Old Firm Day: Rangers and Celtic Fans Are Buzzing Ahead of Scottish Cup Clash

The day that Old Firm fans have been waiting for is finally here.

Rangers and Celtic will go ahead this afternoon in their Scottish Cup semi-final tie at Hampden, with the winner going on to meet Hibs in next month’s final.

The match is only the second meeting between the two sides in four years after the Ibrox club’s financial meltdown in 2012.

Celtic won the previous meeting in a comfortable 2-0 win in the League Cup semi-final last season.

Today’s derby will see Gers boss Mark Warburton get his first taste of Scotland’s biggest fixture.

The Light Blues go into the match fresh off the back of winning the Scottish Championship title and the Petrofac Training Cup.

Meanwhile four-in-a-row top flight champs Celtic are closing in on another title of their own.

The mouthwatering fixture has got fans from both sides buzzing already on social media this morning as many get ready to watch the match at home, in pubs and clubs and at the national stadium.

Then again, there are some who don’t seem to share the same level of enthusiasm about the match.
