighth minute when James Forrest converted a Sead Haksabanovic cross. They spent the first half overloading the Hibernian right with pressure and were able to find a way through, while Hibs’ defenders were unable to deal with the pressure.

Motherwell knocked out of Scottish Cup by Spartans
Motherwell’s 1-0 loss to Spartans in the Scottish Cup semi-final was their worst ever result. The home side are top of the Scottish league and have never reached the Scottish Cup final. They were underdogs in the match and struggled to create many chances to score. However, the women’s team managed to get the breakthrough goal that put them into the final. Megan Burns netted the opening goal after just 15 minutes. She smashed home a header with a deflection to give Motherwell a 1-0 lead.
Celtic were the favourites to reach the quarter-finals of the competition but were knocked out by Spartans. They had been unbeaten this season and Celtic had a great chance of making it through. However, Celtic had a goalkeeper who was having a great game and Spartans had to be content with the keeper’s keeper.
Glasgow City beat Rangers 8-0 in Glasgow derby
Glasgow City edged Rangers 8-0 in the Glasgow derby on Sunday, scoring six goals to Rangers’ zero. The Scots have now beaten Rangers two times and drawn once this season. Rangers are now five points behind City and Celtic. The win was the third straight win for City and their third straight win over Rangers.
Although the Old Firm may not be universally adored, many Scots see this current era as a respite from the past. This was clearly demonstrated by Hibernian FC supporter Irvine Welsh’s tweets during the game, comparing the current era to a smarmy uncle at a wedding.
Celtic progress to last four of Sky Sports Cup
Rangers and Celtic both progressed to the last four of the Sky Sports Cup after winning their respective semi-finals on penalties. However, Celtic’s opponents Spartans had a much better showing, beating them by a convincing margin. Celtic were reduced to 10 players at half-time, and had to make do with only nine available after that. The hosts had a better start, however, and dominated the majority of the game.
The stalemate between the two teams has prompted calls for an investigation into the behaviour of managers on the touchline. The former Scottish referee supports calls for managers to be investigated for their touchline behaviour, and claims that incidents like the one that occurred at Anfield can become a ‘copycat’.
