Celtic have confirmed that the Scottish Cup tie against St Mirren will take place on Saturday 11 February at 17.30 [@CelticFC].
In years gone by, the late Saturday kick-off has became a real favourite of the Hoops support who most recently enjoyed a day out at Hampden in the Viaplay Cup semi final at the same time.

Many would prefer the late Saturday kick-off instead of the early Saturday or Sunday afternoon which was the case in the previous round even though that match was well attended unlike cup ties in previous years.
Celtic booked their place in the fifth round of the Cup after defeating Greenock Morton 5-0 as goals came from Kyogo Furuhashi, Aaron Mooy and David Turnbull.
Ange Postecoglou’s team are still fighting on all fronts this season and will be hoping to put on a show in front of the home support once again.
Both sides have already met twice this season and so far it’s honours even as they have won one game apiece.
St Mirren ended Celtic’s unbeaten start to the season after a 2-0 win in Paisley back in September but Postecoglou’s side got some revenge back as they tore the Buddies apart just over a week ago at Celtic Park in a 4-0 win.
