Redirect disabled pages?

How can I set up Cs-cart to redirect people who come to disable pages to my homepage? I currently have a few disabled pages on my site in between deciding to delete them permanently or not? Right now when people try to access them through searches, they go to the page but it gives a 404 error. I tried to redirect 404 errors to the homepage, but visitors aren't seeing, they are seeing the page and I think that is why the site doesn't recognize it as a 404 url and won't redirect.

I need some help.

I am running CS-CART: version 2.2.1 PROFESSIONAL

Put this in your .htaccess file AFTER RewriteBase /

RedirectPermanent /my-old-url.html /my-new-url.html

You can also do via your Control Panel
