The Hoops earned a home tie on the weekend of February 8/9 after their 7-0 demolition of Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.

The Parkhead showdown is the only all-Premiership clash although another could be on the cards at Tannadice if St Mirren get the better of Queen of the South in next week's replay.

Albion Rovers' reward for pulling off the shock of the fourth round - a 1-0 victory over Premiership side Motherwell - is a home tie against Stenhousemuir while Alloa, who saw off local rivals Stirling Albion 3-2 at the weekend, have another home tie against Championship side Dumbarton.

Former Rangers striker Kenny Miller conducted the draw at the SFA's Hampden HQ and he answered the prayers of his old team-mates when handing them a home tie against the winners of the Ayr United v Dunfermline replay.

Reflecting on the draw, Rangers striker Nicky Clark told Sky Sports News: "We were hoping for a home tie and we were lucky enough to get that but it will be a tough game.

"Either of those teams will come to Ibrox to try and cause an upset so we will have to make sure we are prepared for that.

"We have already beaten them both in the league this season so that gives us a bit of confidence, but we have a lot of confidence just now anyway as we are doing really well in the league and hopefully we can take that into the Scottish Cup."

The Draw:

Alloa Athletic v Dumbarton

Clyde or Stranraer v Inverness

Hibernian v Raith Rovers

Albion Rovers v Stenhousemuir

Brechin or Forfar v St Johnstone

Celtic v Aberdeen

Dundee United v Queen of the South or St Mirren

Rangers v Ayr or Dunfermline

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
