Celtic’s Scottish Cup Date Confirmed

Celtic’s trip to play St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup Quarter Final has been confirmed as a 3pm kickoff on Sunday, 1 March – St David’s Day.

Celtic have already defeated Partick Thistle and Clyde to make it to this stage and a win over Tommy Wright’s men is all between them and yet another appearance at Hampden for the semi-final.

At the end of January, Celtic stormed to a comprehensive 3-0 win over the Saints at McDiarmid Park and Neil Lennon will be hoping for more of the same when the sides meet at the start of March.

It is unclear whether Celtic fans will be given three stands, although one would assume this would be case given the reasons that Saints gave in their decision to increase the away allocation in January; however, those that are unable to make the game will be able to watch it on Premier Sports after the game was selected for coverage.

Celtic have been in blistering form since coming back from the winter break in Dubai and have extended their lead to ten points at the top of the Premiership table. Neil Lennon will be hoping his team can continue their domestic dominance with a win in Perth.

Before that Celtic travel to Aberdeen on Sunday (16 February) for the midday kick-off and then it’s on to Copenhagen on Thursday (20 February) for the round of 32 Europa League first leg. Kick-off is 17.55pm.

After Copenhagen Celtic welcome’s Kilmarnock in the Premiership on Sunday 23 February (3pm) then it’s the return leg against Copenhagen at Celtic Park under the disco lights on Thursday 27 February – which has an 8pm kick-off.

And then it’s up to McDiarmid Park on Scottish Cup duty as we reach St David’s Day, Sunday 1 March.
