  1. Post update

    That's enough from me. I'm in danger of cramping up after back-to-back games. The matches at Ibrox and Tynecastle were more one-sided than we'd have liked in terms of spectacle but I'm sure that's of no concern to followers of Rangers and Celtic.

    We'll bring you tomorrow's draw and you can catch highlights of today's games online later today and on Sportscene at 22:30 GMT.

    Enjoy what's left of your weekend.

  2. Post update

    That's 11 goals for John Guidetti since his loan move from Manchester City. Can Celtic hold on to the big Swedish striker?

  3. Post update

    Celtic striker Anthony Stokes on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We dominated, although the red card has changed the game. We took our time and ground them down, we were professional. After the first goal we were in control.

    "We took our foot off the gas a little but that happens. The manager wants us to drive on. He's relentless.

    "It's always nice to score here, coming as an ex-Hibs player.

  4. Post update

    Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson on BBC Radio Scotland

    "I thought my players worked really hard. I don't want to get drawn on decisions because we are trying to be dignified and we'll use this as motivation for the rest of the season. I think there's only one person that thinks it's a penalty and that changes the game. At 1-0 you are always in the game but as soon as the second goes in Celtic can start popping the ball around.

    "The main aim for us is the league. It would have been nice to have a cup run but it wasn't to be. We were playing against the best team in Scotland and had a man sent off and then there was the penalty. You need the rub of the green and we didn't get it."

  5. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We were quick to win the ball back and kept them under pressure. In the end, it's about winning and I'm happy to be in the next round.

    "It's been a fantastic journey for me so far and I'm looking forward to more and being here for a long time."

    The Norwegian has been in the job for six months now...

  6. Post update

    The draw will be made at 14:00 GMT at Hampden Park. Keep an eye on the BBC Sport website for details.

  7. Post update

    So, Rangers and Celtic are through to tomorrow's draw for the fifth round of the Scottish Cup following comfortable victories.

    They will be joined in the hat / tombola by trophy holders St Johnstone, along with Dundee United, Dundee, Partick Thistle, Hibernian, Queen of the South, Falkirk, Raith Rovers, Arbroath and Spartans.

    We need replays for Inverness v St Mirren, Annan v Brechin, Stranraer v Dunfermline and Berwick Rangers v Albion Rovers.

  8. Post update

    BBC Sportsound pundit Allan Preston

    "The penalty was a huge call at that stage of the game against 10 men and the officials got it wrong."


    Hearts 0-4 Celtic

    Virgil van Dijk (left0 scored twice for Celtic at Tynecastle

    Well, that was a stroll in the park for Celtic after that early red card for Hearts captain Morgaro Gomis. Virgil van Dijk scored twice and really should have had a hat-trick. John Guidetti converted a very, very soft penalty and Anthony Stokes rattled in a low shot.

  10. Post update

    We're into stoppage time now. This will soon be over.

    Anon: "Being a Jags fan I feel a tiny bit worried ahead of Wednesday night."

    Come on, Anon, you guys are still in the Scottish Cup after beating Hamilton yesterday, although it's probably best to forget the recent 6-0 thumping at Cetic Park in the League Cup.

  12. Post update

    Celtic are top of the league and in the semi-finals of the League Cup. Would you bet against a domestic treble for Ronny Deila's men?

  13. Post update

    Leigh Griffths lets fly with a wayward shot and it skelps the shins of Celtic team-mate Scott Brown diverting the ball much closer to the target. Goalkeeper Neil Alexander looks on from a static position as the hosts narrowly avoid conceding a fifth goal.

  14. Post update

    Robbie Buchanan decides to have a go himself and the 18-year-old Hearts replacement forward drills his shot narrowly wide after an enterprising run from halfway.


    Kris Commons hammers the ball in from close-range after Neil Alexander fumbles a fierce dig from Aleksander Tonev. Perhaps feeling guilty about the penalty he gave or just sorry for Hearts, referee Willie Collum blows for a mystery infringement. It looks like another poor decision from the whistler.


    James Keatings hobbles off, with Scott Robinson coming on.

  17. Post update

    It's all a bit flat now as Celtic move down the gears. James Keatings is in need of treatment on an ankle injury - or maybe he's just utterly spent after chasing every lost cause up front for Hearts.

  18. Text us on 80295

    Gaz in Paisley: "Last 32 in Europe. Top of the table. Progressing in both domestic cups. When will Celtic fans start to accept that maybe... just maybe... Deila is the real deal?"

  19. Post update

    John Guidetti

    Celtic striker John Guidetti salutes the crowd after netting a controversial penalty. The striker simply lost his footing and referee Willie Collum took a while to point to the spot, suggesting he may have had a shout from his assistant. Either way, it was never a penalty...


    Hearts youngster Robbie Buchanan is on for Jamie Walker, who appears to be in some discomfort.


    Celtic make two more changes as Kris Commons and Leigh Griffiths come on to replace Anthony Stokes and Stefan Johansen. Those two will want to get involved in the scoring and we still have around 25 minutes to go.

  22. Text us on 80295

    Anon: "That's as disgraceful an award of a penalty as you'll ever see - if John Guidetti had one ounce of sportsmanship about him then he would have held his hands up and told the referee."

  23. Post update

    Hearts show some spirit as Jamie Walker gets into a shooting position but his effort is easily scooped up by goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

  24. GOAL

    Hearts 0-4 Celtic (Van Dijk)

    It's a second goal for Virgil van Dijk, who is standing unattended right in the middle of the six yard box to nod in Stefan Johansen's corner kick. Neil Alexander gets a paw on the ball but can't keep it out.


    Celtic withdraw James Forrest and bring on Aleksander Tonev. The wee winger doesn't look too happy about being taken off.

    Hearts bring on Prince Buaben for Jason Holt in a bid to beef up their depleted midfield.

  26. GOAL

    Hearts 0-3 Celtic (Stokes)

    Celtic skipper Scott Brown slips the ball to Anthony Stokes to the left of the penalty box and the forward finds the opposite bottom corner with a shot after shifting his feet. It wasn't hit with great pace and keeper Neil Alexander should probably be keeping that out.

  27. GOAL

    Hearts 0-2 Celtic (Guidetti)

    Brad McKay is booked, probably for his reaction to John Guidetti's tumble rather than any trip - because there wasn't one - and Stefan Johansen is also cautioned for getting involved in some afters. TV replays show there was no contact at all but Guidetti doesn't care a jot as he slams in the penalty.


    Spot-kick to Celtic as John Guidetti goes down under pressure from Brad McKay.

  29. Post update

    Howls of derision from the Hearts fans as Celtic full-back Emilio Izaguirre, in the perfect position to swing in a cross near the byline, loses his footing and falls in a heap under no pressure at all.

  30. KICK-OFF

    We're off and running again at Tynecastle.

  31. Post update

    The teams are back out and there is no sign of any substitutes.

  32. Post update

    Hearts are only one goal behind, so we can't write them off. However, they are struggling to retain possession and the 10-men were hanging on against waves of Celtic attacks in the last 15 minutes of the first half. Still, they could grab a goal from a set-piece for example. Stranger things have happened...

  33. Post update

    Highlights of both today's games will be available online later on and on Sportscene at 22:30 GMT on BBC One Scotland. Nicky Law scored a real belter for Rangers and you really need to see Virgil van Dijk's miss to believe it.

  34. Post update

    BBC Sportsound pundit Allan Preston

    "Celtic have got the game by the scruff of the neck and it's theirs to throw away now. I can't see that happening. The red card has killed the contest."


    Hearts 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic celebrate Virgil van Dijk's 29th-minute goal

    Celtic are in good shape at Tynecastle. Hearts are down to 10 men after that early red card for Morgaro Gomis and Virgil van Dijk fired the visitors in front after 29 minutes.

  36. Post update

    John Guidetti and James Forrest exchange passes in the home penalty box but Hearts players are throwing themselves into blocks and the winger can only fire over the top under pressure.

  37. Post update

    Five minutes to go until half-time and you feel another Celtic goal before the break would kill the tie. The men in maroon are hanging tough, packing men in and around their own penalty box.

  38. Post update

    A second goal for Virgil van Dijk surely? No! The big defender somehow knocks the ball over the top from no more than a yard after a low corner from Anthony Stokes scoots into his path. Incredible...

  39. Post update

    What do Hearts do now? They can't go chasing the game with 10 men. I guess the instructions will be to keep it tight and hope they can nick a goal back later.

  40. GOAL

    Hearts 0-1 Celtic (Van Dijk)

    Hearts fail to clear from a corner and the ball falls to Anthony Stokes on the left edge of the box. The Irish forward has a wild swipe and the ball flies to Virgil van Dijk, who steers the ball into the bottom corner from near the penalty spot.

  41. Post update

    Neil Alexander is rooted to the spot as a shot from Nir Bitton takes a big deflection and spins narrowly wide of the target.

  42. Post update

    Celtic pop a few passes around at a good tempo and have the Hearts rearguard stretched only for Emilio Izaguirre to float a weak cross straight into the arms of Neil Alexander.

  43. Post update

    Celtic are seeing more and more of the ball, as you might expect against 10 men, but they are still to test home goalkeeper Neil Alexander. Adam Matthews has a pop from long-range but the shot is way off target.

  44. Post update

    Hearts boss Robbie Neilson appears to be reviewing the Morgaro Gomis sending-off on a mobile phone. Either that or he's catching up on the River City omnibus...

  45. Post update


    Morgaro Gomis is sent off at Tynecastle

    Morgaro Gomis will be sitting in the dressing room wishing he could go back in time and make that tackle on Scott Brown all over again. The Hearts captain had his hackles up after having his ankles nibbled at by a couple of Celtic players before he lunged in.

  46. Post update

    The home fans howl in outrage as Scott Brown flattens Miguel Pallardo. Referee Willie Collum keeps his cards in his pocket and Alim Ozturk lines up the free-kick, with his low effort skidding wide of the mark.


    Jamie Walker is clipped as he gets to the ball before Adam Matthews and the Celtic full-back is cautioned.

  48. Post update

    John Guidetti has a pop from the free-kick but cannot get the ball over the defensive wall as it spins out for a corner.

  49. Post update

    Tempers fray as Callum Paterson is penalised for a late challenge on John Guidetti. Celtic have a free-kick 25 yards out...

  50. Post update

    The Hearts captain has let his side down there. Both feet were off the ground as he flew into the tackle. He took the ball but it was reckless, no doubt.

  51. RED CARD

    A huge blow for Hearts as skipper Morgaro Gomis leaps into a challenge with Celtic counterpart Scott Brown and is sent for an early bath.

  52. Post update

    Scotland manager Gordon Strachan is at Tynecastle today. He saw home wins at Dens Park and Ainslie Park yesterday. Can Hearts emulate Dundee and Spartans?

  53. Post update

    James Keatings, who started his career at Celtic, hares after Virgil van Dijk as the defender strides forward but this time he is swatted aside like an annoying fly without the Dutchman breaking stride.

  54. Post update

    Hearts have started well as the ball breaks to James Keating in a central position on the edge of the penalty box. The striker fires in a low shot and Craig Gordon has to get down smartly to save.

  55. Post update

    A big cheer from the home fans as little James Keatings puts big Efe Ambrose under pressure on the byline and wins his side a throw-in.

  56. KICK-OFF

    We are off! Hold on to your bunnets...

  57. Post update

    The teams are out. Not long to go now.

    Eleven teams are already through to the fifth round, with four draws yesterday. Will it be Hearts or Celtic joing them for Monday afternoon's draw?

  58. Post update

    There have been three Scottish Cup finals between these two, with Hearts winning 3-1 in 1956 and 4-3 in 1901, while Celtic enjoyed a 3-0 victory in 1907.

  59. Post update

    Craig Gordon has been hugely impressive since he joined Celtic in the summer. All the more so, given his near two-years out of the game through injury.

    I'm sure he'll get a good reception from the home fans today since the goalkeeper was a real Hearts hero. He last played at Tynecastle back in May 2007.

  60. Post update

    Celtic have won their last six domestic matches but lost 3-1 at home to Salzburg on Thursday, although they still managed to qualify from their Europa League group with a game to spare. Ronny Deila's team could not live with the pace and invention of the Austrians in the first half hour.

  61. Post update

    The Jambos lifted the Scottish Cup as recently as 2012, beating Celtic at the semi-final stage. However, Celtic have been merciless in the meetings since then, including a 7-0 walloping at Tynecastle at this stage of the competition last season. In the nine games played since Hearts' Hampden triumph, Celtic have been victorious each time, scoring 31 goals and letting in just two.

  62. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila on BBC Radio Scotland

    "They are the best team in the Championship, they have a lot of confidence and they played well against us in the League Cup.

    "Hearts like to pass the ball and I like that. I like the way they play and the way they have developed the team with the youngsters.

    "I expect them to play their own game and try to win the game of course, but I hope it's no different from the League Cup game."

  63. Post update

    Kilmarnock manager Allan Johnston on BBC Radio Scotland

    "I know what the players are capable of and they never got anywhere near those levels. That's simply not good enough."

    That's five defeats in a row for Kilmarnock now and Mr Johnston sounded like a very angry man.

  64. Post update

    Hearts are flying high at the top of the Championship, unbeaten in the second tier, but they will have their work cut out against the Premiership leaders today. The teams met in the League Cup earlier this season, with Celtic easing to a 3-0 win.

  65. Post update

    Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We're always testing ourselves and there is no bigger challenge than the Scottish champions. The priority is the league but next in line is the Scottish Cup. It's a huge competition to be involved in.

    "If we are going to get anything we will need to work extremely hard and things will need to go for us."

  66. Post update

    Rangers 3-0 Kilmarnock

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Ibrox

    Kris Boyd and Nicky Law

    "Rangers ease into the fifth round, and the introductions of Kris Boyd and Nicky Clark brought some liveliness to their attack in the second half. For Kilmarnock, the familiar problem was the lack of a cutting edge up front. The Rangers manager Ally McCoist looked particularly pleased with Kris Boyd's finish, perhaps in the hope that it might spark a run of goals for the striker."

  67. Post update

    Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton last started in a 1-1 home draw against Motherwell on 21 September. He takes the place of Charlie Mulgrew, who picked up a rib injury against Salzburg on Thursday.

  68. Post update

    Over to Tynecastle now, I've given you the line-ups already and there are two changes for Hearts with Adam Eckersley replacing the injured Kevin McHattie at left-back and James Keatings in to lead the attack.

    Celtic make three changes from their last outing, with John Guidetti and James Forrest back and a rare start for Nir Bitton.


    Rangers 3-0 Kilmarnock

    A very comfortable win for Rangers and a third Premiership scalp for Ally McCoist's men this season. Nicky Law cracked in two great goals and Kris Boyd made an immediate impact from the bench.

  70. Post update

    Josh Magennis drives into the Rangers penalty box but there is to be no late consolation for the visitors as Lee McCulloch blocks the striker's shot. From the corner, Lee Miller fires in an effort which is hacked away by Fraser Aird.

  71. Post update

    It's all flicks and tricks from Rangers now, with Kilmarnock willing the referee to sound the final whistle to put them out of their misery. The majority of the 14,412 crowd will go away very happy indeed.


    Lewis MacLeod gets a warm round of applause as he trots off to be replaced by Dean Shiels for the last four minutes of regulation time.

  73. GOAL

    Rangers 3-0 Kilmarnock (Law)

    Game over. Lewis MacLeod drives Rangers forward, Richard Foster lays the ball off and here comes Nicky Law to thump a beauty into the top corner from 25 yards.


    Kilmarnock make their last change as Josh Magennis comes on for Tope Obedayi, He has less than 10 minutes to make himself a hero.

  75. Post update

    Lewis MacLeod and Mark Connolly clatter into each other in a crunch of knees against ribs. Both men look a bit bewildered and winded but they are able to continue.


    Hearts: Alexander, Paterson, Ozturk, Gomis, Walker, Holt, King, Pallardo, Keatings, McKay, Eckersley. Subs: Hamilton, Robinson, Buaben, Buchanan, McGhee, McKirdy, Flanagan.

    Celtic: Gordon; Matthews, Ambrose, van Dijk, Izaguirre; Brown, Bitton; Forrest, Johansen, Stokes; Guidetti. Subs: Zaluska, Commons, Tonev, Griffiths, Kayal, O'Connell, McGregor.

  77. Post update

    A slick move from Rangers sends Nicky Clark scurrying into the penalty area and just as he's about to pull the trigger in comes Ross Barbour with a well-timed sliding tackle.


    Kilmarnock midfielder Sammy Clingan takes out Richard Foster with a late challenge and gets his name taken by referee Brian Colvin.

  79. Post update

    Kris Boyd now has 15 goals for Rangers in 16 games against Kilmarnock. Not bad at all...

  80. GOAL

    Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock (Boyd)

    Kris Boyd's second touch gets the ball under control as Craig Samson flaps at a corner and his third results in a goal as his shot on the turn rolls in at the near post.

  81. Post update

    Kris Boyd's first touch against his old club sets up Lewis MacLeod for a shot on the edge of the box and Ross Brbour makes a good flying block.


    Rangers change their strikers, with Kris Boyd and Nicky Clark replacing Jon Daly and Kenny Miller.

  83. Post update

    Lewis MacLeod has another blast at goal as the ball falls to him 20 yards out but again his first-time effort travels high over the crossbar.

  84. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Ibrox

    "(Rangers assistant coach) Kenny McDowall debating some offside decisions with the assistant referee. Not many clear-cut chances in this half, and the scrappiness will suit Kilmarnock because it keeps the game open and in the balance."

  85. Post update

    There a kerfuffle in the Killie penalty box as Kenny Miller heads the ball on and Jon Daly lunges after it as goalkeeper Craig Samson dives to smother. The custodian eventually gathers and play is stopped as the lineman's flag flutters for some unknown reason.


    Kilmarnock make a double change, with Jamie Hamill and Robbie Muirhead replacing Craig Slater and Alexei Eremenko.

  87. Post update

    Fraser Aird does well to dance down the right wing and his dinked cross falls for Lewis MacLeod at the far post. The Rangers midfielder goes for the spectacular volley but gets it all wrong as the ball flies into the top tier of Copland Road Stand.

  88. Post update

    Tope Obedayi is much livelier now as he breaks into the penalty box but Lee McCulloch uses all of his experience to block the Kilmarnock forward's progress.


    Rory McKenzie picks up the first caution of the day as he rugby tackles Richard Foster near the halfway line. The Killie winger was on his knees after losing possession and had a cheeky tug at the heels of the Rangers full-back.

  90. Post update

    Kilmarnock enjoy a wee spell of pressure, with the hosts sitting deep, but the visitors are yet to test goalkeeper Steve Simonsen.

  91. Post update

    Bilel Mohsni comes in for some stick but the Rangers defender has not put a foot wrong today and gets a round of applause for a cool header back to keeper Steve Simonsen.

  92. Post update

    Tope Obedayi jets past Nicky Law to launch a Kilmarnock attack but puts the brakes on when faced with three defenders and nothing in the way of support. He then crumples to the ground as the ball is stripped away from him with ease by Ian Black.

  93. Post update

    Rangers get the second half up and running.

  94. Post update

    TV footage of Ross Barbour's challenge on Kenny Miller has been studied in detail during the interval and the Kilmarnock defender might just have got a toe on the ball before clattering through the Rangers striker.

  95. Post update

    These two have met in three Scottish Cup finals: 1960 - Rangers won 2-0 thanks to a double from Jimmy Millar. 1929 - Kilmarnock ran out 2-0 winners at Hampden in front of over 114,000 fans. 1898 - Rangers won 2-0 at the Old Hampden.

  96. Post update

    What can Kilmarnock do to get back into this tie? Chris Johnston are Robbie Muirhead exciting but erratic youngsters on the bench. Manager Allan Johnston will want more from experienced playmaker Alexei Eremenko, who has been very sluggish.

  97. Post update

    The Rangers quartet in midfield have been well on top, with Ian Black and Nicky Law bossing matters in the middle of the park and Fraser Aird and Lewis MacLeod lively on the flanks. Killie centre forward Lee Miller has barely touched the ball.

  98. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Ibrox

    "On balance of play, Rangers deserve their lead, but this Scottish Cup tie is still evenly balanced. The home side have looked more threatening, while Kilmarnock's attacks have been sporadic, yet the wingers of both teams have enjoyed some success on the flanks. It's a decent game in front of a very low crowd at Ibrox."


    Rangers 1-0 Kilmarnock

    Rangers are in front thanks to a strike from Nicky Law and the hosts are well worth their lead.

  100. Post update

    Kilmarnock are left exposed at the back, with Kenny Miller joined by Nicky Law and Jon Daly on a counter-attack. The striker picks out the latter at the edge of the box but the big centre forward takes an age to get the ball under control and his shot is a tame one, easily stopped by Craig Samson.

  101. Post update

    A neat lay-off from Jon Daly sends Kenny Miller scurrying forward but Mark Connolly makes a good crunching tackle to halt the Rangers striker's progress. The visitors break and win another corner but, again, the delivery from Alexei Eremenko fails to trouble the home defence.

  102. Post update

    A couple of corners for Killie and both are disappointing, with defender Bilel Mohsni nodding away from the near post area each time.

  103. Post update


    Nicky Law fires Rangers in front at Ibrox

    Here's an image of Nicky Law firing the hosts in front after 19 minutes. It's been all Rangers since then...

  104. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Ibrox

    "Allan Johnston is now the much more animated of the two managers on the touchline. Nicky Law's goal has provided Rangers with a surge of confidence and momentum, while Kilmarnock cannot get the ball often enough to their dangerous players, Eremenko, Obadeyi and McKenzie."

  105. Post update

    A shot on target from Killie. However, it's not one to get too excited about as Ross Barbour's long-range effort bounces straight into the arms of Steve Simonsen.

  106. Post update

    Rangers continue to make all of the running as Lewis MacLeod nutmegs Ross Barbour on the halfway line to start another attack. The move culminates with Ian Black's raking shot from distance sliding past the post with keeper Craig Samson at full-stretch.

  107. Join the debate at #bbcscotfootball

    Derek Craig on Twitter: "Maybe you should focus on discussing the match rather than the fans there. Considering its on TV attendances do drop #bbcscotfootball."

  108. Post update

    Kilmarnock are all over the place at the back now, looking very jittery time every time Rangers come forward.

  109. Post update

    Lewis MacLeod catches a shot flush but it's straight at keeper Craig Samson. Moments later, Rangers are charging forward again as Kenny Miller hares into the penalty box. Ross Barbour slides into a challenge and does not appear to get much - if anything - on the ball. The home striker cannot believe it when play is waved on.

  110. GOAL

    Rangers 1-0 Kilmarnock (Law)

    Kilmarnock fail to clear from a long throw-in and Fraser Aird is able to lay the ball into the path of Nicky Law on the edge of the penalty box. The Rangers midfielder hammers in a shot, which takes a deflection off a defender and whistles into the top corner.

  111. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Ibrox

    "Neither side has taken command of this game yet, but Fraser Aird for Rangers and Rory McKenzie for Kilmarnock have been prominent. Wing-play could settle what has been an even encounter so far at Ibrox."

  112. Post update

    Rangers v Kilmarnock

    I told you there were lots of empty seats at Ibrox...

  113. Post update

    Kilmarnock threaten for the first time as Rory McKenzie skips past Bilel Mohsni to set up Alexei Eremenko. The big Finnish midfield turns to shoot but his effort is deflected wide by the outstretched foot of defender Lee McCulloch.

  114. Post update

    First corner of the day goes the way of Rangers, as Mark Connelly nods out a Fraser Aird cross. Lee McCulloch darts to the front post to connect with a header from the set-piece but the ball flies high and wide.

  115. Post update

    Much better from Chris Chantler this time as the Killie full-back prevents Fraser Aird from getting in a cross. The home side have made the brighter start, with Aird and Lewis MacLeod to the fore.

  116. Post update

    Nicky Law drives into the penalty area from the right, leaving Chris Chantler behind, but the Rangers midfielder's low delivery is blocked by Mark Connolly, who completes the clearance with a mighty hoof up the park.

  117. Post update

    Richard Foster makes good progress down the left and nips a pass to Lewis MacLeod inside the penalty box. The Rangers midfielder takes a touch then skids a shot wide of the far post.

  118. KICK-OFF

    Kilmarnock, in an orange change kit, get the action started. There are a lot of empty seats at Ibrox...

  119. Post update

    The teams are in the tunnel and Kilmarnock skipper Manuel Pascali is sporting a fine moustache in support of a good cause.

  120. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Ibrox

    "Small crowd expected at Ibrox, so no reason for Kilmarnock to feel inhibited by the atmosphere and Allan Johnston has picked a creative side with Eremenko and Slater in midfield. The home side will be looking for a positive reaction to last weekend's defeat to Hearts. This Scottish Cup tie is finely balanced."

  121. Post update

    Killie gaffer Allan Johnston played one season with Rangers, scoring three goals in 2000/01. That equalled his tally at Ibrox in one game for Hearts in 1996, his first career hat-trick. He has had success as a manager on the south side of Glasgow, steering Queen of the South to a Challenge Cup quarter-final win after a penalty shoot-out.

    Scott Garroch ‏on Twitter: "Killie have never won at Ibrox in the cup? You might want to rethink that #bbcscotfootball"

    Rumbled already! That should say never beaten Rangers at Ibrox. Kilmarnock did, of course, lift the trophy in Govan in 1997, beating Falkirk in the final. Apologies all round...

  123. Post update

    Rangers manager Ally McCoist (talking on Friday) "I think we've proved we can compete with the Premiership teams this season, so we must go and do it again.

    "We've beaten both Inverness and St Johnstone, which were both very difficult games and hard fought games - but I think we deserved to win them both.

    "I think the boys have proved they can compete at that level with no problem at all."

  124. Post update


    Rangers strike Kris Boyd

    It's fair to say striker Kris Boyd's second spell at Rangers is not going quite as smoothly as his second stint with Kilmarnock. The 31-year-old has found the net eight times this term but and has scored just twice in the league and is dropped for the second game running. He was in great nick last season, banging in 22 goals for the Ayrshire side in the top flight.

    Before Killie fans get too carried away, I should point out that their last Scottish Cup success against Rangers was in the 1938 semi-final at Hampden and they have never won at Ibrox in this tournament.

    Kilmarnock are stuttering after a fine start to the campaign and have lost their last four matches in the Premiership, conceding 11 goals and scoring just twice.

    But the visitors, who last won the Scottish Cup in 1997, are going for a hat-trick of wins in this fixture, having won the previous two meetings. Dean Shiels, on the Rangers bench today, scored the only goal at Ibrox when the teams last met in February 2012.

    Rangers may have lost ground in the Championship race with their 2-0 loss at Tynecastle last weekend but Ally McCoist' side have been going well in the cups this season. Inverness CT and St Johnstone were beaten at Ibrox to set up the much-anticipated League Cup semi-final with Celtic, while Wednesday sees them take on Alloa for a place in the Petrofac Training Cup final.

    Scotland boss Gordon Strachan was at Dens Park and Ainslie Park yesterday. What are the chances of a couple of Spartans lads getting a call for the game against Gibraltar in March?

    With five all-Premiership ties played yesterday, Aberdeen, Hamilton, Motherwell and Ross County have already bitten the dust, while Inverness and St Mirren will replay on Tuesday.
