CELTIC’S Scottish Cup fourth round game at Ibrox a week today may be switched.

The tie could be postponed to be played at a later date due to a clash with the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh who passed away yesterday at the age of 99.

Games in the UK face being rescheduled as a mark of respect.

The Scottish Football Association have stated there is the danger of a change and, hopefully, a decision on the tie will be made as soon as possible.

A statement from the governing body read: “In light of confirmation that the funeral of HRH Prince Philip will take place next Saturday at 3pm, we have entered dialogue with the relevant stakeholders with regard to Scottish Cup Fourth Round fixtures scheduled on that day.

“We will update participating clubs, supporters and partners in due course.”

The game against Steven Gerrard’s side is scheduled for a 4pmĀ kick-off in seven days’ time.

The holders warmed up for the encounter with their biggest win of the campaign with a 6-0 success over Livingston at Parkhead this afternoon.

Mohamed Elyounoussi fired in a double and there were singles from James Forrest, David Turnbull and Ryan Christie plus an own goal from Jack Fitzwater as the Hoops overtook the 5-0 victory over Ross County in Dingwall in September as the best scoring performance.
