The Green Brigade have urged Celtic fans to wear the hoops and join them on the march to Hampden for the Scottish Cup final.

The Hoops meet Rangers this Saturday hoping to heap more misery on them after pipping them to the Premiership title, making the most of that with plenty of partying since clinching it with victory over Kilmarnock last Wednesday. They will hope to be celebrating again come Saturday evening but will be out in their numbers hours BEFORE the match.

The group have invited fellow supporters to gather at Glasgow Green on Saturday before then starting a procession along to the national stadium. Along with fellow ultras Bhoys Celtic, they did the same last year before the final victory over Inverness and police escorted the corteo to Hampden.

Thousands gathered at the Saltmarket for what was branded 'Tims in the Park' before marching towards the national stadium two hours before kick off and that appears to be the plan again. The Green Brigade have put out a promotional video and are urging fellow supporters to "Wear the Hoops to Hampden." for 'Tims in the Park 2'.

It will come just a week after fans descended on Trongate for a city centre party on the day their team was awarded the Premiership trophy, with street closures forced and flares and fireworks let off.

Brendan Rodgers is aiming for a league and cup double in his first season back at the club after being knocked out of the League Cup early on. Rangers won that meaning they are also in the hunt for a double.
