Champions Celtic unlikely to humiliate Morton

William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final
Sky Sports Football, 12.30pm Saturday

Morton have been rated like they are a team from Greenland, not Greenock, by bookmakers and look a great bet to cover a generous handicap in this lunchtime fixture at Celtic.

Yes, Jim Duffy's side are away at the champions who are going for back-to-back trebles, but the Hoops haven't been close to their best recently and Brendan Rodgers could rest a couple of players.


Aberdeen v Kilmarnock


Morton should comfortably make a playoff spot in the Ladbrokes Championship and Duffy always has his team organised so they rarely get thrashed by anyone.

Even if they lose, they are likely to give a decent account of themselves and it's far from impossible that they will score.

Recommendation
Morton +3 on handicap
2pts 5-4 Coral
