Jacko’s Scottish Football Preview

Scotland correspondent Jack Milner previews this weekend’s Scottish football action.

The League Cup takes centre stage this weekend with Celtic travelling to Hibernian in the first of two massive semi-finals. The Hoops are 4/7 with BetVictor to maintain their stranglehold of Scottish football and win back-to-back League Cups however, Rangers have arguably the easier tie of the two and are 1/2 when hosting Motherwell at Ibrox and 7/2 to be lifting silverware aloft at Hampden in the spring.

Celtic 4/7

Rangers 3/1

Hibernian 8/1

Motherwell 16/1

For those that love a good fairytale then Motherwell are 16/1 outsiders of four to successfully run the gauntlet; presumably beating Rangers at Ibrox and Celtic at Hampden to give The Steelmen a first League Cup success since 1951! That looks unlikely however, with Stephen Robinson’s side 11/2 with BetVictor to cause an upset at The Gers and 10/3 to reach the final.

The recent international break seems to have done Rangers the power of good, with Pedro Caixhina’s side bouncing back from the 2-0 defeat in the Old Firm derby by back-to-back wins in the to-flight thereafter. Should the Gers show the same ruthlessness demonstrated in the recent 4-1 and 3-0 victories over the Hamilton Accies and St Johnston they will be very hard to beat and they look a fair price at 6/5 with BetVictor in the double-result market.

Celtic are Even Money in the same market this afternoon but aren’t assured of brushing aside a good Hibernian side that continue to impress at Easter Road. Hibees boss Neil Lennon continues to be linked with a move away from the Edinburgh outfit however, he remains adamant his eyes lay solely on Hibernian and BetVictor are 13/2 for them to beat Celtic this afternoon and 9/2 to reach the League Cup final.

Brendan Rodgers was likewise rumoured to be at the top of Leicester City’s shortlist to replace the sacked Craig Shakespeare and 12/1 with BetVictor to swap Parkhead for The King Power. I expect him to stay at Celtic’s helm for a long time and guide The Hoops to yet another cup final; Celtic 15/8 with BetVictor to win and both teams to score at Easter Road and 8/1 to win by the 2-1 correct score.
