BOOKIES reckoned only four teams could win the Scottish Cup – and two of them were paired in the fourth-round draw.

Tie of the round features Hearts v Aberdeen while Celtic travel to Stranraer and Rangers face Cowdenbeath or Arbroath at home.

So no worries for the Old Firm but will it be the Jambos or Aberdeen? The Dons won 3-1 at Tynecastle earlier in the season but their form has dipped although they played well second half against Ross County at the weekend. Hearts have been drawing too many games recently and the teams may have to go back to Pittodrie.

Holders Inverness also have an easy route to the last 16 with a tie at Stirling or non-league Cumbernauld.

Following the draw Celtic are 5-4 favourites with bet365 and Ladbrokes. Rangers are second favourites on their own with some firms but McBookie have both teams at 10-1 with Hearts 12-1 and St Johnstone are 16-1 fifth favourites with most companies.

    Lithgae Rose are due to play on Saturday but know folk went up at 6 am for it to be called off at half 2. 2 winnable ties i think and maybe the tv cameras will be at Prestonfield intead of tynecastle ?

      Alves, nae chance – Rose might win at Wick but it’s hardly a glamour game if they do.
      The way the weather is it might not be played before the fourth-round games are due to be played.
