Dare I say a few Celtic supporters will be nursing a hangover this morning and reflecting on a brilliant Trophy Day at Celtic Park and on the streets of Glasgow, but the excitement of the weekend hasn’t ended with that.

Celtic FC Women take on Rangers in a massive Women’s Scottish Cup final at Hampden – and it’s been given prime billing on a mainstream channel.

The 1:30 pm kick-off will be shown live on BBC One Scotland, with the fixture also available on the BBC iPlayer for those who can’t get to a television.

Remarkably, it’s the first time the two sides have met in the final of this competition, so history is being made. Celtic are holders of the trophy, having beat Glasgow City in an exciting final at Tynecastle last season.

On the way to this year’s final, the Ghirls have enjoyed wins over Falkirk, Boroughmuir Thistle and City.

Thousands are expected to attend at Hampden, with Celtic fans selling out a number of blocks in the north stand, with bought seats starting to extend around the curve towards the traditional Celtic end.

Celtic FC Women boss Fran Alonso said of the occasion: “We are playing for a trophy in front of our amazing fans at Hampden Park and we’re looking forward to it.

“We need to use the disappointment and hurt from the league and transfer it into aggression, quality and passion. We want to put in a performance that our fans are proud of and hopefully we can bring another trophy to Paradise.”

Hopefully, the team can add to a joyful weekend and to the haul of trophies won by the club at different levels across this season.
