Scottish Cup fixture details plus The Celtic Star’s fan media duties for the Rangers game

Celtic’s Fifth Round Scottish Cup tie against St Mirren at Celtic Park will take place on Saturday 11 February with a later kick-off time of 5.30pm to accommodate the live broadcast on viaplay.

Full details of the four Scottish Cup matches that will all be shown live on television have been released today by the Scottish FA. First up is Hamilton v Hearts on Friday 10 February which will be broadcast on BBC Scotland.

Then the next day, Saturday 11 February it’s the subscription broadcaster’s turn and they opt for Celtic v St Mirren as one of their two choices (they get first pick). Then predictably enough on Sunday 12 February viaplay are showing theRangers v Partick Thistle before the most interesting tie (outside Celtic’s) on Monday 13 February when Aberdeen’s giant killers Darrel take on Falkirk and that’s live on BBC Scotland.

The next round of dates on the Celtic fan media rota have also been announced with The Celtic Star being allocated the media conferences with Ange Postecoglou and a Celtic player ahead of this Scottish Cup Fifth Round match against St Mirren and also the post-match media conference after the game against theRangers at Celtic Park on 8 April. That should be fun!
