Celtic v Rangers a must

The Scottish Cup fifth round is on this weekend.

Rangers host Dunfermline tomorrow night and Celtic entertain Aberdeen the next day.

Come on the Gers and come on the Hoops, I say.

Celtic are romping towards the Scottish Premiership title and Rangers are doing the same in League One. The only points of interest for both in those divisions now relate to them remaining unbeaten.

Better than nothing I guess, but Scottish football needs more than that... it needs an Old Firm derby to get the juices flowing in one of the most mundane campaigns ever.

It's a must that Ally McCoist and Neil Lennon inspire Cup victories, before hopefully being draw to face each other in the quarter-finals.
