Scottish Football: Cup final in the Old Firm’s sights, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) returns with his best bets from Saturday's action in Scotland.

Hibs v Celtic | Saturday 2nd November 2019, 17:30 | BT Sport

Form often goes out of the window in semi-finals but I expect nothing but easy League Cup wins for the Old Firm this weekend. It's Glasgow v Edinburgh but both Hibs and Hearts have fallen miles behind their big-spending rivals with both languishing in the bottom four.

Over the last two seasons Celtic v Hibs and Rangers v Hearts have been competitive and exciting – sometimes tough to call. But while I hate using the term “bankers” that's exactly what the runaway top two look and we should have a Celtic v Rangers final to savour next month.

First up it's Hibs v Celtic with Neil Lennon's side winning four in a row since losing to Livingston with an aggregate of 14-1. This season it was 1-1 at Easter Road but the Hoops have stepped up a couple of gears and are going for 30 domestic knockout wins in a row.

Back Celtic and Over 2.5 Goals at 17/20 with Coral.

Motherwell v Livingston | Saturday 2nd November 2019, 15:00

There are three Premiership games on Saturday and all all look tight. But best bets could be Motherwell at evens with Ladbrokes at home to Livingston.

The Steelmen sit third after bouncing back from successive defeats with victory at home to Kilmarnock in midweek.

Livi tend to do their best work on their own patch – away from the Toni Macaroni Arena they've taken just one point from the last 12.

Motherwell have won two and drawn one of their three Fir Park meetings since Livi returned to the top flight and can get the better of the Lions again.

Stranraer v Clyde | Saturday 2nd November 2019, 15:00

In League One, Clyde won at heavyweights Falkirk last week and should follow up by taking three points at Stranraer.

The hosts are bottom with no wins in eight and Clyde can secure a third straight away success.

Take the visitors at 10/11 with Marathon.

Best Bets

Hibs v Celtic – Celtic to win and Over 2.5 Goals (17/20 Coral)

Motherwell v Livingston – Motherwell to win (1/1 Ladbrokes)

Stranraer v Clyde – Clyde to win (10/11 Marathon)
