Celtic’s bid for an unprecedented second consecutive domestic treble is set to be decided by the Hoops’ upcoming fixtures against Rangers.

The Bhoys take on their old rivals in a vital league clash next Sunday, knowing that a victory will move them nine points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, with a game in hand.

The teams will then meet in the Scottish Cup semi-final for the third year running, in a match most likely to be played on the 16th of April.

Brendan Rodgers will want to put down a marker for the semi-final when they head to Ibrox, and they will also want three points which could all but clinch the league title.

By the time the semi-final takes place, the Bhoys could be boosted by the return from injury for the likes of Stuart Armstrong and Craig Gordon, and Patrick Roberts, who has played excellently in the Old Firm derbies in his time at the club, has just returned to the first-team squad.
