Celtic have announced ticketing details for the upcoming Scottish League Cup semi-final clash against Kilmarnock at Hampden on Saturday January 14th, 2023.

The deadline for purchase is Friday, December 2nd.

Celtic take on Derek McInnes’ side in the first semi-final of the weekend, with Rangers set to face Aberdeen a day later for a spot in the final.

If we make it through against Killie then we’ll play either of those teams on 26th February.

The tournament will be the earliest opportunity for Ange Postecoglou to win his third trophy since joining Celtic as manager, having already secured the League Cup and Scottish Premiership last term.

On current form, we’ll be regarded as red-hot favourites with Kilmarnock sitting 11th, Aberdeen struggling for form outside of their home city and Rangers in something of a crisis at this time.

As always though, there are no paper champions and silverware has to be earned. Hampden can be a tense venue for Celtic despite incredible success there over the last decade.

Backed by tens of thousands of supporters, with this allocation likely to sell-out, we’re in a great position to progress into another final and push for more success.

In other news, Celtic could add to Everton and Frank Lampard turmoil this weekend.
