Celtic fans wanting to watch Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie against Falkirk will have to fork out for a monthly subscription to Premier Sports.
Over the last two seasons Premier have had exclusive live UK and Irish coverage of all Celtic Scottish Cup ties up until the final which they have shared with BBC Scotland.
Earlier this season Premier shared coverage of Celtic’s Betfred Cup tie with the club but no deal has been struck for Saturday’s match against Falkirk.
Not hadn’t any confirmation yet Gaz, will update as soon as I know

Not willing to sell it to us Gaz so we won’t be able to broadcast it in the UK or Ireland ?

Celtic could be involved in four Scottish Cup ties that are on Premier Sport before the end of the season with the subscription channel knowing that they can maximise their audience and subscriptions without doing a deal with the club.
On Saturday Celtic set out looking to win the Scottish Cup for the fifth time running with League One leaders Falkirk winning their Second Round tie away to Arbroath last week.
