Killie With Sights On Semi Final As Scottish Cup Saturday Survives The Snow
Written by RockSport on March 1, 2018
The chances of Scottish Cup Sunday action at the weekend continue to be slim but Celtic and Aberdeen are favourites to progress as last season’s finalists take on Morton and Killie respectively. The SFA have declared the Saturday cup ties ON.
1991 winners Motherwell will hope to overcome the ’98 winners Hearts at Fir Park in Lanarkshire while Rangers take on Championship Falkirk with hopes of stopping deadly rivals Celtic achieving a domestic treble for the second season running.
Picture: Killie fan and 70’s superstar Marie Osmond has tweeted good luck messages to her favourite ” soccer ” team ahead of their match at Pittodrie.
Marie’s hit PAPER ROSES was adopted as a Killie anthem in the 1970’s and the American singer has visited Rugby Park to perform it.
