No date has been set for the tie, due to Ibrox being used for the Commonwealth Games, but the other matches - including Hearts hosting Annan Athletic - will take place on Saturday, July 26.

In the Northern Section, holders Raith Rovers entertain fellow-Fifers Dunfermline while new Falkirk boss Peter Houston begins his time in charge with a short trip to East Stirlingshire.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist believes his side could not have been dealt tougher opponents saying: "It's an incredible draw really when you think about it, but at the same time it's a great game and a big game.

"We'll be playing our two Edinburgh rivals in the early stages of the season and who would have thought that would be the case even just a couple of months from the end of last term?

"We definitely want to do well in all the competitions, that's what Rangers have been doing for well over 100 years. They go into every competition to win but our priority will always be a league," he told the club's official website.

Hibs counterpart Stubbs said: "I'm really excited about the draw. Facing Rangers at Ibrox will be a massive game and a great early test for us so early in the season."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
