The officials for this weekend's Scottish Cup semi-final tie between Aberdeen and Celtic have been confirmed.

Aberdeen will make the long journey south to Glasgow for the showpiece event at Hampden Park on Saturday lunchtime, with the game set for a 12.30pm kick-off.

Don Robertson will be the man in the middle for the encounter at the national stadium. 

He will be supported by his assistants Graeme Stewart and Steven Traynor, with David Dickinson as the fourth official.

Greg Aitken is on VAR duty alongside Andrew McWilliam at Clydesdale House.

Steven McLean will take charge of Rangers vs Hearts a day later. That game kicks off at 3pm on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Joe Hart insists Celtic will ‘stay in their lane’ as champions when it comes down to the crunch over the remaining weeks of the season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side marched into a four-point lead over Rangers at the summit of the Premiership table with a comfortable 3-0 victory over St Mirren on Saturday. A stunning second-half strike from Reo Hatate got the ball rolling for the Hoops on home turf, while strikers Kyogo and Adam Idah scored with headers respectively.

Hart has eight major trophies to his name across his illustrious career as a goalkeeper at Manchester City and Celtic.

And with the end of the season nigh, as well as his playing days, the 36-year-old insists nothing matters more than winning both the league title and Scottish Cup.

“Just stay in our lane, stay focussed,” he said when asked what it will take to get over the line. “Drawing on the power of a club that is used to winning things and not being intimidated by that. 

“Learning from that with the boys who haven’t done it learning from the boys who have. Just encouraging people that we have some simple tasks ahead of us."
