You don’t need to give Celtic supporters an excuse for a party, so there was delight when the club announced the date and time for the Premier Sports Cup semi-final against St Johnstone.

Naturally, the reaction has been uniformly positive.

While Celtic have been on patchy form, the club have been more than competent in the Premier Sports Cup thus far. Overcoming Hearts and Raith Rovers to get to this point, last year’s Cup winners lie in wait at Hampden.

It’s a great opportunity for Ange Postecoglou. While the Bhoys boss has stressed the need for patience, he’ll still be desperate to kick the winning culture at Celtic back into gear. A semi-final win at Hampden would do just that.

For the players, especially the new ones, these are also chances to become part of a victorious squad.

Playing at Hampden in front of a raucous Celtic support has brought the best out of plenty Hoops greats before.

As for the fans? Well, it’s an opportunity for a great Saturday out.

Suffice it to say, supporters will be right up for this one.
