Celtic will take all the beating in Scottish Cup

Champions on course to do the treble in Scotland again

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers
1 of 1

William Hill Scottish Cup & Scottish League Two
3pm Saturday

Celtic can make history by winning a double treble and retaining the William Hill Scottish Cup.

No team in Scotland have ever won successive trebles, but Brendan Rodgers' side look so far ahead of the rest that it's hard to see past them.

So far, Rodgers has hardly made a splash in the January transfer window, but there is still plenty of time and it's impossible to believe they won't spent big again.

This season, they have actually lost a game and don't seem quite as superior as they were last term, but they are still a country mile ahead of the rest and will go hell for leather to win the Cup too, with the Ladbrokes Premiership a certainty and the Betfred Cup already in the bag.

An alternative to them at a tasty price could be in-form Kilmarnock, who seem to be on the up with Steve Clarke in charge.

Few teams will want to face them in the form they are in and they are worth a small each-way bet.

In Saturday's Scottish action, Montrose should to pile on the misery for Clyde, who are dropping like a stone in Ladbrokes League Two.

The Bully Wee are in freefall, having failed to win a league game since September. They have drawn many games, but they are in serious danger of finishing bottom.

Montrose have regrouped since their 6-2 home thrashing by Peterhead and are set to be their only challengers for the title.

New signing Lewis Milne has netted two goals in as many matches and could add to that against a generous Clyde defence.

Inverness can stun a rusty Dundee side at Dens Park.

Neil McCann's side have had a two-week winter break and face an
in-form Caley Thistle, who look stronger every week.
