  • Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers waves to the crowd at the final whistle as Celtic win 3-0 during the Scottish Cup Quarter Final match between Celtic and Greenock Morton at Celtic Park

Pressley, who made his European debut in the 2-2 draw with Marseille at Ibrox in November 1992, told AFP.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has told Rangers players to "just be careful what you wish for" in response to them cheering the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final draw against the Hoops.

"Rangers need to win the game and that's the difference, there is a different psychology going into it, in relation to that". "It's not until you look back on your career that you realise how fortunate you were to be involved in those games.?"

Having taken a 1-0 lead into their Europa League last-32 second-leg tie against Zenit St. Petersburg, Celtic capitulated and lost the tie 3-1 on aggregate.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that the pressure is on Rangers ahead of this weekend's Old Firm derby clash at Ibrox Stadium.

Former youth coach Graeme Murty?s appointment as manager until the end of the season has brought some much-needed stability and confidence to a Rangers side that had failed to win three consecutive games under previous incumbent Pedro Caixinha.

Celtic are top of the Scottish Premiership, but Rangers are just six points behind, which is a remarkably small gap compared to the recent history of the two sides.

"For the supporters, the main thing was to get back in this league and to compete again in Old Firm games".

"This is the first time we have gone into this fixture and they have been talking about the game, which is a real positive for me in how far we have come as a football club and a squad".

For me it's a must win game for Rangers as a Celtic win ends any doubt about where the league title is going to go.

"This is the biggest test we now have and we have got a group of players who are really positive, really hungry and desperate to do well, which is a great thing for a manager".
