  1. Cheerio

    Righto. That's the Scottish Cup out of the way until April and we have two fantastic semi-finals to look forward to.

    The Edinburgh teams have a dress rehearsal on Tuesday at Easter Road and there are another five matches in the Premiership to come on Wednesday.

    There's also a full midweek card in the Championship

    As ever, we'll have it all covered right here.

    Thanks for your company this afternoon and enjoy what's left of the weekend.

  2. 'More to come from Celtic'

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Looking ahead to the semi-finals in April, Celtic boss Neil Lennon adds: "I'm sure myself and Derek (McInnes) will have wanted to avoid each other until the final. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. We're just delighted to be in the semi-final and Aberdeen are a top, top team with a top manager so it'll be as tough as they come.

    "Hearts had a great win last night, Hibs are playing really well, so it didn't matter. If you're going to win the cup you've got to beat everything that's put in front of you. The next obstacle in front of us is a really tough Aberdeen team.

    "I think there's more to come from this team, I've said they can get better and that's what we'll look to do. Europe's finished unfortunately, but we've still got a lot of trophies to play for."

  3. 'Celtic showed good resilience' - Lennon

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon speaking to BBC Radio Scotland: "It was a tough game in tough conditions. I don't think we played as well as we can in the first half but I thought we dominated the game in some parts in the second.

    "I thought we thoroughly deserved the win. Off the back of their efforts on Thursday night it's a really important win. We've got a lot to play for still, and the players showed good resilience out there, and good mental strength to get through and win the tie."

  4. Watch the highlights on Sportscene

    We have a Scottish Cup special coming up on Sportscene at 19:15 on BBC Scotland.

    You can catch up with all of the quarter-final action, with analysis from James McFadden and Steven Thompson.

  5. Celtic enjoy upper hand on Dons

    What about the other semi-final? Celtic have won their last five matches against Aberdeen and are unbeaten in the past nine meetings.

    Celtic beat the Dons in the 2017 Scottish Cup final and the same thing happened in the League Cup finals in 2016-17 and 2018-19.

  6. 'St Johnstone deserved a replay' - Wright

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright is proud of his players but is feeling the pain of defeat.

    "I thought we deserved a replay," he tells BBC Sportsound. "We were excellent and created a lot of good opportunities, particularly in the first half. We went toe-to-toe with them, which isn't easy and we were causing them problems.

    "It was a cracking cup tie but we were the losers and that's not nice.

    "Overall, we gave a lot and ended up with nothing.

    "We have to be disappointed with the goal. The set-up was wrong and we need to look at that."

  7. Post update

    Hibs and Hearts meet at Easter Road on Tuesday. We've had one away win apiece in the Edinburgh derbies so far this season.

    Hearts fans will no doubt be casting up the last meeting at Hampden, a thumping 5-1 victory in the 2012 final.

  8. Post update

    There are sure to be calls for the Edinburgh derby semi to be moved to Murrayfield but it will probably get played at noon at Hampden or some other daft time.

    The Scottish FA aren't going to cough up any cash to their rugby colleagues unless they really have to.

  9. Post update

    Ooft! An Edinburgh derby...

    Aberdeen have been on the wrong end in a fair few semis and finals against Celtic of late.

    Mouthwatering ties.

  10. SCOTTISH CUP SEMI-FINAL DRAW

    Celtic v Aberdeen

    Hearts v Hibernian

    Ties to be played on the weekend of 11/12 April.

  11. Here comes the semi-final draw...

    Just a couple of minutes now.

    It won't take long either.

  12. Contrasting emotions for the managers

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Ecstasy for Neil Lennon, agony for Tommy Wright.

  13. Celtic run keeps rolling along

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    So, that's a 34th successive win for Celtic in domestic cup competitions. Can anyone stop them?

    If they make it 36, the Scottish Cup will be theirs for the fourth year in a row.

  14. Christie gets the credit

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic duo Ryan Christie and Christopher Jullien are doing their TV interview and the big French defender graciously admits he didn't get a touch on the former's free kick.

  15. Not long until the draw

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Remember, the semi-final draw is coming up shortly...

    Celtic are in the tombola with Aberdeen, Hibernian and Hearts.

  16. 'A real cup tie'

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: St Johnstone made a real cup tie of it and they will be so disappointed not to take it to a replay
  17. Post update

    FT: St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    The Celtic players are taking time to applaud their fans in three of the four stands at McDiarmid Park. Some of them look too tired to even clap and James Forrest is limping after that crunching foul from Jamie McCart that led to the goal.

  18. FULL-TIME St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic are through to the last four of the Scottish Cup.

    The visitors were made to work very hard for the win, with St Johnstone scrapping for everything and defending for the lives until they were caught short at a late free kick.

    Did anyone get a touch on Ryan Christie's free kick?

  19. 'Celtic managing the game'

    St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: They didn't manage the game against Copenhagen in the last five minutes, but so far they're seeing themselves through. Picking up free kicks, throw-ins, whatever you need to get over the line.
  20. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic are doing a good job of keeping the ball inside the opposition half.
