ABERDEEN were the last team to score against Celtic 1035 minutes ago but I can see history repeating itself today.

The Dons head to Parkhead on a high after beating St Johnstone 4-0 to reach the League Cup Final and have netted on three of their last four visits, including a 4-3 defeat.

It could be a cracker and there’s bound to be an edge after Neil Lennon’s treatment by so-called Aberdeen fans while he watched their semi-final success at Tynecastle.

Celtic are no bigger than 2-5 at Coral to win with Aberdeen 15-2 with Paddy Power and the draw 17-4 at bet365.

Best bet for me is both teams to score at 21-20 with William Hill and McBookie while Celtic are 12-5 with William Hill to win with both sides netting.

McGinn is 4-1 at Betfred to score and he’ll be well supported by new signing Adam Rooney – two goals in two games – who is 15-4 at bet365.

For Celtic it’s all about Kris Commons as usual and the top scorer is 3-1 (various) to break the deadlock.

There’s usually a shock but it’s difficult to pinpoint one this weekend. Three Premiership sides face lower-league opposition – Hibs v Raith, Forfar v St Johnstone and Stranraer v ICT – and all should ease through.

A treble on Hibs, Saints and Inverness makes sense and pays a best 2-1 at Ladbrokes.

Raith travel to Easter Road without top scorer Callum Elliot and haven’t netted in their last five matches. Hibs are 1-2 at Coral to win and 11-8 at Hills to do so without conceding.

Stevie May has hit five goals in his last four games is 11-10 with Hills to net in a St Johnstone win at Forfar. Saints are 4-9 (general).

Inverness will be buoyant after reaching the League Cup Final and while Stranraer can be dangerous they’ve gone off the boil with just one win in five. Back ICT at 1-2 with Coral and Betfred.

The one all-Championship tie sees Alloan entertain Dumbarton. Chris Kane has scored in his last five matches including a double against the Wasps in a recent 5-1 win – Paul Hartley’s last in charge.
Barry Smith has come in and started with a fine 1-1 draw at Dundee.

Dumbarton have netted 12 in their last three away games and are 6-4 at Coral. Kane to score in an away victory pays 11-5 at Hills.

Seventeen goals were scored in the matches between Albion Rovers and Stenny last season so consider over 3.5 at 9-5 with McBookie.

    Shocker Stevie

  9. mark stephenson 4 years ago

    well my trebles lost today did liverpool leeds celtic also the same bet but with both teams to score just my luck 1 team let me down every time i do a bet on football at least i get lucky on irish lotto still well done aberdeen its your double to throw away easy street

  10. Clarky 4 years ago

    Tony better luck next time.dont you think it’s time Lennon went.i don’t think to win the league is good enough with the money and squad he has.

  11. Tony 4 years ago

    Clarky am a gers fanmate. It isn’t good enough for sure they couldn’t win a treble when we wher in the top division an they still cant an we aren’t thier love it

  12. Mark Stephenson 4 years ago

    Tony you play pub teams week in week out and pay massive wages to overrated un wanted players over spending again but celtic were dire and lennon doesnt know how to wim cups aberdeen safe bet for double must be worth a wager

  13. Tony 4 years ago

    How is it worth a wager they put yous out the day an we didnt expect that so we dont really know who will win it. If u want to put a wager on it mark go for it

  14. Ruby 4 years ago

    Who do you think will win the Scottish Cup now Mr Fixit since you bet on Celtic?

      Ruby, at this stage I’d pick Aberdeen but obviously the draw will be crucial. Imagine we got something like Rangers v Aberdeen and Albion Rovers v Dumbarton.

  15. Tony 4 years ago

    Its any1s for the taking paul aberdeen dundee utd rangers all close, people need to remember this is still rangers an they know how to win an have that experience over rhe others as long as they defend properly a think thier is every chance they can win it now

      Tony, you’re a Rangers fans so are obviously biased. From a neutral perspective the jury is out on Rangers until they play and beat a Premier League team – something they haven’t done this season. You think Rangers will win the Cup – well I have mate who supports Dumbarton and he’s starting to believe they can win it too.

  16. Tony 4 years ago

    Rangers v aberdeen final would be a good show piece for the scottish game. If they dont meet till then, an albion rovers v dumbarton final they would need to change venue to fir park, the hole top tier of celtic park would be closed

  17. Tony 4 years ago

    Of cousre it is paul am not saying 100 % a think rangers will win it. A think they have as good a chance as any1 else thats left except maybe aberdeen utd any of they 2 an defend the way they have on occasions against ptimers it would be curtains, dumbarton fans are aloud to dream but it would be a bad day for scottish football if dumbarton did win it.

      Tony, if Dumbarton win the Cup they’ll qualify for Europe unlike Rangers. And they’ll probably perform just as well as Hibs did in the Europa League this season.

  18. Tony 4 years ago

    Paul rangers have payed for bad ownership. If u would like to c dumbarton in europe then lets hope they win it.

      Tony, I didn’t say that did I – just pointing it out. I’m a Clydebank fan – I don’t want to see Dumbarton winning jack s***.

  19. Tony 4 years ago

    So if rangers play dumbarton u would want a rangers win forgot about the history between cbank an dumbarton. Anyway its a game of football an know1 knows what the outcome is going to be until its over.

      Tony, when two teams play and one isn’t Clydebank I don’t care who wins – unless I have a bet on them.

  20. Mark Stephenson 4 years ago

    Now both rangers and aberdeen have easy games in the next round both will go to semi were o think they will meet my prediction is a caley v aberdeen cup final again with aberdeen winning both 3-1 the dons are by far better than any other team but still along way behind the mighty celtic lennon made big mistakes yesterday in the team selection as hes does a lot

  21. GrahamG 4 years ago

    Why does everyone keep saying rangers haven’t played a premier league team yet they haven’t been tested yet until they play one. We can only beat the team that we are drawn against simple as that. And as for Celtic 2 years without rangers in the league and all this talk of trebles last season and this season and yous still can’t do it without us there.

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      GrahamG, as a neutral I’m saying it too. Rangers fans believe they’re the second best team in the country but jury’s out until they play and beat a Premier League side. I’ve seen them struggle past many League One teams so let’s see what happens if they play the likes of Aberdeen and Dundee Utd.

  22. GrahamG 4 years ago

    All I’m saying is we can’t pick who we get drawn against not our fault we haven’t drawn a premier league team doesn’t help when most are out the competition already! I’d love to play one to see how far we have come from last year. We destroyed Motherwell last year in the cup when they were top of the league at the time and we were a terrible side. Then caley who were a good side under butcher thumped us no complaints. So who’s to say we can’t beat Aberdeen Dundee Utd or st Johnstone it’s a one off game all the pressure is on them!
