  1. Bye for now

    Will it be Stand Free or Sunshine on Leith at Hampden on Saturday?

    BBC Scotland has the game covered on TV, online and radio, with a 12:15 BST kick off.

    Sunday's game will be covered live by BBC Radio Scotland, with extended highlights on Sportscene from 18:00.

    We'll have online highlights of both matches too.

    Not long to go now... Make sure you join us over the weekend.

  2. 'Pressure is off' for cup holders

    Hibernian head coach Neil Lennon says the pressure is off his side as they go into Saturday's semi final against Aberdeen. 

    Lennon feels his players have been written off by many against the high-flying Dons, despite lifting the cup last season for the first time in 114 years.

    The Hibs boss says he'll name a "positive" line-up, but admits Aberdeen have numerous potent attacking threats.

  3. McGinn boost for Aberdeen

    Niall McGinn missed Aberdeen's win at St Johnstone last weekend but the influential forward should be back in the starting line up on Saturday afternoon.

    "Everyone is fit and available for the game, Niall trained this morning and will travel," says Dons boss Derek McInnes. 

  4. Shinnie versus Shinnie

    The Shinnie brothers, Andrew and Graeme, may well go head-to-head at Hampden on Saturday.

    Both have been talking to BBC Sport Scotland...

    Ryan Jack has picked out Jason Cummings as one of the most dangerous Hibs players this weekend. Cummings this week starred in his own wrestling-style social media video which went viral, strutting around in tiny trunks and taking on Scottish wrestling icon Grado.

    Jack has seen the video and will not be emulating it, but does say: "It shows there's a good team-spirit in the Hibs squad, similar to what we have here."

    So will he be doing the same? "No." 

  6. Darren McGregor on facing Aberdeen

    "I've played against these guys before, we know what to expect, but it will be a step up."  

  7. Darren McGregor on life at Hibernian

    "These are two of the best years I've had in Scottish football. To be from Leith having supported Hibs and contributing last year was really something."

  8. BreakingDuffy to serve touchline ban

    Morton manager Jim Duffy will serve a two-match ban following his touchline altercation with Hibs boss Neil Lennon.

    Duffy, 57, was charged with misconduct for entering the Hibs technical area at Easter Road and adopting an aggressive attitude towards Lennon in stoppage time of a 0-0 draw on 29 March.

    The same complaint against assistant Craig McPherson was withdrawn.

    Duffy faces an additional one-game ban if he transgresses again this year, while Morton were fined £750 for the fracas, £500 payable immediately and the rest suspended.

    "Everyone expected Hibs to win the league. They deserve a lot of credit. They will be a welcome addition to the top-flight next season... I don't think there's a lot between the teams."

  11. 'We want to win it' - Aberdeen boss

    Hibs v Aberdeen (Sat, 12:15)

    "Our performances have been excellent; we don't have any fear for Saturday.

    "Getting through the Championship was a big monkey off our back. Derek McInnes has built a really good team. They can hurt you from different ways, but so can we."
