There could be FOUR Glasgow derbies for both clubs to feast over early in the new year.

The League Cup Final and SPFL derby on December 29 has provided a nice focus for both clubs to keep the tills busy over the festive period but the Europa League draw has opened up a real money-making feast.

If, and it is a big IF, both clubs get through the Round of 32 there is a 15/1 chance that they could be paired together in the Last 16 which will be played on March 12 and 19. The SPFL computer has already arranged for the two clubs to meet at Ibrox on March 15.

For good measure the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup will be played on February 29 and March 1 with the semi-finals to be played on April 11 and 12.

BT Sport carry exclusive coverage of the Europa League, Sky Sports will show the match at Ibrox on March 15 with Premier Sports having first pick of Scottish Cup ties.

Europa League and Scottish Cup rules insist on more than 800 tickets being made available for away fans which could strain the informal agreements between the two clubs.

Non season ticket holders pay £30 for SPFL matches but the December 29 Glasgow derby will cost £49 with no shortage of fans looking for a ticket.

Home clubs keep the gate money in European ties but in the Scottish Cup the money is split.
