Hopkin unhappy with referee after Livi loss

FT: Hibernian 3-2 Livingston

Livingston manager David Hopkin told BBC Scotland: "I think the way we played, I made five changes to the team tonight and the boys came in and did me proud. I knew they would. I knew we would give Hibs a tough game and I thought we deserved more out of the game.

"At 2-1 Bobby Madden decides to give a free-kick which I still don’t know what he’s given it for, then the free-kick has gone through nobody and he gives a corner. And the second goal, the equaliser comes from it. So some of Bobby’s (Madden) decisions tonight were a wee bit strange I thought."

On the penalty incident: "I just think he’s going away from goal. I think Todorov actually got a wee nick on the ball. It’s nothing and I just think it’s not even a coming together. But you know when you come to Easter Road, you’re a smaller side and these decisions go against you and it's put Hibs into the next round of the cup."

Caixinha happy with Rangers' display

FT: Partick Thistle 1-3 Rangers

Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha, speaking to BT Sport, looks a happy man after their 3-1 extra-time victory at Thistle, despite seeing Bruno Alves and Declan John depart with knocks ahead of Saturday's Old Firm clash with Celtic.

"i really liked the performance - we created a lot of chances to win the game earlier.

"We had to make four substitutions which shook the team a little bit, but I think Lee [Hodson] and Ross [McCrorie] did very well. I think that young boy [McCrorie] is going to be the future of this country at centre-half.

"I think in a difficult moment at the start of extra-time, we had our best moments and killed the game. We need to cool down as a team sometimes when the second goal isn't coming."

Lennon delighted with Hibs' character

Hibernian 3-2 Livingston

Hibs manager Neil Lennon is a far happier man after his side's 3-2 win over Livingston than he was after their 2-2 draw at home to Motherwell on Saturday.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Lennon said: “We’ve come from a goal down twice, which shows marvellous character, and we’re in the semi-finals.

“We played very well and deserved to win the game. Even before Livi got the goal, we could’ve been two or three up. Our football at times was outstanding and we scored two beautiful goals."

FULL-TIME - Partick Thistle 1-3 Rangers

Daniel Candeias wastes another chance in the final minute of extra time, slicing wide, but it matters not.

Pedro Caixinha's side were wasteful in normal time, but two cracking strikes in extra time see them through to the semi-finals, and onward toward a first Premiership meeting of the season with Celtic on Saturday.

CLOSE!

Partick Thistle 1-3 Rangers

That would have put some extra gloss on what is surely now a convincing Rangers victory. Right-back James Tavernier weaves his way into the area and fires in a shot that Thistle keeper Ryan Scully just gets a hand to and diverts it across goal.

YELLOW CARD

Partick Thistle 1-3 Rangers

Thistle's frustration starting to show, Christie Elliott earning a yellow card after hacking away repeatedly at Rangers' Graham Dorrans.

HALF-TIME in EXTRA TIME - Partick Thistle 1-3 Rangers

That quick-fire Rangers double in the first period of extra time has taken the wind out of Partick Thistle.

Can the hosts find some inspiration in this second 15 minutes, or is this already done and dusted?

GOAL - Partick Thistle 1-3 Rangers (Herrera)

That should see Rangers into the semi-finals.

Delightful build-up play from the visitors ends with Daniel Candeias sending the ball back across goal, and Eduardo Herrera's superb back-flick - on the volley - arrows into the bottom corner. Sweet finish.

GOAL - Partick Thistle 1-2 Rangers (Candeias)

Great finish from Daniel Candeias, who picks the ball up on the edge of the box, turns sharply and smashes a left-foot shot past Thistle keeper Ryan Scully and inside his near post.

Fourth sub for Rangers

Hibs through to semi-finals

It's all over at Easter Road, Anthony Stokes' penalty with six minutes left proving the winner. But kudos to the Championship club, who pushed Hibs all the way.

FULL-TIME - Partick Thistle 1-1 Rangers

Extra-time at Firhill

Well, well, well. Rangers seemed to be easing to a single-goal victory at Firhill, but Thistle's hopes of a first win over their near neighbours for 24 years remains alive.

We have another half-an-hour to play. And if they're still level after that, a penalty shoot-out.

GOAL - Partick Thistle 1-1 Rangers (Doolan)

Conor Sammon wins a header at the back post and nods it down to substitute Kris Doolan, who spins away from Fabio Cardoso and fires high into the net.

Extra-time looming at Firhill.

The home side starting to pile on the pressure here as Steven Whittaker bends an effort just wide before Anthony Stokes knocks a shot wide.

Stick or twist? Will Hibs boss Neil Lennon put his whole coat on before full-time?

CLOSE!

Partick Thistle 0-1 Rangers

Double chance for the hosts. Danny Devine's low shot is well blocked by Jak Alnwick, and Kris Doolan can't react quickly enough as he volleys the rebound over.

Nervous times for Rangers fans.

Injury worries for Gers before Old Firm clash?

Partick Thistle 0-1 Rangers

Concern for Rangers fans ahead of Saturday's first Old Firm meeting of the season with Celtic as experienced Portuguese centre-back Bruno Alves is taken off and given an ice pack to put on his lower leg.

Ross McCrorie, 19, is on for his senior debut. Moments later, Lee Hodson is also sent on for left-back Declan John, who appears to be getting strapping to his right thigh.

Can Rangers see this out, or can Thistle find an equaliser? We have 11 minutes of normal time left.

More changes at Easter Road

Hibernian 2-2 Livingston

Daniel Mullen is on for Keaghan Jacobs for Livingston, who are still more than holding their own at the home of their Premiership opponents.

Livi bring on sub Mullin

It's been coming... and finally Rangers have the breakthrough. A Daniel Candeias corner from the left is met sweetly by Carlos Pena, whose twisting header is planted past Ryan Scully into the far corner.

CLOSE!

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

He's got to score! A deflection puts Alfredo Morelos clear through on goal, but the Colombian striker drags his shot narrowly wide of the far post.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Lovely play from Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, who nicks it through Niall Keown's legs on the left by-line, but his prodded cross is cut out by danny Devine at the near post.

Good pressure from the visitors, but they still haven't created another clear-cut chance.

Hibernian 2-2 Livingston

We're belatedly back under way at Easter Road too, by the way...

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Nice link-up play between Daniel Candeias and James Tavernier down the right flank, but the latter's ball across is cut out before it reaches its intended target.

More frustration for Rangers.

Firhill for nil-nils?

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

The teams are back out, Alfredo Morelos has the ball on the centre spot, and we're back under way at Firhill.

Few chances at Firhill

HT: Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Alasdair Lamont

BBC Sport Scotland

For all their dominance of possession, Rangers have only called Thistle keeper Ryan Scully into action once, to save from Alfredo Morelos.

On the flip side, Thistle have seen much less of the ball but Connor Sammon has twice seen the whites of Jak Alnwick's eyes, only for the Rangers stopper to deny him on both occasions.

HALF-TIME - Hibernian 2-2 Livingston

The last chance of a rip-roaring first half falls to Hibs left-back Lewis Stevenson, but his 25-yarder flies high and wide.

HALF-TIME - Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Chances at both ends at Firhill, but no breakthrough as yet. There'll be extra-time if it stays that way after 90 minutes, and potentially penalties...

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

More pressure from the visitors at Firhill, but James Tavernier's low ball across the face of the six-yard box finds no takers.

GREAT SAVE!

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Partick Thistle striker Conor Sammon ghosts into space at the back post and his header is blocked at close range by Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick

CLOSE!

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Conor Sammon is not known for his quick feet but the burly Thistle striker does a neat little step-over as he drives into the Rangers penalty area on the left flank and brings a smart save from keeper Jak Alnwick at his near post.

Hibernian 2-2 Livingston

Brian McLauchlin

BBC Sport Scotland at Easter Road

What a cracker of a game! Again the Hibernian defence is far from blameless but the finish by Raffaele De Vita was stunning as he turned to whip the ball into the roof of the net off the underside of the crossbar.

GOAL - Hibernian 2-2 Livingston (Boyle)

The sweet life doesn't last long for Livi as Martin Boyle drives into the box and blasts the ball under Neil Alexander to square it again.

La Dolce Vita

GOAL - Hibernian 1-2 Livingston (De Vita)

Rangers building momentum

Partick Thistle 0-0 Rangers

Alasdair Lamont

BBC Sport Scotland

Alfredo Morelos comes to life when the ball is in his vicinity and wants to shoot anytime the goal is in his sights. As Rangers' pressure builds, they're beginning to create chances and Thistle, who'd looked well organised, are just beginning to creak slightly.
