Scottish Cup Fifth Round Draw

The Scottish Cup Fifth Round Draw will be live from Hampden Park on Monday

The William Hill Scottish Cup Fifth Round Draw will take place on Monday 11th January at 18:15.

With some non-league and lower league sides still able to dream of the big draw against Celtic or Rangers there promises to be plenty of tension before the draw. The draw will be made by former Rangers legend Brian Laudrup and darts World Champion, Gary Anderson. It is live on Sky Sports News.

After Hearts knocked out Aberdeen the remaining Premiership clubs will be keen to avoid the Tynecastle side. Particularly as they seemingly have fate on their side having reached the final in 1976, 1986, 1996, 2006 and now 2016?

But for some of the smaller clubs left in, like Hamilton’s conquerers Annan Athletic, a trip to the capital could be a day to remember. Not to mention a bit of a pay day for the club’s board. There is of course the potential for an Edinburgh derby with Hibernian having seen off Raith Rovers.

The draw may even result in a Glasgow derby with all three clubs still in the draw. Partick Thistle had the hardest task in seeing off St Mirren before Rangers and Celtic dispatched Cowdenbeath and Stranraer respectively with relative ease.

There are still a number of ties to be completed after draws and postponements from the 4th round on Saturday. East Kilbride and Hutchison Vale are two of the last three non-league sides in the draw but at least one of them is guaranteed a place in the fifth round.


 

 Scottish Cup Fifth Round Draw

In the hat for the Scottish Cup fifth Round Draw there are three non-league sides in total, East Kilbride, Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale and Linlithgow Rose.

There are only two Scottish League 2 sides remaining in Annan and Stirling Albion. Scottish League 1 also has two representatives in Dunfermline and Forfar.

Hibs, Rangers, Falkirk and Greenock Morton will join the other Scottish Championship qualifiers Dumbarton.

The Scottish Premiership clubs remaining are Celtic, Hearts, Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle, Dundee Utd, Dundee, Ross County, Inverness and Motherwell

The final draw will be updated in full on this page once it is complete. From there fans can start dreaming of that away day of away days at Hampden in May.


Scottish Cup Fifth Round Draw In Full

There are three really appealing draws from this Scottish Cup fifth round draw. Either East Kilbride or Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale have hot the jackpot with a home tie to the champions, Celtic.

There will be an Edinburgh derby this year and it will be in the Scottish Cup fifth round as Hearts host their rivals Hibernian.

Rangers are hosting Premiership opposition again when they will hope to exorcise the ghost of St Johnstone. Kilmarnock, St Johnstone’s conquerors ironically, will be the visiting side and their away form is better than their home form.
