“But it was about playing football and bouncing back from a performance we were not happy with.
“The fans who were here were good. They stood behind the team and I’m very happy with that. We have to build up the trust of the fans. It is a win-win situation if we perform.
“It’s much better to get applause instead of boos, that’s for sure. Hopefully, that will continue.
“A lot of things were different against Morton. First of all, we got a lot more rhythm into our play. We got the ball quicker into their half and got more angles. It was small details. It was a little bit sharper and we still have more to do.
“It was very nice to win. We took a good lead into half-time and the game was finished by then. We kept on and won very comfortably.
“It’s hard to say how much I needed that victory. You also need to ask how much I needed a semi-final. Of course, I want to win the trophy and we now have two more games to, hopefully, lift it.
“And it’s fair to say Celtic are favourites. There’s nothing new there.”
