What channel is Celtic v Rangers on? Scottish Cup semi-final TV details, live stream, kick-off time

Celtic and Rangers go head-to-head at Hampden Park on Sunday for a place in the Scottish Cup final.

The meeting comes just two weeks after Celtic inflicted a 2-1 defeat on their Glasgow rivals at Ibrox to take a big step towards securing the Premiership title as they target a historic treble in Ange Postecoglou’s first season in charge.

For Rangers, this is just one of two major semi-finals on the horizon after Thursday’s win over Braga saw them progress into the last four of the Europa League where they will meet RB Leipzig in a fortnight’s time.

The prospect of reaching a European final is an exciting one for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men, nonetheless, they will be determined to prevent Celtic from collecting a domestic clean sweep with a victory at Hampden on Sunday.

The Scottish Cup semi-final has become a regular meeting place for Glasgow’s big two. This weekend’s match-up will mark the fourth Hampden semi-final in six years. The most recent, in 2018, saw Celtic hand out a 4-0 thumping, having strolled to a 2-0 win 12 months earlier en route to an unbeaten domestic treble. Six years ago the spoils went to a Rangers side fresh from winning the Championship, Mark Warburton’s side prevailing on penalties after a 2-2 draw.
