Scottish Cup holders Hearts have been drawn against their city rivals Hibernian, in what is a rematch of May’s cup final. They will face one another at Easter Road in the fourth round of the cup to give Pat Fenlon’s side a chance to get some revenge for their 5-1 hammering they received at Hampden.

If that rivalry wasn’t enough, the draw also saw highland rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ross County paired against one another, while First Division title contenders Partick Thistle and Dunfermline have also been drawn against.

SPL leaders Celtic will play host to either Inverurie Loco Works or Arbroath, while Third Division leaders Rangers will face Elgin City at Ibrox.

There was an all-SPL clash between Aberdeen and Motherwell, while St.Johnstone will travel to Cowdenbeath for their fourth round tie.
