Hearts have been given the details for their date with destiny against Celtic at Hampden.

The Jambos have started the season in fine form, winning each of their competitive games so far. A huge match awaits them next month when they face Celtic in the Scottish Cup final.

They made this stage with an impressive 2-1 victory over Hibs in a Scottish Cup semi-final last month, the Jambos taking Edinburgh derby bragging rights too.

Five days before Christmas, they will contest the 2019/20 final with holders Celtic in a repeat of the previous season’s showpiece. It’s set for a 2:15PM kick-off at Hampden Park.

Covid-19 has curtailed last season’s Scottish Cup competition. Semi-finals were only allowed to continue last month as the authorities held out for fan returns at these big matches.

But with virus cases rising and most of the central belt in a lockdown-style tier 4 restriction scenario, Hearts and Celtic will do battle for a big domestic prize in front of no spectators.
