Swiftly after collecting their sixth consecutive Scottish Premiership title last weekend, Celtic have been installed as firm favourites to add the Scottish Cup to their trophy cabinet this season.
However, Brendan Rodgers’ men will have to beat semi-final opponents Rangers in a much-anticipated Old Derby encounter at Hampden Park later this month if they’re to do so.
Celtic are currently priced at 4/11 (1.36) to defeat their Glasgow rivals and 4/9 (1.44) to win the entire competition, while their Old Derby foes are a massive 7/1 (8.00) to win their semi-final meeting and advance to the competition’s final.
Meanwhile, reigning Scottish Cup champions Hibernian aren’t fancied to defend their crown and enter the last four as 5/2 (3.50) underdogs to beat high-flying Aberdeen, who are listed at 4/1 (5.00) to take this year’s crown.
