Scottish Cup Winner: Punters backing ‘Celtic to clinch further domestic success’



There were very few upsets in the Scottish Cup fifth round this weekend, with Rangers and Celtic both easing through to the next stage of the competition.

The Gers eased past fellow Premiership side Hamilton 4-1. Goals from Joe Aribo, Alfredo Morelos and a double from Scott Arfield secured a spot in the next round for Steven Gerrard’s side.

The Bhoys, meanwhile, defeated League One side Clyde. They won 3-0 thanks to efforts from Olivier Ntcham, Scott Brown and Vakoun Issouf Bayo.

Elsewhere, Hearts and Hibernian both secured victories against lower league opposition. And St Johnstone and Inverness beat Ayr and Livingston respectively.

There will, however, be two replays played in the coming weeks as Aberdeen drew with Kilmarnock and St Mirren drew with Motherwell.

Sunday’s sixth round draw certainly threw up some interesting ties, but who will go on to win the entire competition?

Defending champions Celtic will take on St Johnstone as they seek a fourth consecutive trophy. They’ve won the competition a record 39 times.

Neil Lennon’s side are currently 6/5 to lift the trophy once again, with Tommy Wright’s men available at 40/1.

Rangers are Celtic’s rivals with 33 wins. But they haven’t won the competition since 2009, and now face a tricky test against Hearts in round six.

Gerrard’s men are available at 15/8 to lift the trophy this time around. Hearts meanwhile are currently 20/1 to go all the way.

Inverness are the only non-Premiership side left, and they face a trip to Easter Road to take on Hibs. The championship team won the competition in 2015 and reached the semi-final stage last year.

They have been given odds of 40/1 to win the tournament, with Hibs currently 14/1.

The final meeting sees either St Mirren or Motherwell host Aberdeen or Kilmarnock. St Mirren are currently 66/1 to progress through that encounter and go on to lift the trophy. And Motherwell are available at 20/1 to clinch success, having lost to Celtic in the final two years ago.

Aberdeen are available at 12/1 to secure their eighth title, with Kilmarnock currently 25/1 to lift the famous trophy for a fourth time.

The sixth round ties will be played at the end of this month, with Celtic playing St Johnstone in early March due to their Europa League commitments.

The semi-finals are scheduled for mid-April. And Hampden Park will then host the final on Saturday 9th May.
