CADETE'S HAT IS IN THE RING.
The Portuguese hitman could equal the record of Celtic hero Bobby Lennox if he bags a hat-trick against Falkirk in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
Lisbon Lion Lennox netted a "hat-trick of hat-tricks" - a treble in each of the Scottish domestic competitions - during the 1970-71 season.
But Cadete has at least one more chance of equalling that feat, against the Bairns.
Cadete netted three times against Alloa in the Coca-Cola Cup, and hit another treble in the Premier Division against Kilmarnock.
And he almost matched Lennox's record when he scored two goals against Clydebank in the third round of the Cup.
He was denied a chance of a hat-trick when Paolo Di Canio elected to take a penalty awarded to the Celts.
Cadete though, isn't worried about the record - as long as Celtic beat Falkirk.
"It's not important who scores the goals - it's more important that the team wins," said Scotland's top marksman.
"The hat-trick record appeals to me. But getting to the final is the main goal for me and the rest of the team.
"We want to win the Cup for the supporters. We know just how much this trophy means to everyone at Celtic."
