Ibrox Trip for Celtic Loan Star

FALKIRK are into the quarter final of the Scottish Cup after beating Cove Rangers 3-1 away from home in the 5th round.

Their reward is a trip to Ibrox to play The Rangers with a trip to Hampden awaiting the winner.

Paul Hartley’s men are sitting 8th in the Championship table with no chance of promotion or relegation – this means they have a lot of focus on their Scottish Cup hopes.

One man who will be hoping to help Falkirk knock The Rangers out of the tournament will be Celtic Goalkeeper Conor Hazard, with the young goalkeeper taking over the number one spot since going to Falkirk on-loan.

The keeper, who Rodgers put faith in by handing him a new deal last year will most likely be the man between the stick at the start of march as Falkirk looks to cause the upset.

Conor was loaned out just before Craig Gordon’s injury, had it happened before the move was finalised, Celtic would have kept the youngster as back up to Dorus de Vries.

The 19-year-old now has a big platform to show what he can do and dump Celtic’s Glasgow rivals out of the competition.

For Celtic, they will host Greenock Morton for a place in the semi final. Celtic are obviously heavy favourites in that game.
