That's it from me then folks, thanks very much for your company and be sure to join us again on Tuesday night when Inverness Caley Thistle face Raith Rovers in a rearranged Scottish Cup quarter final.

It's been some day of Scottish Cup quarter-final drama in Edinburgh and Dundee.

Hibernian booked their semi-final spot with a 4-0 win over Berwick Rangers, before Dundee United and Celtic drew 1-1 at Tannadice in as dramatic a game as you'll see in a while.

The semi-final draw was also made and Hibs will face Falkirk, with Inverness CT or Raith Rovers meeting Dundee United or Celtic.

DUNDEE UNITED MANAGER JACKIE MCNAMARA

"It was strange that the initial challenge didn't get dealt with by the referee. The initial challenge on Nadir was a bad one.

"I feel sorry for Paton, but I'm proud of the players, how they responded.

"Absolutely (we will appeal the red card) as Paul Paton was not involved in the incident.

"I don't think he (Aidan Connolly) dived. I think Anthony Stokes' thigh has put him down."

CELTIC MANAGER RONNY DEILA

"We should've won. We had the chances to win but sometimes you're not effective enough.

"I haven't seen the first sending offs, but the other one is very clear.

"It was a dive (United penalty) in my opinion.

"We have to be happy we are still in it and we're going to have some exciting games coming up."

CELTIC STRIKER LEIGH GRIFFITHS

"The sending offs were a bit harsh but that was the referee's call. The penalty looked soft.

"After Paul Dixon was sent off it was one-way traffic. I was disappointed to miss the penalty but I tried to put the header in the corner and thankfully it went in.

"We went in 1-0 down and were very disappointed with that. I'm just delighted I scored and kept the team in the Cup."

The draw is made for the semi-final, with the ties to be played on the 18th and 19th of April.

SCOTTISH CUP SEMI-FINAL DRAW

Inverness Caledonian Thistle or Raith Rovers v Dundee United or Celtic

Hibernian v Falkirk

The draw for the semi-finals is imminent...

We're hoping to get some post-match reaction from Tannadice soon, and it'll be interesting to hear what the managers made of today's match.

To recap the headlines of a day of Scottish Cup quarter-final action - Hibernian saw off Berwick Rangers 4-0 at Easter Road and Dundee United drew 1-1 with Celtic at Tannadice.

Referee Craig Thomson and his team of officials are sure to be the subject of much talk tonight after their performance at Tannadice. One red card that was a clear case of mistaken identity, another that was dubious, and a contentious penalty.

We'll soon have the draw for the semi-finals, with only Falkirk and Hibernian assured of a last-four spot at this stage.

DUNDEE UNITED 1-1 CELTIC

The upshot of today's game means Celtic and Dundee United will play four times on the spin.

If there's as much drama in the next three games as there was in this one, it could be a very interesting few weeks.
