Old Firm set for Ibrox Cup showdown
Wednesday 12 January 2011
Rangers and Celtic will meet each other at Ibrox in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup. The Old Firm rivals were paired together in yesterday's draw at Hampden with the match due to be played on 5 or 6 February.
Celtic avoided a shock when they beat Berwick in the last round, while Rangers eased past Kilmarnock on Monday. Walter Smith's men will again have home advantage on their side but the memory of this month's Scottish Premier League defeat to Celtic at the same venue will still be fresh in the memory. Their meeting is the only clear tie at the moment, with replays or re-arranged fixtures yet to determine the rest of the games.
Meanwhile, Celtic manager Neil Lennon has received a six-match touchline ban after his dismissal against Hearts on 10 November, the Scottish Football Association confirmed.
