For Ange Postecoglou, it represents a chance to win his first silverware since being appointed head coach in the summer, while Hibs will go into the match under the caretaker management of David Gray following the dismissal of Jack Ross less than a fortnight ago.

The Easter Road side will be looking to make the most of the occasion having last won the competition in 2007, while Celtic are aiming to get back into the winning habit after following up their quadruple treble with a trophy-less campaign last season.

The match will go ahead as planned in front of a 50,000 capacity crowd despite ongoing concerns over the spread of the Omicron variant, with all fans urged to take lateral flow tests before travelling to the national stadium.

Celtic are favourites despite being shorn of a number of their best attackers through injury, but Hibs will fancy their chances after their stunning semi-final win over Rangers last month, which included a memorable first-half Martin Boyle hat-trick.
