The last Celtic match he refereed came earlier in this campaign as Brendan Rodgers’ side drew 0-0 with St Mirren.

Dallas produced a red card for midfielder Olivier Ntcham on that evening, a decision which irked the Celtic boss.

His last match involving Aberdeen saw Derek McInnes’ side earn a 1-1 draw at Easter Road. Like Rodgers, the Dons manager wasn’t happy with the official, whom he believed miss a blatant penalty in the first half.

His assistants at Hampden Park will be Graeme Stewart and Frank Connor, while Nick Walsh is the fourth official.
