Rangers or Hibernian await the winners of the tie and Ange Postecoglou’s side will be backed by another capacity crowd.

Celtic tweeted out the news on social media and released the following statement:

“The sea of green and white will descend on the national stadium next weekend, as the Celts take on St Johnstone in the Premier Sports Cup semi-final on Saturday, November 20.

“It’s a 5.15pm kick-off, and the stands will be packed with Celtic supporters selling out the majority of the stadium, to see the Bhoys battle it out for a place in the League Cup final in December.

“Your support has been so crucial to the success on the pitch, and Ange will lead the team to a sold out Hampden for what’s set to be another exhilarating League Cup performance!

“Let’s get Hampden rocking for another sold out fixture for the Celts!”

The Parkhead outfit booked their spot in the last four of the competition with a 3-0 victory over Championship side Raith Rovers in September.

Holders St Johnstone, who knocked out Dundee 2-0 in the previous round, will pose a formidable opponent after capturing last season’s Scottish Cup and League Cup trophies.
