Goodbye for now

Talking of Glasgow derbies, join us again on Friday as Partick Thistle host champions Celtic in the Premiership.

But, for now, I'm signing off after another long and thrilling night of Scottish football.

Tasty quartet of ties

The reward for a Dundee derby win is a difficult home tie against holders Celtic for Neil McCann's Dark Blues.

Hibs will be pleased to be drawn against the only Championship side left in the competition, albeit Livingston are unbeaten so far this season.

Last year's runners-up, Aberdeen, have it tough again, away to Premiership rivals Motherwell.

But the tie of the round is arguably at Firhill, where Partick Thistle, who swept aside St Johnstone last night, host a Glasgow derby against a Rangers side who also found their shooting boots tonight.

FULL-TIME Ross County 2-3 Motherwell

That last-ditch miss by Jamie Lindsay proves crucial as Ross MacLean's composed finish in the second half of extra time is enough for Motherwell to secure that final place in the League Cup quarter-finals.

Stephen Robinson's side will host Premiership rivals Aberdeen in the next round.


Ross County 2-3 Motherwell

Trevor Carson makes an outstanding save from close range to deny Jamie Lindsay and County a dramatic equaliser.

Difficult whoever we get - McInnes

FT: Hamilton Academical 0-1 Aberdeen

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "It was a difficult game.

"Hamilton have a brilliant attitude. They make the game untidy at times and don't give you a minute.

"But I thought, once we got the goal, that settled us down.

"Hamilton kept us on our toes until the end.

"By and large, pleased to get a clean sheet and win at a difficult venue.

"Away from home against either Ross County or Motherwell will be difficult again."

"I thought to a man we were absolutely brilliant.

"I am delighted we have a home tie, but we've drawn the strongest side in the country.

"We enjoy this and tomorrow we concentrate on playing Hamilton next."

Lots of positives for United boss

FT: Dundee 2-1 Dundee United

Dundee United manager Ray McKinnon on BBC Radio Scotland: "I think the first 30 minutes, Dundee were better than us.

"We moved our players around and we scored a very good goal.

"The second half was more even, but we have undone ourselves by slack defending.

"We had chances, but we lost by fine margins.

"Congratulations to Dundee, but we can take lots of positives from this."

FULL-TIME Dundee 2-1 Dundee United

Two fabulous goals give Dundee quick revenge over their city rivals, who won the penalty shoot-out at the same venue to top their qualifying group.

A fully-deserved win it was and not just because of the quality of the goals from Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Paul McGowan.

It's another 30 minutes in Dingwall as it finishes all square and we head into extra-time.

Good work from Grant Gillespie as the midfielder creates space for himself, but his shot is just past the post.

Hamilton's best chance of the second half so far.

Dundee 2-1 Dundee United

United squander a great chance for a second equaliser.

Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain and defender Kevin Holt get into all sorts of bother under pressure from Paul McMullan, who helped them along with a bit of a push before setting up Billy King.

However, the winger fails to find the net for a second time tonight as he drags his shot wide of the unguarded net from 15 yards.

Great chance for Ross County's Alex Schalk from an Andrew Davies pass, but the forward puts it over the bar from six yards.


Dundee 1-1 Dundee United

Dundee's Roarie Deacon goes into the referee's book and it is a strange one.

Another player gets his maiden Rangers goal.

Daniel Candeias fires in a free-kick to extend the hosts' lead.

Dundee 1-1 Dundee United

Roarie Deacon shows great skill to prevent the ball crossing the by-line before weaving past his marker and firing a drive that was heading for goal if it had not deflected off a defender.
