Celtic 3 Raith Rovers 0 LIVE score as David Turnbull adds the third goal in the Premier Sports Cup clash


It’s a huge night for Ange Postecoglou as he looks to book his first trip to Hampden as Celtic boss.

The Australian’s side welcome underdogs Raith Rovers and will be confident of seeing off the Championship side at home to secure a semi-final spot.

John McGlynn takes the Kirkcaldy side to Glasgow’s east end with no pressure, and having sent Aberdeen out of the Premier Sports Cup in the previous round will fancy another scalp.

For the hosts nothing but a win will do against lower league opposition. They will be desperate to bounce back from a disappointing Premiership loss against Livingston at the weekend.

The away record of Postecoglou has been a main talking point, but now they are back on home turf a convincing win will be the hope for supporters against the Fife men.

A trophyless season last term only adds to the pressure on the manager going into the clash.

He will still be without the likes of Kyogo Furuhashi, James Forrest and Callum McGregor as Greek striker Giorgos Giakoumakis is in line to make his Celtic debut from the bench following his move from VVV Venlo.

Celtic team: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Montgomery; McCarthy, Turnbull, Rogic; Abada, Jota, Ajeti Subs: Bain, Scales, Bitton, Giakoumakis, Soro, Bolingoli, Urhoghide, Welsh, Juranovic.

Raith team: MacDonald, Dick, Berra, Benedictus, Tumilty, Riley-Snow, Connolly, Tait, Matthews, Zanatta, Varian. Subs: Keatings, Lang, McKay, Thomson, Fotheringham, Mitchell
