    Semi Final trivia whilst waiting on the draw

    Rangers and Celtic have both been in the League Cup semi final draw on 26 occasions since the tournament started in 1947.

    How many times have they been drawn against each other in the semi final?

    Answer will be posted after the Motherwell-Aberdeen result.

    Ps. Having a guess is more intuitive than googling!

    Had a feeling Motherwell could win that game tonight based on current form...they have been the surprise team for me this season so far.

    Motherwell have just made it 3-0 so the semi-final draw is 'good to go'.

    Answer to the trivia question is;

    8 times

    Rangers and Celtic have both been in the League cup semi-finals 26 times. They have been drawn together 8 times.

    For younger Bounce readers, there were always strong rumours that one of the draw balls for the old firm was warmed up before they were put in the bag and therefore it was easier to stage manage the draw.

    Prior to 1991 they were both in the semi- final draw 16 times and drawn against each other 3 times.

    However, after 1991 they were both in the draw 10 times and it was 5 against each other and they avoided each other the other five times.
    Not sure when the draw started being televised but more recent history suggests that semi-finals with both Rangers and Celtic in the draw are more likely to see a derby when public scrutiny is available.

    Happy with the draw.

    Against the other two yes they are weaker opponents than Celtc but there would be a certain amount of pressure.

    None up against Celtc.

    Agreed - it's a shot to nothing, really. Just turn up and play well, see what transpires. Looking forward to it already.

    Our next fixtures look ... challenging:

    Ross County A
    Celtc A
    Sheep H
    Celtc LCQF
    Gunts H

    Stay off the drink. Makes all the difference. Well, maybe just a few then.

    Unless she's a real munter you'll manage a semi in Sheffield.
