Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley predicts Rangers v Celtic scoreline

Rangers will lose 3-0 to Celtic, according to Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley.

Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley has told the New Balance Football Twitter account that he thinks Celtic will beat Rangers 3-0 in the Scottish Cup.

Ledley, 29, hit 30 goals in 157 games for Celtic having arrived from Cardiff City in the summer of 2010, before leaving for Palace in January 2014.

The midfielder, who will be playing for Wales at the European Championships in France this summer, has been discussing his career in a question and answer session with New Balance Football.

Unsurprisingly, the former Bhoys star was asked what he thinks will happen when Celtic meet Old Firm rivals Rangers at Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup next month.

Championship side Rangers smashed Dundee 4-0 last weekend, just a day before Celtic beat Morton 3-0, and the semi-final draw on Sunday pitted the two major Glasgow rivals against each other.

There may be over a month to go until the game, but Glasgow is buzzing with the prospect of the two sides meeting each other, especially given that Rangers have been superb this season, and are a far cry from the side which lost 2-0 to Celtic in the Scottish League Cup last season.

Ledley was asked what his score prediction for the game is, and with his allegiances firmly with Celtic, he unsurprisingly predicted a huge win for Ronny Deila's men, tipping Celtic to win the game 3-0 and advance in to the final of the Scottish Cup.
