FORMER Celtic defender Mark Wilson admits he was ‘surprised’ to hear Ibrox players cheering at the thought of facing Celtic in the semi final of the Scottish Cup.
“I am a wee bit surprised that they were cheering the draw given their recent history against Celtic.” the player turned pundit admitted.
“When you are just managing to scrape draws and you are viewing those results as big successes, then you would have thought they would have wanted to keep them for the Final and maybe cause an upset then.”
Brendan Rodgers men have won 6 out of the 8 Glasgow Derby ties they’ve played under the Irishman, drawing 2. In that time Celtic have scored 17 goals to the Govan clubs 4.
Mark Wilson played against the old Rangers on several occasions, scoring the winner and knocking Sasa Papac out at the same time in the Scottish Cup once upon a time.
