Ryan Christie Takes on Flatmate & Albion Rovers Forward Calum Ferguson at FIFA Ahead of Sunday’s Clash

Celtic return to action this Sunday as they take on Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup, with the Hoops entering the final hurdle of their treble attempt.

The Hoops have already lifted the League Cup, with a 3-0 win over Aberdeen back in November, and with a 19-point lead over second placed Rangers have all but wrapped up the league title.

That means a Scottish Cup is all that stands in the way of Brendan Rodgers and a famous treble – a feat only accomplished by Martin O’Neill and Jock Stein.

If Albion Rovers are to cause an upset, they will be the first team in Scotland to inflict defeat on Celtic this season with the Parkhead club only three games away from beating the Lisbon Lions’ 50-year-old undefeated record.

But the match has an added spice with flatmates Ryan Christie and Calum Ferguson going head to head.

Christie and Ferguson were teammates at Inverness and ahead of their showdown on Sunday, took each other on at a game of FIFA with the Celtic midfielder earning the upper hand.

Can Albion Rovers cause an upset on Sunday or is another simple victory for Celtic on the horizon?
