By Amir Mir
Graham Roberts has wished Tottenham and Rangers “good luck” ahead of their crucial cup matches over the weekend.
English Premier League side Spurs will take on Chelsea on Saturday evening with the two teams fighting for a place in the FA Cup final.
The London duo will meet at Wembley, the third time they will clash this term, with both teams picking up a victory each.
In Scotland, the Old Firm duo will contest the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon in what is expected to be a fiery encounter.
Both Rangers and Celtic have played each other on four occasions during this campaign, with the last meeting resulting in the Gers snatching a late draw at Parkhead.

Gers manager Pedro Caixinha will be hoping his team can take inspiration from their draw against Brendan Rodgers team last time out.
However, they will be up against a side that is yet to be beaten on the Scottish domestic during this campaign as they are on course to win the treble.
By contrast, Tottenham are chasing their maiden PL title and also hoping to end their near decade run without a major trophy.
