Holders Celtic have been given a home draw in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup after they were paired with fellow Premiership outfit Livingston. Brendan Rodgers’ men secured a place in the last eight by overcoming St Mirren 2-0 on Sunday and will welcome David Martindale’s men to Celtic Park after the Lions overcame Partick Thistle 3-2 after extra time on Saturday.

There will be a repeat of the 2016 Scottish Cup final after Hibs were drawn to take on Rangers at Easter Road, while there is another all-Premiership clash at Pittodrie when Aberdeen host Kilmarnock. Greenock Morton, who defeated Motherwell 2-1 to cause an upset on Friday night, will face Hearts at Cappielow.

BBC Scotland and Viaplay are both permitted to broadcast two ties each.
