Confirmed: Scottish Cup Glasgow Derby for Celtic

CELTIC will play Partick Thistle in the Fourth Road of the William Hill Scottish Cup.

The game will be played at Firhill and sets up a Glasgow Derby between the Scottish Champions and the Championship side.

It could prove to be a tough draw for the holders as Ian McCall hopes to have drilled his sides better than when the pair met in the Betfred Cup in September, with Celtic strolling to a 5-0 victory.

The Fourth Road ties will be played on the weekend of the 18/19th of January, after the Celts return from Dubai.

Neil Lennon’s team retained the trophy with a 2-1 victory over Hearts at Hampden in May, now their journey to Hampden begins again.

A brace from Odsonne Edouard saw Celtic come back from a goal down versus the Tynecastle outfit.

Celtic have won the Scottish Cup a record 39 times, including three-in-a-row since 2017.

A good draw and fortunately, a draw that doesn’t involve a great deal of travel!
