Here is’s Damian Walker with his Saturday selections.

Damian writes: No Scottish Cup this weekend and we still aren’t quite back to a full SPFL programme as it is League Cup semi-finals weekend.

“Regular readers will know I tipped Hibs to turn over Celtic a few weeks ago at double-figure odds and they came within 10 minutes of ending Celtic’s unbeaten domestic run.

“Neil Lennon’s side have another crack at ending his former side’s run in the first League Cup semi-final on Saturday. Prior to the last time the two sides met Celtic had returned from a midweek trip to Anderlecht in the Champions League.

“And the Bhoys must face Hibs again after a gruelling 90 minutes of football in Munich on Wednesday night.

“Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers must have been hoping to be the second semi-final on Sunday but that hasn’t happened and his side have a day less to recover and must be vulnerable – a fact not lost on Lennon who said: “If there is an advantage for us to be gained it is one we have to take maximum hold of.”

“So I’ll be tipping Hibs at 13-2 and looking for a first scorer from them which has to be former Hoop Anthony Stokes who has seven goals from 11 games for Hibs this season and is also on the penalties.

McBookie make Stokes 8-1 to catch what may be a weary Celtic cold with the game’s first goal.

“And in a rare move away from my normal lower-league picks I also think Rangers, like Celtic, are too short for their semi-final with Motherwell a day later.

“Just a single point separate the two semi-finalist in the Premiership yet Rangers are 9-20 favourites and Motherwell huge 11-2 outsiders.

“Those odds do not do justice to Motherwell who have won 11 of their 15 games in all competitions this season losing just three times.

“As ever when it comes to finding a Motherwell first scorer there is little point looking beyond Louis Moult.

“The striker has nine goals from 14 appearances this season, following 18 from 34 in the last campaign and 18 from 42 the season before.

“Those are incredible stats for a player plying his trade away from one of the big clubs in Scotland. And with McBookie making him a massive 8-1 to score the opening goal he is the second selection.

“The final selection is in the Championship and I have been with St Mirren all season and see no reason to change when they are second favourites to win at Falkirk.

“Okay the Bairns have a new boss in Paul Hartley but a 0-0 draw at home to second-bottom club ICT doesn’t make them 6-4 to beat the Buddies.

“They say the table doesn’t lie and Championship leaders St Mirren are a full 14 points ahead of the Bairns and yet can be backed at 7-4 – crazy odds.

“St Mirren midfielder Lewis Morgan has been earning rave reviews for his performances this season and has also been banging in the goals with eight already.

“As a result of the inflated price on the Buddies, Morgan finds himself at 10-1 with McBookie to score the first goal. That looks decent.

“Can you find a winner!”
