Celtic Fans Don’t Seem Surprised About Bobby Madden Getting Rangers Semi

Celtic Fans Don’t Seem Surprised About Bobby Madden Getting Rangers Semi

Some Celtic fans aren’t surprised Bobby Madden will referee their Scottish Cup semi-final with Rangers.

The two Glasgow rivals go head to head at Hampden next weekend for a place in May’s showpiece game – and the SFA have today announced the officials for the match.

While Kevin Clancy will take on the other semi between Aberdeen and Motherwell, Madden will be in charge of Sunday’s match between Celtic and Rangers.

And, for some reason, a lot of Hoops supporters aren’t surprised about that.

They took to Twitter after the appointment was revealed:

And it’ll no doubt go on until the game kicks off at the national stadium next weekend.

Celtic and Rangers are meeting just a month after their hugely entertaining 3-2 game at Ibrox, which saw a 10-man Celts team win courtesy of an Odsonne Edouard goal.

Now, though, Graeme Murty’s men will be looking for revenge in a game that is pivotal to Celtic’s treble push.

They’ve already won the Betfred Cup and are close to securing the title so a win against Rangers would set them up nicely for the historic feat of back-to-back trebles.
