Ifs, Buts, and Maybes... Morton Draw Dunfermline

If Morton manage to beat Celtic in the rescheduled Scottish Cup 4th round tie then we will face Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park in the 5th round.

But the Pars are currently the source of much controversy after they fielded the ineligible Calum Woods in their 7-1 win over Stenhousemuir yesterday. Woods was suspended after receiving two bookings in last year's competition.

The SFA will hold an emergency meeting to discuss the situation on Monday. The most likely outcome is that the clubs will be ordered to replay the match. The Fife club are also certain to be fined for their mistake.

The draw for the 5th round was carried out by Jimmy Calderwood and Derek Ferguson immediately after the Hamilton Accies versus Rangers tie, which was screened live on Sky Sports today. The ties are set to be played on the weekend of Saturday 6 and Sunday 7, February.

The full draw was as follows:

Dunfermline Athletic v Morton or Celtic
Forfar Athletic or St Johnstone v Dundee United
Hibernian v Edinburgh City or Montrose
Livingston or Dundee v Ayr United or Brechin City
Raith Rovers or Airdrie United v Aberdeen
Kilmarnock or Falkirk v Inverness CT or Motherwell
St. Mirren v Hamilton Academical or Rangers
Ross County or Inverurie LW v Albion Rovers or Stirling Albion
