Celtic vs Rangers preview, team news, kick-off time as Old Firm meet in Scottish Cup semis

Celtic and Rangers meet again in another Old Firm this weekend, facing off in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

It comes two weeks after their last encounter, with Celtic winning 2-1 at Ibrox to take a key initiative in the Scottish Premiership title race.

However, Sunday’s match comes with an entirely different prospect – the chance to reach a Scottish Cup final on Saturday May 21, taking on Hearts.

Rangers and Celtic will meet in the Scottish Cup last four for the fourth time in six seasons on Sunday.There had previously been eight Old Firm encounters in the last four, with Celtic enjoying three high-scoring wins in the early years and Rangers winning in 1900 and 1960. There were three meetings in the 1990s with the Light Blues coming out on top each time.

Ahead of his side’s clash against Rangers, Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou says his team are excited for their upcoming match and that the fixture ‘should be a cracker’

Ange Postecoglou could start Kyogo Furuhashi after Giorgos Giakoumakis was all but ruled out.

Furuhashi made his comeback from a hamstring injury as a 74th-minute substitute in Celtic’s 7-0 win over St Johnstone last Saturday, after Giakoumakis went off early in the game with a minor injury in the same area.
