The results of the two previous semi-finals between the sides have been a mixed bag for the Hoops, with Rangers winning 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in 2016 and the Bhoys easing to a 2-0 victory last season thanks to goals from Callum McGregor and Scott Sinclair.

The semi-final will be the second of three Old Firm derbies before the end of the season, with the teams meeting in  vital league match at Ibrox next week, with another league game at Celtic Park scheduled for after the SPFL league split.

As has so often been the case, the Hoops will have to overcome their biggest rivals if they are to claim one of the biggest prizes in Scottish football, which takes on even bigger significance this season as the Hoops’ hope of a second consecutive domestic treble will be at stake.
