Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers insists they will treat Rangers with the same respect shown for every opponent as he cast aside memories of the Ibrox players cheering the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final draw.

Gers boss Graeme Murty revealed his players had given a loud welcome to being paired with their rivals, a week before they lost 3-2 at home to 10-man Celtic in the league.

When asked if the memory would be etched on their minds ahead of Sunday's Hampden clash, Rodgers said: "No, it is probably something etched on Rangers' minds because this is the game that they were cheering for. For us we always respect every opponent we play and just get ready for the game."

Rodgers, who revealed Stuart Armstrong's calf injury would be assessed, added: "Every manager, coach, group is different. One of the values of this club is about humility and we respect every opponent we play, whether it is Rangers, Hibs, Aberdeen, Ross County, whoever, we always have the same respect and we just prepare for the game."
