It's Saints against Celtic - again!
Published : 03 Feb 2013 18:02:14
Having seen off Celtic in the League Cup semi-finals last week, Saints will face them again in the Scottish Cup after the two sides were paired together in today's quarter-final draw.
There were plenty of other favourable ties, with the likes of Dundee, Falkirk and Hamilton all through to the last eight. However, typically we were drawn against Celtic, who will be fired up for revenge after last week's shock at Hampden.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon had said before the draw he wanted to get us, presumably so he can inflict some payback, and he has got his wish. The match will be played at Greenhill Road on the first weekend in March and may well end up being on TV which, if nothing else, should get us some more cash.
It will unquestionably be difficult - beating one of the Old Firm once in a season is hard enough, let alone doing it twice in little over the space of a month. However, we have already shown we can do it, we'll have home advantage and we'll be the underdogs. The dream of a cup double is still alive!
