Ally McCoist and Alex Rae weren’t cracking too many jokes on Sunday as they sat next to Celtic fans at Hampden.
Pre-match hopes were transferred to confidence and optimism at the interval with Steven Gerrard’s side dominating the first half.
Only the heroics of Fraser Forster kept Celtic in the game with the keeper on a one man crusade to prevent Alfredo Morelos from finding the net.

After the first half stalemate the match changed dramatically in the first 20 minutes of the second half.
On the hour mark Chris Jullien opened the scoring when he converted a Ryan Christie free kick but soon the spotlight was at the other end of the pitch.
In one incident Jermie Frimpong was sent off but when Fraser Forster saved Alfredo Morelos’ penalty the advantage remained with Celtic.
As the clock ticked down the confidence of the Celtic support drifted towards the race for the SPFL title with two Ibrox heroes hearing in full force their worst fears as another trophy headed towards the east end of the city.
