Celtic midfielder makes an honest comment about Rangers tie

Ibrox outfit Rangers will take on Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup next month.

Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he and his teammates are thinking about the game against Rangers already.

The Scottish Premiership giants and Rangers will face each other in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow next week.

The game is still a few weeks away, but it seems that the Celtic players are already looking forward to the tie.

“It would be amazing to be involved in that game,” McGregor told The Glasgow Evening Times. “Last season I was with the squad at Hampden for the League Cup semi-final against Rangers but I wasn’t involved in it.

“To get the chance to be part of it is on the minds of everyone in the team just now but the only way to be in there with a chance is to keep doing it on the pitch."

Celtic and Rangers are the two biggest clubs in Scotland, and next month’s tie promises to be a feisty affair.

The Bhoys may be in the Scottish Premiership at the moment, but they will be given a run for their money from Rangers.

The Gers are running away with the Scottish Championship title, and they do have a squad that can win against Celtic in an one-off game.

Rangers are set to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season, and the match against the Hoops will be a chance for Mark Warburton’s side to show that they are ready for the Scottish top flight.
