Celtic devoured Hibs to notch their 30th consecutive win in cup competition.
But Ryan Christie insists the Hoops are still hungry for honours.
They booked their place in the Betfred Cup final with a dominant display against the Hibees.
It ensured they remain unbeaten in domestic cups since April 2016.
And Christie revealed the entire Bhoys squad is determined to keep the run going.
“We’re delighted to reach another final, first and foremost, but we’re also really happy with the performance as well,” he said. “We’re all pleased with where our game’s at right now.
“That’s 30 cup wins in a row, which is testament to our character and composure when it comes to these big games at Hampden.
“Over the last few years we’ve managed to churn out positive results and long may it continue.
“Every single person in that changing room is desperate to win every competition we’re in. That’s where the hunger comes from.
“This tournament comes around quickly in the season and we want silverware before Christmas.
“To do that you need to turn up on days like this and credit to the boys, we did that.”
Celtic have been turning up when it matters for years now.
But while Christie is relatively new to the demands of being a Parkhead hero, he is already riled by the suggestion that Rangers are catching them up.
“It’s pretty relentless but you have to get used to that or you probably won’t survive at this club,” he said.
“Psychologically, it’s massive to get the first trophy of the season. If we can secure it, it will push us on for the rest of the season.
“A lot has been said about the increased competition this season. But we’re desperate to concentrate on ourselves and take home more trophies.
“When you hear people saying Rangers are getting closer and the gap’s getting smaller, it fires us up.
“We’ll always welcome the competition. If everyone else around us is getting better, that will only make us better as well.”
