Joe Hart would join elite company in the shape of Sir Kenny Dalglish and Andrei Kanchelskis if he was to lift the Scottish Cup with Celtic this season. 

The duo are the only men in history to lift all three domestic trophies in both Scotland and England, and Hart could achieve the same feat if he was to go on and lift the famous old trophy this term. 

Ange Postecoglou’s side are into the quarter-final stages and take on Hearts tomorrow in what is sure to be a fiercely contested clash inside Tynecastle. 

Hart would love to go on and create history for himself and Celtic, but for the time being he is taking each game as they come. 

After being told how close he was to a silverware clean sweep, Hart responded: "Really? Yeah, but there is a long way to go - as last season showed. We got to the Scottish Cup semi-final and it just never happened for us. 

"We are at the quarter-final stage right now and I would love to be having that conversation with a medal around my neck at the end of the season. But until then, I'll just say there is a long way ahead right now." 

Hart won the FA Cup with Manchester City back in the 2010/11 season and after watching the competition closely as a boy, it simply meant the world to him. 

But now as an experienced stopper, a Scottish Cup medal around his neck would mean equally as much. He continued: "I do remember watching the FA Cup a lot when I was younger and it always carried a lot of weight. 

"We didn't have Sky Sports when I was growing up so when it was live on terrestrial channels, it was a chance for me to watch serious football. 

"Coming from Shrewsbury Town, that was also our chance to play against bigger teams as well. I always enjoyed the FA Cup before I was playing and when I started. 

"I love it all. I love all football and it just gives me satisfaction to be playing. I relish these occasions but you would do well to have a conversation with me before a game and walk away thinking I wasn't pumped for the game. 

"But I get where you are coming from, the Scottish Cup is a big thing, this is a big one and there is a lot on the line in this game. That does heighten the tension and make it more exciting.” 

Celtic take on Hearts for the second time in a week after defeating Robbie Neilson’s side at Parkhead on Wednesday on Scottish Premiership duty. 

Hart is expecting an entirely different test in the capital this time around, and he also expects changes to the Hearts starting XI. 

He said: "Tynecastle is a good gaff to play football in. I like the set-up and how close the fans are. Passionate is one word to describe how they are when we are in town. 

"But we are so lucky to have our fans behind us wherever we go and we don't take that for granted. We will be really well backed by our amazing away support and they will be behind us. That's a great thing. 

"They are a decent team and could make some changes from the other night. They are on a good run of form but we feel good as a squad, and hopefully, we can have pretty much everyone available. 

"We made some changes the other night but we showed that it doesn't matter who plays, as a squad we are all in the same space. 

"We all have the same fitness levels and the likes of Tony Ralston and Alexandro Bernabei did so well considering they had a spell out. We just concentrate on ourselves and play the game as it comes. 

"Wednesday night was a good game and we found a way. We don't want to have to come from behind again but no doubt it will be tough and there will be some edge to the game. 

"We will take the game as it comes and hopefully overcome whatever we have to face.” 

Hart also heaped praise upon striker Kyogo Furuhashi ahead of Saturday’s crunch match as he labelled the Japanese striker “top” level after already grabbing 25 goals this current campaign. 

He added: "Kyogo is great - a top player. But he's also a top guy to have in the dressing room, very quiet and very humble. 

"He works so hard for us and the energy he gives to the team, offensively and defensively, is priceless. 

"We love having him, we love producing goals for him and we love seeing him happy. 

"Hopefully he keeps producing the goals but he is also one of the guys who starts the defensive press too. 

"That is just what is expected in this team. Those are the standards and the energy demands - and they all do it. 

"Those attacking boys are up there defending and putting pressure on teams immediately.”
