Celtic FC Women drawn against Ibrox rivals in Sky Sports Cup semi-final

Glasgow Derby New Year semi-final against theRangers lie in wait for Celtic FC Women…

Celtic FC Women have been drawn to face current holders theRangers in the semi finals of the Sky Sports cup Which will be played on Sunday 21 January.

Fran Alonso’s side exited in the quarter final stage last year losing to Spartans on penalties. This year they will want to bring the cup that they won the previous season back to Paradise  and to achieve that goal  they Ghirls will have to overcome theRangers and then either Hibs or Partick Thistle in the final to lift the trophy.

This Celtic side is of course more than capable of doing just that and will be out for revenge after suffering defeat to their Glasgow rivals in the league just a few weeks ago.

Fran Alonso’s side still in contention for the league title and could leapfrog theRangers this weekend as they are away to Glasgow City while later on Sunday afternoon Celtic play Hamilton at New Douglas Park.  And of course the Hoops will also be desperate to retain the Scottish Cup with a third consecutive win in a tournament where the Ghirls beat Glasgow City then theRangers in the two previous finals.

Beating theRangers and getting to the Sky Sports final in March would be a good confidence booster and set the side up for a tilt at winning a treble. What an achievement that would be and one that is well within reach for this Celtic team.

It will be tough of course, but it’s achievable and every single Celtic supporter will be roaring the woman on in January as they bid to make the final. Let’s make sure that there is a huge Celtic support at this game.
