But the draw paired Jack Ross with the club where he made his name as a manager and Peter Grant will be offered the chance to do an Edinburgh double after defeating Hearts in extra-time yesterday at Recreation Park.

Ross County’s reward for defeating Celtic at Celtic Park today is a trip to managerless Livingston while Dunfermline will host St Johnstone at East End Park for the chance to head to Hampden and the semi-finals next January.

The four quarter final matches will be played midweek, on Wednesday, December 16 and Thursday, December 17.
