MIKAEL LUSTIG has told shell-shocked Sevco Rangers that Celtic should have scored TEN in their 5-1 massacre of Pedro Caixinha’s men at Ibrox at the weekend.
The Swede scored a classy fifth goal to bring down the curtain on the one-sided rout over the Govan outfit.
And Lustig told the well-beaten opponents they got off lightly because he thought Brendan Rodgers’ runaway champions might well have hit a record amount if they had taken more of their chances.
The defender said: “We scored five goals, but if we had been 100 per cent clinical it could have been closer to double figures.
“I think it was the most satisfying performance of the season in domestic terms.
“It’s up there with the 5-1 win at Parkhead. The way we played, the way we kept the ball and created chances, the way we defended, it all felt good.
“I don’t know if this proves the gap is getting bigger. There were two teams out there, but let’s just talk about our performance which was brilliant.
“They tried something new and they couldn’t touch us.
“They tried a different style of play from last week, but we proved that we are too good at the moment.”
Asked if he had any sympathy for an Ibrox side who were left devastated, Lustig replied: “Did we feel sorry for them? No, of course not.
“We faced a team with grown men, so it is not like we can feel sorry for them.”
The experienced international reckons this is just the beginning of something very good for the Hoops.
He added: “That’s why we work really hard. We have a young squad and a manager and staff who want to get better all the time.
“It is easy to think we will have an easy week now and have fun on the training ground.
“But it’s not like that. We do the same things, take care of our bodies and work a lot on tactics. That is why we are so good now.
“We stay humble and always have the respect of the opponent.
“It has been a long season and we have been brilliant so far.
“We work hard on the same things every week and don’t take anything for granted.
“If we keep doing that then we know it will be a fantastic end to the season.
“But there are still four weeks to go and we will not be taking our foot off the gas.”
