Celtic At Cappielow... Hopefully

Morton have been drawn at home to Celtic in the 4th round of the Active Nation Scottish Cup - but we'll have to beat Dumbarton in Saturday's 3rd round replay to get there first.

Today's draw was screened live on Sky Sports News (pictured). Morton were drawn out by former Rangers defender Richard Gough, while Celtic were drawn out by recently retired Celtic and Scotland defender John Kennedy.

Morton and Celtic last faced each other in the quarter-final of the same competition on the 8th March 1999. On that occasion a Celtic team including Henrik Larsson, Paul Lambert, Craig Burley and Mark Viduka ran out 3-0 winners. Viduka scored two, in what was his first start for the Parkhead side, while Celtic legend Larsson netted the other after a mistake by man of the match Paul Fenwick.

Sky Sports have chosen Hamilton Accies versus Rangers as the match they want to show live, so our tie will be played on Saturday 9th January 2010.

The full draw is as follows:

Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Motherwell
Hamilton Academical v Rangers
Greenock Morton or Dumbarton v Celtic
Hibernian v Irvine Meadow
St. Mirren v Cowdenbeath or Alloa Athletic
Raith Rovers or Peterhead v Airdrie United
