Brendan Rodgers is focused on delivering the treble for Celtic in a spectacular fashion this season.

The former Premier League manager has been excellent in his debut season. As they head into the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers on Sunday, Alex McLeish opines that there is no pressure on them to win the game at Hampden Park as all the pressure is on the underdogs Rangers.

With the League cup in the bag, Sunday’s victory would see them en route to doing the treble. McLeish says Ibrox has more pressure to end the domestic unbeaten run of their rivals, aside it being a chance to get a silverware.

“This is the game where Pedro will learn what Rangers Football Club is all about and what it means to play in the derby against Celtic. I just don’t see that Celtic are under a lot of pressure. I think they are on the crest of a wave, they’ve won the league very comfortable, they haven’t lost a game,” he said.

McLeish added that the Celtic team would be feeling “super confident” ahead of the game as opposed to being under pressure.

“There is more pressure on my old club Rangers to try and stop Celtic from lifting three trophies this season. That will be the uppermost thing in every Rangers fan’s mind and certainly everyone within Ibrox,” McLeish added.

Hoops legend Johan Mjalby praised the team for their local exploits but quickly reminded that they were not on the level of the Martin O’Neill’s side that did the treble in the early 2000s. He asked for more time for the team to gel but that even with that they might not reach the Hoops’ team of 2001.
