We knew from start to finish that we were going to dominate this game, we fancied it today, we turned up, and we knew as soon as we turned up, and we played our game on a good pitch that nobody can deal with us.It was embarrassing to come off that pitch after a performance like that. "We train every single day and the energy levels are there but we were second best in nearly everything today - second balls, first balls, it was just unacceptable for Rangers". But when it comes to one against one, you have to actually get up closer to your opponent than we did in the first period. There seemed to be mutiny in the ranks too as Andy Halliday and Daniel Candeias reacted angrily to being substituted.
"I wouldn't have been happy if I was taken off".
"We were not worthy of getting anything from the game today". I completely understand Andy's frustration but I was reacting to a situation in the game and looking at a different shape to the team.
"I've no idea [if the occasion got to us]. I will speak to him in the week, we will have a chat and move forward from there".
'There was emotion, anger, disappointment in the dressing room - all the things you would expect after a game like that.
The Hoops thumped Rangers at Hampden Park and were inspired by their Australian midfielder, who opened the scoring with a crafty piece of skill in the 22nd minute.
Although he didn't get himself on the scoresheet, Celtic captain Scott Brown played a blinder in central midfield.
Former Celtic player Kris Commons added: "It was men against boys".
"It's credit to the guys that came in, we have lifted ourselves for a big game again, to go out there and get the result".
Murty, who refused to discuss his hopes of retaining his post beyond the end of the campaign, also apologised to Rangers supporters and asked them "for their patience and to keep believing".
"It has been brilliant the whole time I have been at the club".
