Introducing Puppy to Cat

I currently have an 11 year old Border Collie and two cats. The male cat doesn't care for the dog much and hisses if the dog gets too close. The dog usually just tries to stay away from the cat to avoid the drama. I think we did a poor job of letting the cat meet the dog when he was a kitten, and he became scared. Now he's aggressive towards the dog. The female cat could care less about the dog, and they can even brush against each other as they walk by without either of them seeming to even notice. They don't play together though.

I'm concerned about how to introduce my puppy (coming in two days) to the male cat. I don't need them to be best friends, but I'd at least like both of them to know that the other isn't a threat so they can live together peacefully.

Does anyone have suggestions? Thank you.
