Celtic are due to take on lower league side Clyde in the Scottish Cup Fifth Round next month, after Sunday’s draw.

Neil Lennon and his Bhoys progressed against Partick Thistle on Saturday and will now play the Scottish League One side away from home at Broadwood.

The tie is due to be played on the weekend of February 8th, with exact fixture details yet to be published.

It’s part of an upcoming gauntlet of matches that sees the cup holders and Scottish champions play far more on the road than at Celtic Park.

We’ll only play at home once in our next six matches, having also just played at Firhill.

We, of course, have a history with Clyde in the competition too, having suffered a huge cup shock back in 2006 when Gordon Strachan was manager, Roy Keane made his debut and a character called Du Wei lined up in defence.

Craig Bryson and Eddie Malone scored to send The Bully Wee through in January of that year, with a Maciej Zurawski goal not enough to stop a 2-1 defeat.

However, Lennon will know all about the professionalism needed this time around, having played in the midfield on that dark day.

There can be no complacency.

Plenty of fans have taken the tie in good humour, reminiscing about Du Wei and Keane with tongues firmly in cheek.

Hopefully, the upcoming fixture won’t be a point of amusement this time around.
