Scottish Cup draw
There are two all-Premiership ties in this year's fourth round

Scottish Cup holders Celtic will start their defence of the trophy against League One Airdrieonians.

Brendan Rodgers' side, who defeated Motherwell in last season's final, will welcome the Lanarkshire club to Celtic Park in the fourth round of the competition.

Airdrieonians, who sit fifth in the League One table, beat Dumbarton 3-0 to book their place.

The ties will be played on the weekend of 19 January next year.

There are two all-Premiership meetings with Hearts taking on Livingston and St Johnstone hosting Hamilton Academical.

Elsewhere, Rangers will go to Cowdenbeath in Steven Gerrard's first Scottish Cup match, 2016 winners Hibernian host Elgin City while last year's beaten finalists Motherwell will go up against Ross County in a repeat of last week's Challenge Cup quarter-final when their colts lost 2-1 to the Championship side.
