CELTIC have been drawn against Sevco Rangers in the semi-final of the League Cup for the second time in three years.

They will play the Ibrox outfit at Hampden on the weekend of October 22/23 with a date and kick-off yet to be finalised.

The Hoops, with Ronny Deila in charge, overcame their Glasgow rivals the last time they met with predictable ease 2-0 with Leigh Griffiths and Kris Commons scoring the first-half goals.

Celtic went on to beat Dundee United 2-0 in the Final to hand the Norwegian the first of his three trophies as Parkhead boss in his two-year reign.

The game comes quickly on the heels of Brendan Rodgers’ side’s 5-1 romp in the Premiership in the east end of Glasgow this season.

Moussa Dembele thumped in a perfect hat-trick while Scott Sinclair and Stuart Armstrong added the others in a one-sided performance that left the Govan side reeling.

Now Mark Warburton’s men will attempt to prevent Rodgers from guiding his team to the Final and, hopefully, his first piece of silverware as Celtic manager.

A goal in the fading moments by substitute Adam Rooney gave Aberdeen a 1-0 win over St Johnstone to claim the last place in the semi-finals where they will meet Morton.

The Greenock side, managed by ex-Celt Jim Duffy, got their spot in the last four by virtue of their 2-1 victory over Dundee United at Cappielow on Tuesday night.
