Some Glasgow Rangers fans have been left buzzing over some news involving the Premier Sports Cup.
As per the official Twitter page of the Ibrox faithful, Steven Gerrard’s team will now play Hibernian in the semi-final for a place in the final of the competition.
The tie will be played on the weekend of November 20th-21st, and it means that they avoid their bitter rivals Celtic until the final, should they both end up going through.
Will Gerrard stay at Rangers?
The Hoops will now face St. Johnstone in what promises to be two very interesting set of fixtures.
Of course, the one monkey on Gerrard’s back at the moment is that he has not yet a Scottish Cup while managing the Gers, and he may be thinking that avoiding Celtic until the final may give him his best chance of winning this time around.

“Nice, that’ll do me”
