Of the 136 Scottish Cups, Celtic and Rangers have won the competition 73 times between them – Celtic 40 times and Rangers 33 times.

But remarkably Rangers have not lifted the trophy since 2009. And with Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side trailing Celtic by six points in the race for the Scottish Premiership, this could well be the last opportunity they have to save their season.

By contrast, Celtic won the Scottish Cup four times in a row between 2017 and 2020, before that run was ended by St Johnstone last year.

It promises to be a fascinating clash in front of a raucous crowd at Hampden Park. But who will come out on top?
