CALLUM McGREGOR makes his first start since late February after getting the nod from Brendan Rodgers to face Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden this afternoon.

The Hoops gaffer brought the guessing game about his captain’s fitness to a halt when he named his line-up.

Tomoki Iwata drops to the stand-by squad while Liam Scales comes back to partner Cameron Carter-Vickers in central defence.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; Hatate, McGregor, O’Riley; Kuhn, Kyogo, Yang. Subs: Bain, Palma, Idah, Nawrocki, Iwata, Bernardo, Kelly, Forrest and Ralston.

Earlier today, we asked you how much you could remember about recent Scottish Cup semi-finals concerning Celtic in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz to test your knowledge.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.

PICK IT OUT…Filipe Jota leaves Ibrox keeper Allan McGregor helpless as he nods in the Scottish Cup semi-final winner last season. A dejected Ben Davies looks on. (See Questions 4 and 5).


1: Brendan Rodgers won his first Scottish Cup when Celtic beat today’s opponents Aberdeen in the 2016/17 Final. Who did they beat in the semi?
