Celtic v Aberdeen: Referees confirmed for Cup Semi Final

Celtic face Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Semi Final this weekend as Brendan Rodgers’ side look to book their place in the showpiece final. Celtic beat St Mirren 3-0 at the weekend and will now be focused on their trip to Hampden.

The SFA have confirmed their refereeing appointments for the clash with Don Robertson taking the whistle. The experienced ref will be assisted by Graeme Stewart and Steven Traynor with David Dickinson acting as Fourth Official.

Meanwhile, at Clydesdale House, Greg Aitken is on VAR with Andrew McWilliam assisting.

Robertson was the referee in Celtic’s controversial defeat at Tynecastle, where John Beaton directed him to send off Yang and award a penalty for a handball against Iwata. Hopefully, a better referring performance is to come from the officials than at Tynecastle that day.

Celtic have already beaten Buckie Thistle, St Mirren and Livingston to reach this stage and will look to put managerless Aberdeen to the sword. Brendan’s side will be looking to set up a Cup Final against either Hearts or Rangers as well as targeting a league title.
