  5. 'It is a good draw' - McInnes

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "If we are all being honest, Celtic are the strongest team by a long way.

    "So it is a good draw and Hibs will probably see it as a good draw.

    "Hibs have done really well and are holders and this is the type of game you want to be involved in.

    "If you look at the level of player Hibs have got, the experience of the manager and the fact they won the cup last year and have that experience, there shouldn't be too much between the teams.

    "If we are deemed to be favourites, so be it and we just have to do our business on the pitch."

  11. 'We'd prefer to avoid Celtic'

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes speaking on BBC One Scotland: “It’s all about getting through in the cup and I thought we were the better team throughout. I thought we missed some good opportunities. 

    "It was hard fought. We had to fight for everything we got against this Thistle team. 

    "They’re a good side. We knew chances would be at a premium, but I thought we created enough chances to score more than one goal. Just delighted to get the win. 

    “Somebody’s got to win (the cup). We feel on our day we can beat any team in the country. 

    "We’ve beaten everybody other than Celtic and I think everybody will be wanting to avoid Celtic in the draw. 

    "But we’re just glad to be in the semi-final and, if we get them, we just need to make sure we’re as good as we can be.”

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald on BBC Radio Scotland: "I thought we started brightly enough, but we fell out of the game and lost a lot of individual battles.

    "I started the same side, but they looked a bit leggy and maybe Aberdeen's extra day of rest made the difference.

    "We had a late rally, but we didn't do enough.

    "We're not too despondent because we were beaten by a top side."
