Well, what do you think? There's a few cracking ties in there; for a second we thought the stars had aligned to throw up Celtic v Rangers.

Holders Inverness CT will face a trip to Stirling Albion or Cumbernauld Colts.

St Johnstone v Kilmarnock and Hearts v Aberdeen look absolute corkers.

#bbcsportscot @bbcthomasmcg what's the odds on an old firm draw in this round? About a million to one?

@BBCthomasmcg Rangers - Celtic at Ibrox... The place would be bouncing! #BBCSportScot

Hughes deal

'Extremely pleased'

Inverness CT manager John Hughes has agreed a two-year contract extension, committing him to the club until the summer of 2018.

"I'm extremely pleased that negotiations have been satisfactorily concluded and that my future lies with Caley Thistle," said Hughes. 

"It's the outcome I really wanted as I've really enjoyed myself at the club and in the Highlands."

Hopefully ICT draw Falkirk again and parade the Cup before kick-off. Here's what you could have won.

Has to be Rangers at Pittodrie - what a buzz that would be #bbcsportscot

@nelsonmcf @BBCthomasmcg might want to check how few home draws @celticfc have had in SC in last 10 years before making daft comments.

Fret no longer Melvin [13:05 question] - we don't want you incurring the wrath of the boss.

The other team to do it? Edinburgh outfit St Bernard's way back in 1895...
