The Hoops are defending the Scottish Cup that they won in memorable fashion last season, Tom Rogic’s injury time winner securing a first domestic treble in 16 years.
Brendan Rodgers’ side booked their place in the last eight of the cup following a rather unconvincing 3-2 win over Partick Thistle.
The game was most notable for James Forrest’s first hat-trick for the Bhoys, which took his goal tally for the season to 17, and the dreadful performance of centre-back Jozo Simunovic, who was arguably at fault for both goals scored by Thistle.
The Hoops will have to put any thoughts of the cup on the back burner for now though, as they prepare to face Zenit in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie.
