Brendan Rodgers has sent a Scottish Cup warning to the celebrating Sevco dressing room.
After beating Falkirk last Sunday the home dressing room at Ibrox erupted with delight when the semi-final draw paired them with the cup holders.
Graeme Murty told the club TV station about the players reaction as he made a rare slip from his predictable and scripted management talks.

In eight matches against Brendan Rodgers Sevco have suffered six defeats with just two draws that also sparked wild scenes of celebration.
Celtic have won two of those matches 5-1 and have racked up three consecutive wins at Ibrox under the Irishman.
As well as the Scottish Cup clash there is still one Premiership match to be scheduled with Sunday April 22 pencilled in for that meeting.
Celtic are strong favourites with the bookies to come out on top at Ibrox but one punter has put £15,000 on a home win at odds of 3/1.
