GLASGOW: Celtic will face bitter rivals Rangers in next month's Scottish League Cup final after two goals from Bobo Balde helped them beat Dundee United 3-0 in Thursday's semi-final at Hampden Park. 

The Scottish champions never found top gear but Balde's goals and one from Henrik Larsson were more than enough to secure them a return to Scotland's national stadium for the final on March 16. 

Rangers – who beat Celtic 3-2 in last season's Scottish Cup final – clinched their final place after Ronald de Boer's 27th header gave them a 1-0 win over Hearts on Tuesday. – Reuters
