Rangers take on Celtic Reserves on Thursday night in the second Unite Scottish Cup semi final.
With the Celtic first team knocked out in the quarter final stage of the competition by Hibernian, it has been left up to their reserve side to carry the club in to the Scottish Cup Final. Bidding to be the first lower league team to make it to the final, the First Division Champions have the added incentive of eliminating Rangers in the process.
Having regularly played Rangers a couple of seasons ago when the 'Gers were also in the First Division, Celtic Reserves boss Gary Doctor has experience of the task facing his side. He said: "We haven't seen much of Rangers lately, but we do remember many of their players from when we met in the First Division, where the results were mixed. I have always felt you can think too much about the opposition, so we will try and concentrate on ourselves.
"We have had to play a lot of matches to get this far in the competition and to be honest our Scottish Cup performances have been a bonus. We are happy to be billed as the outsiders as we have been the favourites in every league match for the past year, so it's nice to have the pressure off a bit and see where the game takes us.
"None of our players have ever played in a senior Scottish Cup final before, so the excitement is there. But there is also experience too, as many have youth and senior league cup final games under their belt. Being a First Division side, the girls are thoroughly enjoying the attention the game is getting and I am sure they will give it their all on Thursday."
The match takes place on Thursday, indoors at Toryglen Football Centre. Kick off 6.30pm.
