Tangerines seek Scottish Cup double

Dundee United aim for an Old Firm double as they take on Scottish Cup holders Celtic in the quarter-final at Tannadice on Sunday.

The Tangerines have already knocked out Rangers whilst also considerably improving their own league position with a recent rise into fourth place in the table.

Midfielder Danny Swanson is again unlikely to be involved against the runaway SPL leaders and Scott Severin is also still restricted to the sidelines from an otherwise full-strength squad.

"We are big underdogs for this game, Celtic will always be favourites to beat Dundee United," manager Peter Houston admitted to BBC Scotland. "The big thing for us is that we try our hardest and I believe if you do that then maybe a wee bit of luck will come to you.

"We have had that in the last wee while so hopefully we can get a bit more," he added. "We are scoring goals and keeping clean sheets - hopefully we've kept some for Sunday."

Celtic are set to recall skipper Scott Brown from injury while Ki Sung-Yueng, Emilio Izaguirre and Efrain Juarez should are also in contention following recent international duty.
