Cheerio

That's all for today folks. 

Thanks for your company and enjoy what's left of your Sunday.

The Clyde v Ayr United and Hamilton v Dunfermline replays are on Tuesday and Aberdeen take on Motherwell in the Premiership on Wednesday.

Scottish Cup holders Hibernian are holding on to the trophy after a grim battle at Tynecastle. If they can win the replay, like they did at this stage last season, then they would be big favourites against Clyde or Ayr United, although the Honest Men have picked up four Championship points from two visits to Easter Road.

Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen will all be strongly fancied to progress.

The quarter-finals will be played on the weekend of 4/5 March.

FT: Rangers 2-1 Morton

Well, I'm pretty sure Graeme Murty isn't going to be the next Rangers manager but, if this is his first and only game in charge, he can always boast a 100% record.

The former Scotland and Reading defender was thrust into the limelight after Mark Warburton's surprise exit on Friday evening.

Draw for the last eight coming up

Don't be going anywhere now since the quarter final draw will be taking place soon at Ibrox.

Alex McLeish and Malky Mackay are doing the honours and will probably be a bit better behaved than Rod Stewart last time, which is a shame...

FULL-TIME Rangers 2-1 Morton

Rangers are into the last eight of the Scottish Cup after coming from behind to beat Morton.

Martyn Waghorn knocked in the second goal for last year's beaten finalists but there were a few shaky moments at the back for the home side.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Luke Donnelly hang your head in shame! Rangers get in an almighty mess at the back with a mix up between Lee Hodson and keeper Wes Foderingham gifting the ball to Ross Forbes, who lays it off to Donnelly at the edge of the box. With Foderingham posted missing, there's a couple of defenders guarding the goal but the Morton substitute can only lift a shot over the crossbar. Criminal...

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Morton have four minutes of stoppage time to salvage this game.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Rangers have a five on three advantage on the counter-attack but Jon Toral slides a sloppy pass straight to a defender in yellow and Morton hang on.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Rangers are slowing things down now, playing a few passes in their own half until Phillipe Senderos shells the ball forward to surrender possession. There are loud groans from the home fans almost every time the big defender is involved.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

A bit tardy but Lee Hodson is on now...

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Emerson Hyndman is replaced by fellow January loan signing Jon Toral as Rangers coach Graeme Murty adds fresh legs to his midfield.

Now Rangers skipper Lee Wallace is coming off with what looks like a hamstring problem and handing the armband to Kenny Miller. Lee Hodson will take over at left-back once he's got his tracksuit off.

CLOSE!

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Morton are still in this as Jamie Lindsay fires a shot just above the junction of post and crossbar from 22 yards.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

The game is getting stretched now as Morton commit more players forward and take chances at the back. Emerson Hyndman creates room for a shot but it's straight at Derek Gaston.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

James Tavernier is booked for a late challenge on Aidan Nesbitt after slack play from Andy Halliday leaves the Rangers full-back exposed.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Ricki Lamie is replaced by Luke Donnelly. That's a forward on for a defender. Morton are going to give it a go in the final 20 minutes.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Maybe the Championship side are starting to tire because Rangers are finding gaps with regularity now. Barrie McKay takes aim for the near post with a firm drive from a tight angle and Derek Gaston does well to keep it out.

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Morton are creaking as Martyn Waghorn finds more room behind the visiting defence and draws a good save from Derek Gaston with a firm strike.

CLOSE!

Rangers 2-1 Morton

Michael O'Halloran comes off the home bench to replace Jason Holt.

Rangers have been lifted by that goal as James Tavernier powers a shot straight at Derek Gaston and Phillipe Senderos sends a header inches wide from a corner.

Morton are looking a bit shaky at the back now.

GOAL Rangers 2-1 Morton

Martyn Waghorn

Martyn Waghorn is on hand to ram the ball in from close range as Jason Holt works the ball into the penalty area and Emerson Hyndman does well to knock the ball across the face of goal from the near post area.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Battle of the baldies... Phillipe Senderos gives Jim Duffy a shove as he gathers the ball from in front of the tunnel. No need for that. Just as well the Morton manager doesn't have his boots on.

CLOSE!

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn gathers a long ball over the top and spins well to fire an angled shot narrowly wide of the far post.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Great chance for Morton as Phillipe Senderos makes a horrible mess of a defensive header. Michael Tidser quickly lays the ball off for Aidan Nesbitt, who only has the keeper to beat from the edge of the box but he crashes a panicked shot high over the crossbar.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Yet another poor Morton free kick. The worst of the lot, as Ross Forbes swings the ball straight out of play with all the big men up from the back.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Andy Halliday and Jamie Lindsay thunder into a full-blooded challenge and it's the Morton man who comes off worse. He hobbles off for some treatment, while the Rangers midfielder is up and about already.

KICK-OFF

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Here we go again for the second half.

HT: Rangers 1-1 Morton

That equaliser from Kenny Miller was the veteran striker's ninth goal of the season.

HT: Rangers 1-1 Morton

Former Rangers midfielder Derek Ferguson on BBC Sportsound:

"I expected Rangers to come flying out of the traps but that didn't happen. They are over-playing too often and that allows Morton to get back into their defensive shape. They need to get one-on-one in wide areas and deliver the ball quicker."

HALF-TIME Rangers 1-1 Morton

Morton got off to a great start thanks to Michael Tidser's opener from 20 yards but Rangers didn't waste much time finding an equaliser through Kenny Miller.

The home side have been on top since, although they have not created too many clear-cut chances.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Ross Forbes tries to catch Wes Foderingham out by taking aim at the near post with a long-range free kick. There's not enough pace on it to trouble the Rangers keeper.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

We'll get two minutes of stoppage time. 

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Barrie McKay is burning past Morton players on Rangers' left flank. He's the go to ball for the home side. Jamie McDonagh is blowing hard and he's just on...

PENALTY APPEAL

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Kenny Miller thinks he's earned a spot-kick as Lee Kilday barges him over but referee Andrew Dallas just shakes his head. The Morton defender is a bit lucky to get away with that clumsy challenge.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Jamie McDonagh, middle name Cantona, is on for Morton as Michael O'Doyle is unable to shake off that earlier leg injury.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Barrie McKay is the most dangerous outlet for Rangers and he plays a great ball across the face of goal. A stretching Jason Holt is not far away.

Rangers 1-1 Morton

Michael Doyle slides in to win a great tackle on Barrie McKay but the Morton man is hurt in the process. he should be fine as he hobbles to sideline. 'Run it off, son,' is the message from the away dug out.
