Three William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final games have been moved for live television coverage.

Rangers will get the action underway on the Saturday when they host either Dumbarton or Dundee on 5 March. The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports with a 12.30pm kick-off.

The following day there are back to back matches with Celtic hosting Greenock Morton with a noon start time (also on Sky), before Hibernian host Inverness Caledonian Thistle at 2pm. The latter of those games will be shown live on the BBC.

The only tie not to appear on live television is Ross County v Dundee United, which retains its orthodox Saturday at 3pm kick-off time.

Fans had expressed their dissatisfaction that the kick-off times had yet to be announced prior to today, with the matches due to take place next weekend.

It was presumed the TV companies were waiting on the winner of Dumbarton v Dundee before finalising their choices. However, they’ve now gone ahead with their selections prior to that replay taking place tonight.
