The Scottish Cup tie is set to be a thrilling encounter, with a bit of needle between the teams from Wednesday night and the last match in Edinburgh finishing with seven goals between the sides.

Celtic left Wednesday’s match with all three points, coming from behind to win 3-1. It wasn’t their best performance, with the rustiness of some players showing, but the Hoops had the quality, in the end, to see out the match.

Heading into the Scottish Cup quarter-final, here’s everything you need to know:

Where and When?

Celtic travel to the capital for a 12.15 kick-off on Saturday.

Celtic should have Greg Taylor back for the match, but Daizen Maeda is a doubt, with Ange Postecogliu admitting it might be too short a turnaround for the Japanese winger. Ange Postecoglou should be able to provide more information in his pre-match press conference on Friday.
