What channel is Celtic v Morton on? Kick-off time, TV details, recalling the shock of 2013

Celtic have good reason not to take Morton lightly in Saturday’s Scottish Cup fourth round tie.

They need only look back to September 2013 when Dougie Imrie’s dramatic extra-time penalty gave the Greenock side a shock 1-0 win in the Scottish League Cup third-round at Parkhead.

Imrie is now in charge of Morton, who are fifth in the cinch Championship and pushing for the promotion play-offs – a far cry from the Cappielow side of 10 years ago who, despite their cup heroics in Glasgow's east end, went on suffer relegation to the third tier.

Celtic, while league title winners under Neil Lennon that season, are also a different animal these days under Ange Postecoglou with an imperious domestic record since the Australian took over the club in the summer of 2021, including not a single defeat at home.

Morton will look to make a good account of themselves while enjoying the exposure and payday that comes with a plum draw, but it would be an even bigger upset than last time if Celtic were not to progress to the last 16, and with a fair degree of comfort.
