Adam Matthews has backed Celtic to continue to deliver results on the road after being handed another away tie in the William Hill Scottish Cup.

The Hoops travel to Tannadice to face Dundee United - who dumped Rangers out of the competition at the weekend - in the quarter-finals. They have already had lengthy trips to Peterhead and Inverness in earlier rounds this season.

Matthews said: "The players are used to it now. We've just got to go to Dundee and do the job. We would have liked a home draw because we've got great fans and I think we play best at home.

"But we have shown this season that we can go away to places and get key results and I'm sure we can do it again."

Celtic remain on course for a domestic clean sweep and Matthews is confident Neil Lennon's men can reach the Scottish Cup final again this season.

The full-back said: "Every footballer dreams of winning cups when they are young. That's one of the reasons why I came to Celtic and I'm confident we can win the cup."
