Oddly enough, the Scottish Cup could make-or-break Celtic’s season…

Ahead of their trip to Albion Rovers on Sunday, the Celtic fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern have been waxing poetic about the idea of adding the Scottish Cup to their trophy haul. 

With the League Cup in the bag already and the Bhoys sitting ridiculously clear in the league, the Hoops will fancy their chances of making it a clean sweep on domestic honours in Scotland. However, it’ll be no mean feat.

Cup competitions last year went some way into proving there remains a competitiveness within Scottish football, with the likes of Hibernian and Ross County reaching finals, as well as Rangers at Celtic’s expense. Which is why winning the Scottish Cup could be the most important aspect of Brendan Rodges’ first season in Glasgow.

While we can wax poetic about their storming of the league, not taking Hibs’ crown off them would be a serious blotch on their copybook after such a strong campaign. Despite the dominance of both the Bhoys and the Gers strewn across the history of Scottish football, it’s very rare to see a side win all three domestic competitions.

As Rodgers continues to build at Parkhead, the importance securing as much silverware as humanly possible simply cannot be understated and only club legends Jock Stein and Martin O’Neill have overseen trebles.

The former Liverpool chief has a great chance to put himself in some company, though cannot take his foot off the gas in this competition.
