The Dundee clubs are the story of the draw. So at least there will be one Dundee Derby next season. Also a great draw for Highland League Champions Buckie Thistle, probably the best draw they could get for getting big away crowds at their games.

Just trying to give fans 'Summer Football'. They also now have the final at the end of November, which works really well in my opinion because then the 'big clubs' don't have the League Cup and Scottish Cup overlapping. It also condenses the competition and doesn't feel like it goes on for ages.

I watched it and there were some terrible decisions made by Hearts players. Dunfermline much the better side and there was one occasion where a ball was clearly going out for a corner but Nowak (Hearts player) decides to attempt a volley for a cross and it ends up going out for a goal-kick. There were no Dunfermline players around him either xD

Rangers beat Dunfermline 6-0 to advance along with Dundee, Aberdeen and Motherwell.

The quarter final draw looks unlikely to throw up any shocks:

Hibernian v Livingston

Dundee v Celtic

Partick Thistle v Rangers

Motherwell v Aberdeen

Ties take place on 19 September. Celtic away so they might have trouble? Reaching there for sure...

Typical winger loses concentration after a corner, loses his man and Celtic are 1-0 up. Hibs are sitting off Celtic and allowing them to play the game at a slow tempo. They just got ran off the pitch midweek, why Hibs aren't trying to raise the tempo is beyond me. Seems they are just happy to stand off and accept their fate.

another for Celtic, another for Lustig, another poor error from the keeper who should be doing better.

Not seen Hibs much but out of the times I have, this is the worst I've seen them. They look so slow and laboured.

The Hibs team are overrated since their draw at Celtic Park, against a Celtic team that was resting several players. They are a decent team, but lack quality in a lot of areas still.

Stokes isn't as effective as a lone striker and they could really do with some with the energy and pace of Simon Murray playing ahead of him. They played this same team last week against Aberdeen, and it was an easy day for their centre backs with no one really threatening to run past or away from them.
