The countdown is on to today’s massive Scottish Cup semi-final between Celtic and Rangers at Hampden Park.
Aberdeen await the winners in the final and both clubs are desperate to lift the trophy. For Celtic it’s the chance to secure a rare treble and go the entire domestic season unbeaten. For Rangers winning the competition would represent significant progress and give supporters what they’ve craved most over the last few season, major honours.
The teams have been announced and one man is causing excitement amongst Celtic supporters; Patrick Roberts.
The young winger has more often than not found himself on the bench this season, with the consistent James Forrest usually keeping him out of the first eleven.
However, the on loan Man City star now has the opportunity to impress in one of the biggest games in the season and fans certainly think he will make a big impact.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his inclusion…
Patrick Roberts starts!! ????
