It means the Premiership's top three sides have been handed home ties in the quarter-finals to be played over the weekend of 4/5 March.

The other hosts will be either Hearts, sitting fourth, or last year's winners after the Edinburgh rivals drew 0-0 at Tynecastle on Sunday.

Championship leaders Hibs also played their neighbours at the same stage last season, winning a replay at Easter Road, and went on to beat Rangers in the final.

Last season's runners-up won the last of this weekend's fifth-round ties, edging out Championship outfit Greenock Morton 2-1 in Glasgow.
