Wanyama keen to forget cup setback

Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama is eager to quickly erase the memory of the Hampden defeat to Kilmarnock, beginning with Sunday's Old Firm derby with Rangers.

Kilmarnock ended Celtic's treble tilt last Sunday with a 1-0 win in the final of the Scottish Communities League Cup, leaving Neil Lennon's side to focus on the Scottish Premier League and the William Hill Scottish Cup.

It appears only to be a matter of time before the Bhoys wrap up the SPL title - and it could happen this weekend if Motherwell drop points at Killie and Celtic beat Rangers on Sunday.

Then Celtic's focus will turn to the Scottish Cup, where they will meet either St Mirren or Hearts, who play in a quarter-final replay on Wednesday night, in the semi-final on April 15.

Wanyama told the Celtic View: "I've learned a lot from this (the loss to Kilmarnock). It was a very big game and a chance for me to win something. It was very important to me before the game and I was very disappointed at full-time when we lost. I don't want to feel like this again so I hope we will move on from this.

"This meant a lot to me personally. Every player wants to win trophies and I was very excited about the thought of possibly doing that. We have to step up now and concentrate on our next game.

"Hopefully we will be back to our best and can continue our run in the league. There's nothing we can do now. We just have to move on and put it out of our minds.

"We've all switched our minds to Sunday's game now and hopefully we can make up for the defeat against Rangers.''
