Victory will also go some way towards easing the pressure on Bhoys boss Neil Lennon, who has found his position questioned after his side's faltering form in recent weeks has triggered protests from supporters.
Celtic will have the chance to escape from their current woes on Sunday when they take on Championship side Hearts at Hampden Park.
The final is a repeat of the 2019 edition when the Celts beat the Edinburgh outfit 2-1, and it is an important game for the Hoops, who now cannot complete a fifth successive domestic treble after being eliminated from the League Cup in the second round of that competition.
The Hoops have drawn five and lost seven games in all competitions this season, form that has seen them slip 13 points behind Rangers in the league table, and also exit the Europa League at the group stages.
Fans have protested angrily outside Celtic Park, and the club's board has had to reassert its support for the beleaguered manager.
Six losses and four draws in the last 14 games is not the kind of form that is tolerated for long at Celtic Park, but Lennon has reacted to the pressure in typically bullish style by stating that he believes he is the man to turn things round.
Back-to-back wins over Lille in the Europa League and Kilmarnock in the league in the last two games have hinted that the Hoops might have turned the corner.
Hearts boss Robbie Neilson knows that his team are heavy underdogs going into Sunday's final, but he knows what it takes to win a Scottish Cup final from his playing days.
Back in 2006, Neilson was part of the Jambos side that beat Gretna at Hampden Park, and he achieved the feat alongside two of the senior lynchpins of his current squad.
There is plenty of experience in Neilson's squad that will mean his team are unlikely to be overawed by the occasion in Glasgow at the weekend.
Those players possess the kind of experience that will help younger players keep their heads, although the lack of any spectators at Hampden will surely mean that the whole day is much less intense than usual.
Extra motivation for Hearts is sure to be provided by the recent death of former club favourite Marius Zaliukas, who tragically passed away on the same day that the Jambos beat Hibernian in the semi-final.
The Hearts players will all wear the number 26 on their shorts on Sunday in tribute to Zaliukas, who was the skipper when the club last won the Scottish Cup in 2012.
Should Neilson's men pull off a major shock and win the cup then it would be the perfect tribute to the late Lithuanian.

Neil Lennon has a few issues to mull over when it comes to picking his Hoops team for Sunday's game, not least when it comes to choosing his goalkeeper.
Lennon also has a big decision to make in midfield, with stalwart club icon Scott Brown not enjoying his greatest run of form during the Celts' recent slump.
Ismaila Soro has looked good in recent games and Lennon has the option of turning to him as a replacement for the former Scotland captain.
The Celts' only injury absentee is winger James Forrest, whose return to action after ankle surgery looks like extending until at least the end of January now.
For Hearts, who sit on top of the Scottish Championship, centre-back John Souttar is a long-term absentee, so veteran Christophe Berra will line up alongside Craig Halkett in the middle of the back four.
Jambos midfielder Loic Damour is out with a foot injury that has seen him sidelined since August.
Celtic possible starting lineup:
Hazard; Ajer, Jullien, Duffy; Frimpong, Soro, McGregor, Taylor; Turnbull, Christie; Edouard
Hearts possible starting lineup:
Gordon; Smith, Halkett, Berra, Kingsley; Haring, Lee; Walker, Naismith, Halliday; Boyce
We say: Celtic 2-1 Hearts
Our prediction for this game is that Celtic will secure the quadruple treble with a 2-1 win over Hearts, but it is likely to be a tough and tight game.
It would not be a surprise if extra time was needed to settle things, with the Jambos sure to be fired up, not least as they look to pay tribute to the late Marius Zaliukas.
