The SFA have confirmed that the Scottish Cup final between Celtic and Rangers will kick-off at 3pm.

That means the Hampden showpiece on May 25 will clash with the English FA Cup which kicks off at the same time.

Glasgow’s big two will meet at the national stadium for the first Scottish Cup final between the pair in 22 years after they got past Aberdeen and Hearts in the semis.

Depending on what way the league goes in the last five games, the final could either be Rangers going for a treble or Celtic going for a league and cup double.

Philippe Clement’s men already have the League Cup in the bag this season but currently sit three points behind their city rivals in the Premiership with five games remaining.

The sides will also meet at Celtic Park on May 11 in the final Old Firm league game of the season that could potentially go a long way to deciding who will be champions.

In England it will also be a local derby in the final as Manchester United take on Manchester City at Wembley for the second year in a row.

Last year’s Scottish Cup was won by Celtic as they beat Inverness Caley Thistle in the final to clinch a domestic treble in what turned out to be Ange Postecoglou’s last game in charge of the club.
