Watch: Glorious McGregor Goal Gives Celtic The Lead In The Old Firm Derby

With Celtic having already wrapped up the league title and league cup, they went into today's Scottish Cup semi-final with a 26 game undefeated streak. They had one major hurdle to get over though, in the form of their Old Firm rivals Rangers.

The Gers had beaten Celtic in the last five Scottish Cup semi-final Old Firm meetings - including last season in a dramatic penalty shootout. Indeed, the Hoops hadn't won a cup semi-final against the blue half of Glasgow since 1925.

But as many fans will tell you, this Celtic side under Brendan Rodgers is a different machine, and they took the lead after just 10 minutes in Hampden Park.

A ball was lofted forward to the somewhat out of form Moussa Dembele. He turned brilliantly and laid it into the path of the onrushing Callum McGregor. One sidefoot later and Celtic were ahead.
