SCOTTISH CUP: CELTIC FOR IBROX?

0

CELTIC will almost certainly face Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox in the Scottish Cup fourth round.

Today’s draw paired them with either the Govan outfit or Highland League minnows Cove Rangers with the teams playing at 6.30pm this evening for the right to face the holders.

Celtic, of course, are going to extend their record-breaking sequence to a fifth successive triumph after beating Aberdeen (2-1), Motherwell (2-0), Hearts (2-1) and the Tynecastle side on penalty-kicks after a 3-3 extra-time draw on December 20 when the club sealed the quadruple treble.

The last time the Glasgow clubs met in the national competition was in the semi-final at Hampden on April 15, 2018 when the Hoops, then managed by Brendan Rodgers, ran amok, winning 4-0 with strikes from Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Moussa Dembele (pen) and Olivier Ntcham (pen).
