The Glasgow giants won the domestic treble during the 2016-17 campaign as well as last season, and the players will be determined to make it a ‘treble treble’ this time.

 

Hearts, though, will not be easy pushovers, as manager Craig Levein does have a strong team with some very good players.

This is how Hearts and Celtic will line up for the Scottish Cup final this afternoon:

Meanwhile, Celtic legend Paul McStay has mocked Rangers chairman Dave King for his previous comments regarding the Hoops.

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers chairman King has made claims that four of the last eight league titles that Celtic have won do not count as Rangers were not in the top division.

McStay told The Scottish Sun: “Celtic deserve everything they’ve got no matter who’s in the league. They are worthy winners, it doesn’t matter who’s there.

“The players adapted to the environment they are in and the teams they are playing against. They gave their all. They deserve to be where they are and nobody can say or do anything to take that away from them.”
