THE Scottish Cup semi-final draw will be made immediately after Celtic’s quarter-final clash with Dundee United at Tannadice this evening.

The match between the Hoops and the Tayside outfit is scheduled for a 7.45pm kick-off and the ballot will then take place at the final whistle.

The action will be shown live by Premier Sports satellite channel.

The Parkhead men, who won four successive national competitions until the wheels came off in last season’s first trophyless campaign in 11 years, are hoping to go into the ballot where they could meet either of the Edinburgh duo of Hibs or Hearts.
