Celtic and City chasing cup glory

Guardiola is gunning for further greatness

AS the football season’s domestic drama comes to a head, there’s plenty to look forward to ahead of the summer break as the Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup and English FA Cup are all lifted.

Rangers finish their campaign with a tricky trip to Kilmarnock (May 19)and will be aiming to show they are already looking to next season after some improvement in Steven Gerrard’s debut year at Ibrox.

At the same time, Celtic will lift the title after their game against Hearts in what will be a warm up for the Scottish Cup final six days later (May 25), when the Jambos head through to Glasgow again to try and halt Celtic’s historic treble-treble in arguably the biggest game of Scotland’s domestic season.

In England, Pep Guardiola’s unstoppable Manchester City are looking for a massive trophy haul of their own as they take on a battling Watford side in the FA Cup final at Wembley (May 18).

A few hours later, boxing fans will witness the ring return of Billy Joe ‘Superb’ Saunders after he was suspended for testing positive for a banned substance last year.

The Englishman takes on stiff opposition in the form of Serbian Shefat Ifusi for the vacant WBO super-middleweight title.

Formula 1 action moves to the glamorous setting of Monte Carlo over the coming fortnight for the Monaco Grand Prix (May 26).
