Wembley is out for final.

There is no chance of the Old Firm meeting each other in the Tennents Scottish Cup at Wembley.

Celtic skipper Tom Boyd claimed that, with Hampden unavailable because of renovation, England's national stadium should be used if his side meet Rangers in the final.

But SFA spokesman Andy Mitchell last night shot down the idea.

Prior to tonight's semi-final draw he insisted: "Any semi-final or final match between these clubs will NOT be played at Wembley.

"For one thing, that stadium is not in Scotland. There are also security and logistical reasons for not going there.

"In any case, only after the draw is made would we make arrangements and, after that, it's up to the Executive Committee to decide where the games are to be played."
