CELTIC will face Neil Lennon’s Hibs in the Betfred League Cup semi-final after tonight’s draw.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will defend their trophy against their former gaffer at Hampden next month.

The Hoops cemented their place in the semis with a solid 4-0 win at Dundee last night while the Edinburgh men struggled to overcome Championship side Livingston 3-2 at Easter Road where former Celt Anthony Stokes claimed the winner with a late penalty-kick.

In the other tie, Sevco Rangers, who needed extra-time to beat Partick Thistle 3-1 on Tuesday night, will take on Motherwell.

The Fir Park side booked the final spot in the last four tonight when they routed Aberdeen 3-0.

It turned out to be a nightmare evening for the Dons’ normally reliable keeper Joe Lewis who blundered twice in the first-half to gift Well a two-goal interval lead.

The shotstopper fumbled an overhead-kick from Louis Moult into his net for the opener.

And he misjudged a header from Peter Hartley that squirmed under his body for the crucial second goal.

His misery was complete five minutes from time when Moult thundered an angled drive past him for the goal that will take the Lanarkshire outfit back to Hampden for a semi-final for the first time since 2011.  

The semi-final ties are due on the weekend of October 21/22.
