  1. Post update

    That's it from us today then folks.

    It's been a huge day for Raith Rovers who recorded a famous win over Rangers to reach the last eight of the Scottish Cup, after Dundee United saw off Stranraer to also book a quarter final berth.

    Thanks again for joining us.

  2. RANGERS CARETAKER MANAGER KENNY MCDOWALL

    "Bitterly disappointed. I didn't think there was a whole lot in the game. I thought if we could get the first goal we would go on and win it.

    "Getting the goal back, we were on the front foot but we committed the cardinal sin of giving away another goal that has put us out the cup. We've conceded two goals far too easily.

    "I'm sorry for the supporters, they want to see their team winning, just like we do, and I can only apologise.

    "We're out the cup and we need to pick ourselves up and go again in the league.

    "There's a lot of pressure at the club but the players have still got to turn up and play football, that's what they get paid for."

    Raith Rovers celebrate

    It was party time for the Raith Rovers at Ibrox after their 2-1 Scottish Cup win over Rangers.

    Rangers are now out of all the cup competitions and are 19 points behind Hearts in the Championship title race, although the Ibrox men do have three games in hand.

  5. RAITH ROVERS STRIKER CHRISTIAN NADE

    "We did really well, we defended well and we knew we would get chances.

    "We knew we would surprise people today. It's a really good feeling.

    "I'm going to the gym every day to stay in shape and just try to play on as long as I can.

    "If there was 10 players in my way [at the goal] I would have put all of them in the net."

  6. Post update

    We're hoping to hear from what will no doubt be a very disappointed Rangers caretaker manager Kenny McDowall...

  7. Post update

    Remember the draw for the last eight is at 14:00 GMT on Monday, with Scotland's world darts champion Gary Anderson doing the honours.

  8. RAITH ROVERS MANAGER GRANT MURRAY

    "I'm delighted for the players and everyone involved in the club. I think in the end we deserved it. We got pinned back after taking the lead but the players kept going and they're delighted.

    "Coming to places like this is huge for any club. The players stepped up to the plate today. The whole club take credit for it.

    "We'd be delighted with a home tie in the next round but we have to just enjoy today."

  9. Post update

    Raith Rovers become the fourth Championship club to go into the Scottish Cup quarter-final draw, joining Hibernian, Queen of the South, and Falkirk.

  18. CLOSE!

    Raith Rovers have another chance through Grant Anderson but Steve Simonsen saves, before Christian Nade claims for a penalty after a challenge from Lee Wallace. Referee Bobby Madden is not interested though.

  19. Post update

    Lee McCulloch takes out Mark Stewart and is lucky to escape without a booking, which would have meant a red for the Rangers captain.

  44. Post update

    Billy Davies

    Former Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies is watching on from the stand at Ibrox. That is sure to spark speculation, with the former Ibrox player having been linked with the manager's job in the past.

  45. Post update

    Paul Watson went closest to a goal in that first half but the Raith star's header cannoned off the post and fell kindly for keeper Steve Simonsen.

  46. HALF-TIME

    Referee Bobby Madden ends the first half and we're no wiser as to who will be going into Monday's last eight draw.

  47. SUBSTITUTION

    Remie Streete comes off for Rangers with a suspected groin problem and Darren McGregor is into the action.

  48. Post update

    Raith's Ross Callachan crashes an effort in from distance but it's straight at keeper Steve Simonsen, and at the other end Lee McCulloch does the same.

  49. Post update

    Richard Foster gets another cross into the danger area and again Jon Daly is waiting at the back post but David McGurn does just enough to divert it away from the Rangers striker.

  50. Post update

    BBC Scotland pundit Allan Preston at Ibrox

    "For an experienced player at international and club level, I think Kenny Miller is trying too hard."

  51. Post update

    A lot better from Kenny Miller with his latest effort. A left foot shot from outside the box at least draws a save from David McGurn.

  52. Post update

    Ian Black's effort was well over, Kenny Miller's attempted volley was lucky to still be in the same postcode by the time it came down.

  60. Post update

    Rovers' Christian Nade has two chances in quick succession but he puts a header wide and then cracks a speculative shot miles past the post.

  61. Post update

    Nicky Law gets to the line and tries to cut the ball back to Kenny Miller but the striker misses his kick and Lee Wallace's drive is then blocked away to safety.

  62. Post update

    Raith Rovers' Ryan Conroy whips a corner across the six yard box but there's no-one there to apply the finish for the visitors. All it needed was a slight touch.

  63. Post update

    Defender Remie Streete gets on the end of Kyle Hutton's delivery into the box but his header is well off target.

  64. Post update

    BBC Radio Scotland commentator John Barnes described the atmosphere at Ibrox as eerie and he's spot on.

  65. Post update

    Some nice one touch stuff from Rangers on the left wing gets them into the final third and the foul by Dale Carrick on Kenny Miller gives them a chance to load up the box, but the free kick is floated straight to David McGurn.

  75. RAITH ROVERS MANAGER GRANT MURRAY

  76. LOAN RANGERS

    On loan Newcastle players Remie Streete and Haris Vuckic are in the Rangers starting line up for the fifth round tie against Raith Rovers.

  77. RANGERS MANAGER KENNY MCDOWALL

    The caretaker Rangers manager Kenny McDowall refused to be drawn further on the loan players in his starting line-up

    "I said my piece on that. We're delighted to have the boys here and two are starting today. Haris [Vuckic] is a left sided midfielder and Remi [Streete] is a centre back. They have trained with the boys and are looking forward to the match.

    "You need to be professional. I'm here to do a job so I've no complaints. The boys know they have to keep the standards up. Hopefully we can get the result we're looking for."

  78. Post update

    There has been much talk this week about the players on loan at Rangers from Newcastle. Caretaker manager Kenny McDowall said he was told to pick the five if fit but the Ibrox hierarchy denied that.

    Fraser Aird and Darren McGregor find themselves benched today with Haris Vuckic and Remi Streete in. I wonder what Aird and McGregor will be making of it...

  79. STRANRAER MANAGER STEPHEN AITKEN

    "I thought we competed really well but we made a couple of individual mistakes and Dundee United were clinical. You can't afford to give them the chances we gave them.

    "But my players gave everything against a very good side. Dundee United have some quality players so we can't be too hard on the players. We just have to take it on the chin and move on."

  80. DUNDEE UNITED MANAGER JACKIE MCNAMARA

    "Second half it was quite flat with a lot of wayward passing on our part but I said it was important we were clinical and professional, and we were that.

    "Credit to Stranraer, they put us under a lot of pressure. I'd have taken 3-0 before the match so I'm happy with that.

    "Ryan Dow played a massive part in our win last week and you could see his movement today.

    "Ryan McGowan is still getting up to sharpness but I know him very well, I know what I was getting when I brought him in.

    "It's all to play for. I have a great belief in the squad we have."

  85. Post update

    Former Dundee United defender Mark Wilson at Stair Park

    "Stranraer battled away but United went about it the right way and were totally professional."

  86. Post update

    Stranraer certainly didn't disgrace themselves today but the League One leaders were guilty of a few slack moments at the back and were duly punished by the Premiership outfit.

  87. FULL-TIME

    Stranraer's Scottish Cup dream is ended by a clinical Dundee United outfit who continue their excellent form in knockout competitions.

    The Tangerines go into the last eight draw thanks to a 3-0 win, courtesy of goals from Chris Erskine and a Ryan Dow double.

  88. GREAT SAVE!

    Charlie Telfer fires in a cracking free-kick that looks destined for the top corner but keeper David Mitchell tips it over the bar.

  91. Post update

    Daniel Stoney is almost sent clean through but United defender Sean Dillon beats him to the ball.

  92. Post update

    Dundee United striker Nadir Ciftci is looking pretty frustrated out there. He seems determined to get himself on the wrong side of referee Kevin Clancy.

  93. Post update

    Sub striker Daniel Stoney is looking quite lively for the hosts. He's certainly not shy as Jaroslaw Fojut just found out when the pair collided.

  94. SUBSTITUTION

    Scott Robertson comes on for Stranraer with Chris Aitken, the manager's brother, coming off.

  95. Post update

    As a Dundee United breaks down for offside, it looks like this one is petering out.

  97. SUBSTITUTION

    Another United youngster gets a taste of the action as Charlie Telfer comes on for Henri Anier.

  98. Post update

    Henri Anier sprints at the Stranraer defence down the right flank and Ryan Dow dummies his low cross allowing the ball to run to Nadir Ciftci. However, the burly United striker is leaning back as he blazes a first-time effort over from the edge of the penalty box.

  99. SUBSTITUTION

    Birthday boy Chris Erskine, who opened the scoring for United, is replaced by Blair Spittal for the final 15 minutes or so.

  100. SUBSTITUTION

  101. CLOSE!

    Stranraer's Grant Gallacher collects a poor clearance from Sean Dillon at the edge of the box but his effort goes just wide of the top corner. He probably should have hit the target...

  102. Post update

    Stranraer are still plugging away, searching for a way back into this game, while Dundee United appear to have taken their foot off the gas a bit...

  103. Post update

    LOAN RANGERS

    Ahead of the Rangers v Raith Rovers match, we're hearing that two of the five players on loan at Ibrox from Newcastle will start the match.

  104. Post update

    With 11 goals to his name this season, Jamie Longworth was perhaps unlucky not to start today. Now's his chance to prove that to manager Stephen Aitken.

  105. SUBSTITUTION

    Jamie Longworth comes on for the home side with Stephen Stirling making way. Can he find a goal to give the Blues hope?

  106. Post update

  107. Post update

    Jackie McNamara

    Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara watches on as his side try to add to their three goal lead. He must be pretty pleased with what he's seen so far.

    Don't think you'd find many people who would disagree Allan...

  117. Post update

    The home side had their moments in the opening 45 minutes but they made mistakes at the back that cost them dearly. Dundee United have been clinical and we'd be in miracle territory if the Blues somehow managed to overturn this result.

    Sean Winter tries his luck from the angle of the area but the Stranraer man's shot flashes well wide.

  124. Post update

    The visitors are flying now and Nadir Ciftci wants in on the goal action, but his low free kick from the edge of the box is easily gathered by David Mitchell.

  125. GOAL

    STRANRAER 0-3 DUNDEE UNITED (Ryan Dow)

    Jackie McNamara's men have pretty much killed this off now. Nadir Ciftci beats his man in midfield and plays in Ryan Dow who ghosts in behind Scott Rumsby, rounds keeper David Mitchell and finishes calmly

  126. GOAL

    STRANRAER 0-2 DUNDEE UNITED (Ryan Dow)

    Stranraer responded well to the goal but United go up the park and score a crucial second. Ryan Dow cashes in on hesitancy from Scott Rusmby, cuts in from the left and shows great composure to dink the ball over David Mitchell and into the net.

    It's a long way back for the Blues...

  127. GOAL

    STRANRAER 0-1 DUNDEE UNITED (Chris Erskine)

    Just as I was talking up the hosts they shoot themselves in the foot...

    Sean Winter tries to find Scott Rumsby but his pass is too strong and Chris Erskine latches on to it, poking the ball under the onrushing goalkeeper to give Dundee United the lead.

  128. Post update

    Premiership side Dundee United will know they are in for a real test today. Stranraer are full of energy and are working incredibly hard.

  129. Post update

    Smoke bombs at Stair Park

    A few smoke bombs have been thrown on to the pitch at Stair Park today.

  130. Post update

    We have a slight delay now as another smoke bomb is thrown on to the pitch. We had a few before the match as well. A good old metal bucket does the trick tough...

  131. Post update

    As our radio colleagues have pointed out, today's referee Kevin Clancy does have vanishing spray with him. Reckon it might have slipped his mind at that last set piece though.

  132. Post update

    Stephen Aitken's side have enjoyed the better of the first 10 minutes but a free kick in a good position is wasted by Willie Gibson as he drills it high over the bar.

  137. Post update

    The visitors are the first to threaten with Chris Erskine trying his luck from distance with the left foot. No joy though as it swings well wide.

  138. Post update

    Dundee United's Paul Paton takes a hefty hit in the first few seconds. The Blues are looking to set down an early marker methinks.

  139. KICK-OFF

    And we're off at Stair Park...

  140. Post update

    The two teams are waiting in the tunnel...

  141. Post update

    Former Dundee United defender Mark Wilson at Stair Park

    "Stranraer have to keep it tight, which is going to be a difficult task against Dundee United. Any set pieces they get they have got to make them count."

  142. Post update

    A few minutes until kick-off folks...

  143. DUNDEE UNITED MANAGER JACKIE MCNAMARA

    "It's a tricky place to come against a team that is going well in their own league so we have to be professional.

    "It's a cup final to Stranraer so it's important we don't give them any encouragement in the game. The pitch is better than Hampden was last weekend, and probably in better condition than ours at the moment to be honest.

    "It's important we take the game to them and start with a real intensity.

    "We've lost two lads this week and other lads have been waiting on the opportunity."

    So there's clearly no chance the Stair Park surface will be taking the blame should Dundee United crash out of the tournament today.

  144. STRANRAER MANAGER STEPHEN AITKEN

    "We're looking forward to the game, we've prepared well all week. We have to give them the respect they deserve and we need to keep it nice and tight. Hopefully we can grow into the game.

    "We've been playing well and it's great we're up there challenging in the league."

  145. Post update

    Stranraer will be determined to end Dundee United's dreams of glory today at Stair Park.

  146. Post update

    Our reporters are talking to the managers just now, we'll bring you their comments soon.

  147. PAIN KILLERS

    John Rankin

    There was disappointment for John Rankin and the Dundee United players last season when they lost 2-0 to St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup final at Celtic Park.

    A win against Stranraer today will edge them one step closer to banishing those painful memories.

  148. Post update

    United have been quite the cup specialists since Jackie McNamara took over. They reached the Scottish Cup final last season, losing to St Johnstone, and have already booked a place in this year's League Cup final, where they will face Celtic.
