The Betfred Cup final can't come quick enough for fans of both Rangers and Celtic.

Sunday's first opportunity for silverware this season is to be broadcast live on BT Sport from Hampden Park.

But supporters have been left in awe at the prospect of a whopping NINE HOUR show with coverage of the game kicking-off at 9am.

The match itself, of course, doesn't begin until 3pm at the national stadium.

However, producers at BT Sport have decided to go all-out for their last hurrah after rivals Sky Sports won the rights to Scottish football from next season following a bidding war.

The programme will run until 6pm allowing for previews, live match coverage and fallout and analysis.

Grant Philips, Executive Producer and Match Director at Sunset and Vine, the production company behind BT's coverage, said: "We are throwing everything at it.

"It's our last one, a huge game for BT Sport and our Sunset and Vine team in Glasgow.

"We love covering Scottish football and that’s reflected in everything we do up here."
